Yu Suzuki doesn’t work for Sega any more

Tuesday, 12th August 2008 12:35 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Everyone else is running this and we don’t want to feel left out. In an interview with Gamasutra, Sega US boss Simon Jeffery has confirmed that Shenmue developer Yu Suzuki doesn’t work at Sega any more. Which is probably why you haven’t heard anything about anything he’s been doing at Sega for the past 3,000 years.

Speaking of names, what has happened to Yu Suzuki?

SJ: Last I heard, he was doing some online stuff in China.

He’s spearheaded an arcade racing title. Is he just really off in his own world?

SJ: Yeah. He’s kind of his own man right now. Every now and again, he’ll come up with an idea, and I don’t think anything has come out of that yet, but we’re still working with him. He’s not an employee anymore, but…

I wasn’t sure if he was still actually a Sega employee.

SJ: Not as far as I know.

There. Now we’re part of the gang.

    They shouldn’t've let him go – his name is Suzuki. It’s a great name.

    “Hi. I’m Andy. What’s your name?”

    “Yu.”

    “Um. No, what’s your name?”

    “Yu!”

    Etc.

    All I will say is, at least have a Shenmue III movie to close the $%^#@$#% story!
