Kazuma to star alongside Majima in Yakuza game


SEGA have recently revealed that Kazuma Kiryu will indeed be starring alongside Goro Majima for the new Yakuza title and carrying on the theme with weapons, Kazuma comes equipped with a large new gun. Not much has been revealed about the game from Nagoshi in the latest Famitsu magazine. On the announcement of Kazuma Kiryu, Toshihiro Nagoshi said;

It’s said that if Kiryu doesn’t appear, Yakuza cannot begin. However, when we revealed Majima as the first main character, in addition to the reaction of ‘You can use Majima this time!’ it was widely said that ‘Kiryu is gone!’ and ‘It’s a game exclusively with Majima,’ so we wanted to quickly get out information about Kiryu’s appearance as well. Please wait just a bit more for the next update.

No doubt that guns will now be playing a bigger part in the series than ever before but in what capacity remains to be seen, before weapons have been largely ineffective in brawls in the game so a massive overhaul on the typical gameplay seems to be on the cards as Nagoshi hinted in an earlier interview. Tokyo Game Show should present fans of the series with a better idea of what to look forward to in this latest installment.

    Wow, a new Yakuza game!

    I begin to be bored about the Yakuza series, why in hell SEGA Japan can make only Yakuzas? Stop it and make Shenmue III damnit!!!!

    It's not a new Yakuza game, it's the game that's already been announced, but confirmation that Kazuma will return in this game with Majima. Changed the title to reflect this incase I cause more confusion.

    And Shenmue would cost millions of dollars more than what Yakuza costs to make, maybe even three times.

    I have only played Yakuza 1 and 2 on the ps2 and I loved them to death. I'm not sure if this whole gunweilding Kazuma works for me…

    I got some confusion with all these Yakuzas…

    I know Shenmue would cost millions of dollars more, but I wanted to say that Sega Japan can't keep continuing to make only Yakuza, Monkey Ball and Sonic :-/ Why always the same…

    If the game is suppose to be entirely different, why not make a different game?

    The Yakuza series deserve a break.

    Honestly of all of SEGA upcoming releases, I am most interested in seeing how this all turns out. Obviously I am a bit tired with SEGA just churning these Yakuza releases, but they are always so great, Nagoshi is the man and all.
