Toshihiro Nagoshi will be joined by core Yakuza staff to form Ryu ga Gotoku Studio

Yakuza and Super Monkeyball creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has formed a new studio within Sega, Andriasang reports.

According to an interview with Nagoshi in Famitsu magazine, the studio will be called "Ryu ga Gotoku Studio" - named for the Japanese language title of the Yakuza series.

However, Ryu ga Gotoku Studio is working on projects outside of the Yakuza franchise: its first release will be the multi-platform squad-based shooter Binary Domain, with Yakuza Black Panther 2 for PSP to follow.

Nagoshi will be joined by Masayoshi Kikuchi, Daisuke Sato, Yojiro Ogawa and Masayoshi Yokoyama. The studio will begin recruiting soon.
