When asked in a recent interview at E3 2017, John Clark, senior vice-president for commercial publishing at Sega, confirmed that his company is thinking of bringing Yakuza and Persona to PC. Essentially, the question asked was if Yakuza was included in the list that Sega would want to bring to PC.
He then elaborated his answer by saying that Sega recognizes the IP's worth to the company. Clark then added that Yakuza needs to continue to grow and get bigger. He also added that Persona is included in the list of the top ten games Sega would bring to PC. So, PC owners who are fans of the games will have something to look forward to in the foreseeable future.
What Is Yakuza All About?
Yakuza is an action-adventure game developed and published by Sega for PlayStation 2. It debuted in Japan in 2005 and internationally a year after. The story is about Kazuma Kiryu, a yakuza. He was imprisoned for 10 years for a crime he didn't commit. After being released, he is entangled with the infamous crime cartel. Gameplay is set in a fictional place called Kamurocho which is patterned after the Kabukicho district in Tokyo.
Here's The History Of Persona
Persona is an RPG that was originally developed and published by Atlus. It was actually a spin-off from Megami Tensei. The first game in the franchise was titled Revelations: Persona which was released in 1996. Nine console titles and four spin-off video games followed after that. The latest is Persona 5 which was released in Japan in 2016. Gamers are summoned by different characters in a battle and acquire their personality.
But Sega Did Not Confirm If They Are Already In Development
Clark did not confirm if Yakuza and Persona for PC are already in development. However, industry observers believe that his recent admission about Sega's plans for the two titles show how serious the game developer is in its effort to bring this project to reality.
