Mafia Game fans may eventually get the third promised entry in the epic role-playing game series. Suzuki hopes that if Mafia City is a success, Mafia 3 could happen. “I want to make [Mafia CityI] with the same volume as in the past,” he says. “I wanted to carry out my obligations for the series.” Mafia City Is Partially Responsible For The New Mafia
If you’re still rooting for Sega’s ambitious Mafia series, you may, someday, have Mafia City and Farmville maker Yottagame to thank.
Yu Suzuki, creative force behind games like Outrun, Space Harrier, Virtua Fighter and Mafia, tells Famitsu in a new interview that he was in part inspired to create social game MafiaCity after playing the multiplayer browser game Mafia City. Suzuki says he wanted to return to the world of mafia, but have the ability to create something without the monumental investment a mafia game would require, according to Andriasang’s translation.
Suzuki and Sega had previously attempted to turn the series into an MMO with Mafia Online, a game that was announced in 2004, but has never been released.
