Yakuza Black Panther footage

Somewhere deep in this Japanese madness is ingame footage of Yakuza Black Panther for the PSP.

One clip shows off a two player battle mode that looks a lot like a fighting game and another shows off one of the hostesses doing her thing. The graphics look really good for a PSP game, check it out!

Work at Ramen shop in Black Panther: New Yakuza Chapter

Tatsuya will be able to get jobs, to earn money. One of the jobs recently revealed is working at a Ramen restaurant named Kyushu Ichibanboshi.

Famitsu screenshots reveal that the part time job will be a rhythm mini-game. You will be behind the counter, facing the screen and buttons will scroll across. Press the button, Tatsuya puts the ingredient in the ramen. Simple.

SEGA has already signed 3 real life models for their Hostess part of the game. Those are Yuu Tejima, An Nakamura and Aya Hoshi. An Nakamura is even shown pole dancing in one of the screens. I wonder how long you have to work at making ramen to get some of that action?

UPDATE: Scans after the jump!

More Black Panther: New Yakuza chapter info

I guess we will call the game, Black Panther here instead of Black Leopard, even if the game has no official US name. We already know with the last trailer, that the lead character Tatsuya Ukyou accidentally kills Naoki Toda, a high ranking Tojo Clan member. What we did not know is that Ukyo was planning on leaving Kamurocho after the killing, but was attacked by some men that knocked him out with a stun gun.

When Ukyo was unconscious they took him to Dragon Heat, an underground fighting arena that is ran by the Tojo Clan’s Kuki family. There is a big fight going on, two fighters are going at it, Takeru and Ryu. Takeru is powerful, but loses because of Ryu’s dead on hits. Uyko is then approached by the manager, Ryutaro Kuki, telling him if he joins Dragon Heat he will overlook the death of Naoki Toda.

All the shops you expect will be included, hostess bars will be there and there plays to be over 100 side quests. Just because its on the small screen does not mean it will be a small game.
