Suzuki is currently finishing development on Shenmue III, his first major release for more than a decade, with publisher Deep Silver, and has indicated he would like to revisit his other franchises too.
Suzuki is creating Shenmue III with his company YS Net, but remains a consultant with his former employer Sega.
Asked if he would like to return to Virtua Fighter and Out Run, Suzuki told VGC: “Yes I would like to [return to those]. If you’re going to ask me what, I can’t answer that!”
Pushed on whether that means he might already be in discussions for the IP, he replied: “Yes, there might be something [happening]. But since the IP you mentioned are owned by Sega, I would need to work with them. I am a special consultant with Sega, but we will need to talk.”
