After the successful releases of Vanquish and Bayonetta on the PC, a lot of PC gamers began wondering whether the Japanese publisher would port additional games that were previously exclusive on consoles. And it appears that both the Yakuza and Persona franchises may find their way to our platform.
As SEGA Europe’s senior vice president of commercial publishing, John Clark, told PCGamer, when asked about Yakuza.
“If I asked you to write me a list of ten games you want Sega to bring out on PC, it probably isn’t any different from the list [we have]. I could ask anyone at Sega: write me a list. And what motivates it? I think there’s a certain catalogue that people just have an affinity with.
It’s on that listOf course something we’re talking about it… that would just be incredible to bring that to the PC audience.”
Alongside Yakuza is Persona and like Yakuza, it may be eventually ported to the PC.
“Of course, of course – I keep trying to get in ahead of you, I’m trying to guess what you’re going to say next. We don’t feel that anything is off the table in terms of these conversations. The fact that as an organisation we’re having these healthy conversations, they’re constructive, we recognise the value, we recognise the value of the community, the IP. The IP has got continued life to grow and get bigger.”
So yeah, SEGA teases future PC releases for both Yakuza and Persona, though we do have to note that nothing has been confirmed at this point!
