Sega’s Yakuza games don’t really have much of a history with Nintendo’s platforms, but somehow questions continue to be asked about the possibility of the series coming to the Switch.
During an interview with IGN Japan recently, series producer Toshihiro Nagoshi said the third-person action adventure games had not been considered for the Switch, at least for now. While it’s not much, it is slightly different from the response we heard last July, about Nintendo’s hybrid system not being the right platform for this series.
This followed on with a question asking if there was a chance of Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima – two lead characters from the series – appearing as DLC characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nagoshi seemed to find this amusing and jokingly said the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai wouldn’t want them.
The last time the Yakuza series graced one of Nintendo’s platforms was during the Wii U generation when Sega gave Yakuza 1 & 2 HD a Japan-only release in 2013. Sales bombed and the bundle shipped less than 2000 copies in its first week.
