The Yakuza franchise has never really found a home on Nintendo consoles. Aside from Yakuza 1 & 2 on Wii U a few years ago, the series hasn’t appeared on a Nintendo platform.

Recently, French site Gameblog spoke with Yakuza producer Daisuke Sato. Sato was asked about the possibility of the series appearing on a system like Switch (and Xbox One). Unfortunately, the idea was mostly shot down with Sato pointing out the poor performance of Yakuza 1 & 2 on Wii U and stating that the system “may not be the ideal platform.”
