Role(s): Musician

Yasuhiro "Yas" Takagi (高木 保浩) is among the oldest of Sega's sound team members and perhaps best known as the Sound Director for Shenmue II. His earliest work with the company was for Turbo OutRun, where he worked with renowned Sega composer Hiroshi Kawaguchi.

Unlike Hiro, whom he has worked with since joining Sega in the late '80s, Takagi's roles have been largely in the background.
