The following is an episode list of the American situation funny According to Jim.

At the beginning of the year, industry veteran Toshihiro Nagoshi decided to withdraw from his position as COO of Sega. A decision that the 56-year-old founded the fact that he wants to focus more on creative works rather than having to meet management decisions

According to a current report from Bloomberg, Nagoshi now went a step further and decided to leave Sega after more than 32 years. Currently, Nagoshi is in advanced negotiations with Chinese Publisher Netease and is about to sign a corresponding contract. Surprisingly, this step does not come.

Netease is one of the sizes in the industry

Already in March of this year, Nagoshi gave an interview that caused abundant speculation. In this, the creative head behind the Yakuza series pointed out that it simply was a waste of creative potential when developers and leading employees work on the same series or brand for a long time. Statements that already rely on the assumption that Nagoshi likes to take a distance from the Yakuza franchise and would like to face new creative challenges.

In the past few years, Nagoshi worked at numerous projects such as Yakuza, Jugdment, F-Zero GX or the Virtua Fighter franchise and is likely to be a creative profit for Netease.
