    Great news.
    IMO they should take a break in the Yakuza series and do something new

    I think they’ll have to, I can’t see how they can really expand on the whole Ryu Ga Gotoku/Yakuza franchise for a while.

    A while back the Yakuza team was toying with the idea of making a new Panzer Dragoon game… and also a new JSR game.

    The two ideas never made it off the drawing board though.

    Was the Yakuza team originally made up of Sega’s older studio names like Smilebit and Overworks?
