Next Yakuza Game To Be Titled Yakuza Zero

The latest bit of information (and I do mean bit) has come out of SEGA on the storied Yakuza franchise (also known as Ryu Ga Gotoku in Japan), we knew a game was coming, but there was no title at that time.  The title for the latest iteration is now known, and the next game will be called Yakuza Zero, and the game will be cross-gen, appearing on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.  Not much more than that is known at this time, but going to the Ryu Ga Gotoku website shows us that more information is coming on August 28 at 18:00 (presumably JST).  Once we know more we will be sure to let you know, though it’s probably a safe bet to say the Dragon of Dojima, Kazuma Kiryu will be returning.

In the meantime, can someone please remind Sega once again that we still would like a North American release of Yakuza 5?
