The Yakuza series creator and resident producer Toshihiro Nagoshi was interviewed by singer Ayano Omoto (Nocchi of Perfume). In a conversation with Nagoshi, the girl asked if he was entrusted with making the game not in the Asian setting, then what would he choose.
The Japanese developer is confident that he would create a game in a European setting .
In foreign games, the location of the action is mainly taken by the cities of the United States, for example, Los Angeles. I would choose something in Europe, it would be much more interesting.
However, you cannot choose places that no one has heard of. It is pointless. You need to take famous cities so that the player is immersed in the process and is in votorg from what is happening. For example, climb the Eiffel Tower. Only I would have done it differently, more dramatically.
It is unlikely that we will see something like this from Nagoshi, although who knows. Prior to this, the Yakuza team developed the third-person shooter Binary Domain, which is set in futuristic Japan.
