New Yakuza Game Will Be on Both PS4 and PS3; Won’t Be A Spin-off

In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu there’s an interview with Yakuza series producers Toshihiro Nagoshi and Masayoshi Yokoyama. The duo talks about the next Yakuza (Ryu ga Gotoku) game in development, and they reveal the platforms.

The game will still come to both PS3 and PS4 like Yakuza Ishin, but this time it won’t be a spin-off, even if they declined to comment on whether it’ll be called Ryu ga Gotoku 6 or not.

We’ll stand by for further information soon, but for now looks like Sega isn’t ready to move on from the PS3. Hopefully it won’t hold back the PS4 version too much.

  • Alexander

    Will it be localized?

    • saiyanknight87

      yeah that’s my next question i hope it’s localized

    • TRICO

      judging from the past games Yes This will be localized

      • judging from the past games — no, it won’t be localized. Yakuza 5 and Ishin wasn’t. There is only a rumour that Atlus will localize Yakuza 5.

        • TRICO

          So you still think they’re gonna release Yakuza 5 and Ishin to the west? you have high hopes man it’s nearly 2 years after Y5 released in japan but i’ll be happy if that happen it’s good to see more people experience this awesome series

          • No, I don’t think they gonna release Yakuza 5, Ishin and new game in the West. I’ve bought japanese Ishin for PS4, and will play it with some translation manuals. Always wanted to learn Japanese. But before it I should complete my English lessons. 🙂

    What if I told you at TGS 2014, the remaining Yakuza titles unreleased in North America & Europe, will have a set number of Worldwide release dates in holiday’14 for PS3 and PS4.

  • Oh kami sama please all that is holy bring this to the west!

  • Synthetic Construct

  • To be fair, Yakuza: Ishin looked fantastic on the PS3.
