Sega’s Yakuza Studio is currently at work on Shin Yakuza, but there is more going on among the creators of Kazuma Kiryu according to Sega Sammy CEO Haruki Satomi, as he mentioned during an interview on the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu.

Satomi-san was talking about how he wants to challenge new IPs on all platforms (IE: arcade, mobile, consoles and so forth). After mentioning new IPs for the arcade and mobile markets, he teased that in regards to home consoles, a new title by the Yakuza Studio is already in development.

He did not provide further details, but he mentioned that the fans can look forward to it.

In the meanwhile western fans just received Yakuza 6: The Song of Life yesterday. You can read our review, and grab your copy on Amazon, while Yakuza Kiwami 2 is coming on August 28th. That can also be already pre-ordered on Amazon.

At the moment, we don’t have any news about a western release of the new Yakuza spin-off that has recently been released in Japan, Hokuto Ga Gotoku.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
