Yu Suzuki would like to return to Virtua Fighter and Outrun, says “there might be something happening”

    VGC sat down for an interview with former SEGA employee and YS NET CEO Yu Suzuki. He’s currently finishing up development of Shenmue III and would like to revisit other franchises. As of now, Suzuki is currently a consultant for Sega and still has ties to the company. Here’s the excerpt from the VGC interview:

    Asked if he would like to return to Virtua Fighter and Out Run, Suzuki told VGC: “Yes I would like to [return to those]. If you’re going to ask me what, I can’t answer that!”

    Pushed on whether that means he might already be in discussions for the IP, he replied: “Yes, there might be something [happening]. But since the IP you mentioned are owned by Sega, I would need to work with them. I am a special consultant with Sega, but we will need to talk.”

    Yu Suzuki is well known for being the Sega AM2 founder. He started many Sega franchises in the past including Outrun, Virtua Fighter and Shenmue. Shenmue III will release on November 19th for PS4 and PC.
