Yu Suzuki's Early Days in Manga Form! Part 2/3 | Scanlation by Daniel Mann

Part Two of Daniel Mann's scanlation of a manga that was originally published in 2019 by DenFamiNicoGamer, about the early days of the legendary games creator Yu Suzuki.

Go here to start from the first part:

Thanks to Daniel for making this fun manga about Yu Suzuki's life accessible to English-speaking fans!

In this part of the interview, Yu Suzuki talks about the first supervisor he had at Sega, the first game he wrote (Champion Boxing), the realism of his hit game Hang-On and more.

Note: the manga panels read right to left.


The third and final part of this series will follow soon!
