As previously reported, the new Yakuza game, Yakuza 0, has been announced. As you can probably guess from the number, it's a prequel.
The next Yakuza game won't be a spin-off like Yakuza Ishin! or Yakuza: Dead Souls, but the creators won't commit to it being a numbered game. So, what the hell is it? Apparently, it's for men.
2013 was a great year for gaming. After what was accomplished this year, let's see what Japanese game developers hope to do in 2014.
Yakuza 5 is scheduled for release in Japan next week and the developers at Sega are in full PR mode. Executive producer Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama spoke to Weekly Famitsu in a pre-release interview to talk about the latest in the Yakuza franchise.
