This fall, a spin-off installment of the popular "Yakuza" crime franchise will hit the PSP. That's not all, though. The game is also getting turned into a Japanese television show.
Dubbed "Ryu Ga Gotoku Shinshou Kurohyou" or "Yakuza: New Chapter Black Panther", the game follows the adventures of young ruffian Tatsuya and his crazy hair. Actor Takumi Saitoh will play Tatsuya. The rest of the cast will be rounded out by actor Hideo Ishiguro, actor Takuya Ishida and veteran performer Kouichi Iwaki.
The Yakuza series is no stranger to the Japanese entertainment industry. The games regularly feature some of the biggest names of screen and television in voice acting roles.
The weekly television series, Kurohyou, will start on October 5.
