Developers, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.
A division of Sega development that traces its roots back to 1998, Ryu Ga Gotoku (“RGG”) is a Japanese studio responsible for the 2012 third-person shooter Binary range. However, you’re probably more familiar with RGG’s most notable work, namely Yakuza series. Since 2012, RGG has been responsible for the action-adventure franchise, developing new main entries and re-mastering old ones while compiling spin-offs such as to rule serial and latest remake, Like a dragon: Ishin!

Filled with flowing silhouettes, wild colors and patterns and An interesting blend of casual and smart aestheticsPeople of the Land of the Rising Sun Know how to dress. RGG is no exception. Sure, the suits the developers wear for 40 seconds in the above video are all black, but the nuance is in the details. Two employees wear jackets with interesting markings: one with an assortment of white dots and the other with a plentiful little cross. A different employee has a coat with tastefully distinctive white stripes. Three other staff have all-over styles, with two of the staff suits having a pretty sheen.

Even the developer boots, while nondescript on the surface, really add to the developer’s collective drip. Most in the picture have round, pointed toe, polished looking loafers with no laces as if they just stepped out of a group matrix or something. Two others mix things up a bit, with one staff member having what appears to be round lace-up shoes like Dr. Martens (though maybe not that exact brand) and another who appears to be wearing some very dark, possibly suede shoes.

Strange to see, especially in an industry known for some of the most anticipated fashion combinations (graphic and jacket) ever.
