The Yakuza Complete Series was recently released on GOG, offering PC players a DRM-free option, with the entire series packaged together, ranging from Yakuza 0 to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. It looks Ryu Ga Gotoko Studio (RGG) took out something else, too: the names of former employees that left to form Nagoshi Studio (including series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Daisuke Sato) as well as entire support studios, such as Lab42 (Yakuza 0, Kiwami) and QLOC (Kiwami 2 through Yakuza 6).
Redditor u/Timo653 took it upon themselves to compare and contrast both the original and updated credits of each game, noting that the GOG credits are significantly shorter with all the removed names. u/Jamhood007 hit the nail on the head, describing the situation as "an extremely rare RGG studios L." u/Exotic-Ad2113, who claims to be a Lab42 employee, describes the removal with admirable mildness:
What do you think of this RGG situation? Sadly, it's not uncommon in the gaming industry and bears calling out when it occurs. Intentional slight or accidental oversight? Let us know in the comments section below.
