In an interview with German outlet 4Players, Yakuza series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi shared the first few details about the debut game from Nagoshi Studio including inspiration from Quentin Tarantino film.
The new Nagoshi Studio game contains elements of violence but will be “more like a Quentin Tarantino film” rather than a horror or thriller game.
“Of course I can’t reveal too much about our game just yet, but I can give you a rough idea: It will definitely contain violence as a game element, but I don’t want to go too much in the direction of thrillers or even horror,” producer Nagoshi said. “I want my game to be more like a Quentin Tarantino film, so there’s room for humor. Something that’s just intimidating or just gory and brutal isn’t to my liking—I want a human touch, some silliness, and some seriousness—that’s what I’m in the mood for right now.
Nagoshi added, “Again, I have to remain vague. But it’s like this: If I have an idea and want to implement it—then it soon bubbles out of me. I’m not the type to hold back something like this for long. So you probably won’t have to wait around for much longer… Or let’s say: I think I’ll go public with this a lot sooner than other developers would!”
