SEGA's Latest Yakuza Title Will Bring You to Your Knees

Please, please, please bring it overseas
As promised last week, SEGA has announced the latest title in its popular Yakuza series. Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin – or Yakuza Restoration – stars a character named Ryoma Sakamoto, who has a more extravagant barnet than Russell Brand. The title looks like it’s going to be a historical entry, perhaps similar to the PlayStation 3’s 17th century instalment, Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan.
The publisher’s yet to attach platforms to the title, but we’re assuming that the Wii U is off the cards. Earlier in the year, series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi hinted that he was done with the PS3, suggesting that this may be a PlayStation 4 game. Sadly, considering the unfortunate fate of Yakuza 5, you’re probably going to have to plead tirelessly for a Western release.
Regardless, more details will be revealed next week.
