New social game by Sega veteran Yu Suzuki to be free-to-play

The creator of popular open-world RPG Shenmue has taken to mobile to develop his latest title.

As reported by Famitsu, and translated by Andriasang, Sega veteran Yu Suzuki’s new game will be a free-to-play game for iOS and Android called Gan! Gan! Pirates.

The arcade-style gun shooting title will also have social features, with players able to work co-operatively or against each other.

The game is currently slated for release on Android and iOS in September.

Japan game designer Yu Suzuki is most famous for his work on the Shenmue series on the Dreamcast and other titles such as Virtua Cop, Virtua Figher and Virtua Racing.
