    He said that he uses the names of people who look after him or treat him well. That means there is a Real Kazuma Kiryu out there somewhere, wrestling bulls lol.

    Nintendo’s updated top sellers charts only started in the DS/Wii era, and GX wouldn’t have made the cutoff there anyway most likely.

    Nintendo doesn’t updated sales regularly, they just give million sellers within each FY. If F-Zero GX didn’t clear 1m globally within a FY then it wouldn’t get listed but it could still clear a million over 2+ FY and still never get listed.

    So the reason for no new F-Zero is that they can't get a studio to make it?

    Nice to see the Trademark Nagoshi-san lies... He did say how MS turned down Yakuza before (the project was started by the JSRF team) and sorry to give Nagoshi-san any sort of history lesson over SEGA. But Sammy didn't even buy the CSK shares until December 2003 before the complete take over in 2004, but which time Yakuza was long into production as Nagoshi san confirmed in his AV column over SEGA's HUGE project he wasn't allowed to say much about. If only Yu Suzuki or better yet Masayoshi Kikuchi was in charge of SEGA's consumer divisions rather than Nagoshi-san

    1,5M on GC is pretty decent. I don't understand Nintendo's tsance towards the franchise and this game alone. If you can't find a studio for a new one have one to remaster GX, they even have the source code.
     
  10. It wastnt f zero gx that tanked the series, it the was the following GBA games that had tepid sales on top of being released far too frequently that iced the series.

    I'm not sure what it is, but it'd be a first for Edge to do a typo or mistranslation like this...
    Probably in the future yeah, but the magazine just came out for subscribers, so I can't really put everything.
    It's pretty long, but this part is mostly about how he was promoted really quickly and that experience made him humble. Will see if I can post a quote or so tonight.
    He's saying "systems" more in a gameplay systems way.

    Nagoshi sounds so cool, man.

    Whoa whoa whoa... the series is in a sort of Golden Age right now, with titles like 0, Ishin, Kiwami 2, and Fist of the North Star being released under the Yakuza brand in recent years. By most accounts, these are all fantastic. Wouldn't have been possible without a decade's worth of work and refinement.

    Would a F-Zero GX HD on Switch be possible without analog triggers?

    My guess is he's counting the Player's Choice edition in those numbers because it just doesn't add up with what we know from when NPD was actually public.

    Or more likely, he misheard something.

    From the interview thread:

     
  20. I mean I can't blame them I never saw the appeal of it until I played Zero and then ended up enjoying it quite a lot, I ruined it by then playing 6 I don't enjoy things once I know how it all ends so I have no desire to play the others now.

    Just like SEGA and Sony initially.

    And we also have a thread for this.
     
  27. Wonder what that means for Majima.
     
  28. I don't understand. Was Sony involved in the development of the original game?

    It's a shame Nagoshi's been been working almost exclusively on Yakuza or Yakuza-adjacent projects for the past decade. I'd love to see him branch back out to different genres/series.

    I read it as allowing the game to be on their platform but I might be wrong.
    Nah. Put it on as many platforms as possible. More success and bigger budget for the games.

    This was the PS2 era. Back then, there's a higher level of curation ( tldr; personal taste of platform holders ) of what makes it on their platforms.

    This. There are times where Sony rejected games (2d games, shoot 'em up etc). You can't win them all.
     
  39. Well said. Who knows who even was in charge at MS and Nintendo at the time.

    And these kind of posts.....nah.

    Just make fzero and stopped these...
     
  42. I gotta take a double look.

    If anyone doesn't mention it's him, I probably wouldn't know it...
     
  43. But that doesn't really make any sense. Why would platform holders ban such a game from releasing on their platform? Even Nintendo wasn't picky about the games that released on their consoles at that point.

    Maybe they were worried that the real-life Yakuza would come after them or something?

    Not to my recollection! There was vast amounts of budget shovelware on the PS2!

    It's the same principle why Bayonetta ended up being Nintendo exclusive: Sony and Microsoft didn't care.

    Maybe they should indeed release it elsewhere. Unless they want to stick to sub 1 million sales every time. Yakuza 0 released on Steam and sold rather well despite being nearly 2 years late.

    Wow! I'd never seen him pre-Yakuza and he always just straight up looked yakuza so I assumed he just always looked like that,
     
  49. Released on the Wii U + released almost a year later from the exact same collection on the PS3.
