Interview With Sega’s AM2

AM2 is Sega’s most respected development studio, responsible for some of the biggest gaming innovations of all time. Epic projects like Virtua Fighter and Shenmue redefined their genres, but there are perhaps more obvious examples. The first thrilling into-the-screen arcade racer, OutRun, debuted in 1986 - and a just few years later, the modern 3D arcade experience debuted with Virtua Racing and Daytona USA - the direct result of visionaries like Yu Suzuki and Toshihiro Nagoshi. Late in 2003, OutRun2 debuted in arcades - and now it’s coming to Xbox with a whole lot more than you might expect. We recently had the opportunity to sit down with AM2’s Development Director Makoto Osaki, for an extensive chat. Mr Osaki joined Sega in 1993 and first worked with Toshihiro Nagoshi on Daytona USA. He now takes charge of all development, reporting to Hiroshi Kataoka, the AM2 president who succeeded Yu Suzuki when his Digital Rex studio was created. As well as taking care of projects developed inside Sega Japan, including OutRun2 arcade, Mr Osaki has also been heavily involved with the OutRun2 Xbox project, developed by Sumo Digital in conjunction with Sega Europe and its top producer, Kats Sato.
