The veteran developer described the game as a project that doesn't stray too far from the formula of the Yakuza series, with plenty of violence, humor and drama. In his interview with 4Players, he stated: This game will definitely have violence as an element, but I don't want to go too far into horror or even horror. I want my game to be more like a Quentin Tarantino movie, so there can be humor. Something that is only scary or only bloody and brutal does not suit my taste. I want a human touch, a little silliness and a little seriousness in this game, that's what I'm in the mood for right now.
A word on when players can expect to see the game. Beshen stated that the public will see the unveiling of the project much sooner than what other developers might do. This recent comment from Nagoshi, who stated that he would like to have violence along with some humor and of course drama in his new studio's first game, reminds us exactly of the Yakuza series of games that have such elements constantly side by side.
Toshihiro Nagoshi also mentioned the human drama in his previous interview and explained that he wanted to add cinematic features to his game so that a global audience could enjoy it. "We're not going to make, say, puzzle games for smartphones or anything like that," he said in a previous interview. Those games are fun but what we're good at and what the world expects from us are games with dramatic and moving stories and that's what we want to make. So that's what we're focusing on."Read more: Details of Nagoshi Studio's Debut Released; A big cinematic game
