Sega just announced that the next chapter of the Yakuza Series will be Yakuza: Ishin (Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin), and we already got the first teaser trailer for you to enjoy.

You can see it at the 4:20 mark in the video below, that was shown this morning on the Alta Vision landmark screen in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It shows a comparison between the historical Ryoma Sakamoto and the much cooler version that will be portrayed in the game.

As for the rest of the video, it  features the results of the popularity contest between Yakuza characters held in Japan, that saw Goro Majima triumph over the main series’ protagonist Kazuma Kiryu with 203,667 votes against 188,921. Who is surprised?
