Sega just announced that the results of the popularity contest between Yakuza (Ryu ga Gotoku) characters held on the series’ official website will be officially disclosed on August the 18th at 5 PM Japan time directly on the iconic landmark mega screen Alta Vision in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
But that’s not all. The official announcement mentioned something a lot juicier, in the form of a “surprise announcement” set to happen during the unveiling. Considering the timing, we’re most probably going to hear about a new Yakuza game, considering that almost all the previous chapters of the series have been announced between August and September.
The series’ creator Toshihiro Nagoshi already mentioned that Yakuza 5 would be the last Yakuza game of the PS3 generation. Will we hear about Yakuza 6 for PS4 on August the 18th? Will the series remain PlayStation Exclusive?
