Next Yakuza already in development


While it’s a surprise to absolutely nobody, Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama have confirmed to Famitsu that they’ve begun work on the next Yakuza game, following the release of Yakuza Ishin earlier this year.

Details are scarce, with a more formal reveal likely to take place in the near future. For now, the two mostly discussed the process of auditioning the game’s hostesses.

As has become typical, it’s unlikely that we’ll hear anything about a Western release, though I’d love to be proven wrong.

Keep it glued to SEGAbits for the latest on the Yakuza series and of course all other SEGA news.

    Was Yakuza Ishin a commercial sucess ?

    It’s tough to say, really.

    Kinda depends what Sega was expecting.

    Sega needs to start putting an english subtitle option in their games, so that true fans that want to buy and play them; can import these great yakuza titles; rather than east distribution !!!!!!!!!! win/win situation for everybody.
