Toshihiro Nagoshi, the man behind Sega’s Yakuza series, has been promoted to CCO within the company, Spong reports.
COO Okitane Usui is to retire his position and be replaced former managing director Naoya Tsurumi. Nagoshi’s development duties (which currently include Yakuza 5) will not be effected by the shuffle.
The changes will be finalized on March 31. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Kiryu Kazuma’s next adventure after that.
