As promised, SEGA has announced that the next entry in its popular Japanese gangster series will be named Yakuza Zero: Chikai no Basho – or, Yakuza Zero: The Place of Oath. The game – which is due out on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 like its predecessor Yakuza: Ishin – was announced as part of a live stream, in which several competition winners were also unveiled. They’ll all make cameo appearances in the title.

Unfortunately, very little was said about the escapade itself, although considering the name, we’re expecting it to be a prequel of some sort, presumably starring a much younger Kazuma Kiryu. More will be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show, with the release almost certain to make an appearance during Sony’s big pre-convention press conference next month.
