SEGA Accidentally Outs Yakuza HD Collection

Back to Kamurocho

It’s a good job Kazuma Kiryu and co are fictional characters, otherwise SEGA would be in big trouble for leaking the Tojo Clan’s plans. An errant listing uncovered by Andriasang appears to hint at the imminent release of a Yakuza HD Collection. The listing notes that PS2 titles Yakuza and Yakuza 2 will be lavished with the...

SEGA Reveals First Yakuza 5 Mini-Games

Crazy taxi

SEGA’s Yakuza series is well known for its enjoyable mini-games. The heart of the franchise might lie with its self-serious narrative and wonderful characters, but part of what makes the series so enjoyable is its insistence on introducing alternative mechanics. Yakuza 5 is something of a reboot, and so it’s unsurprising to see the...

The youngster is a world away from the angry men that typically populate the cast of SEGA’s niche adventure series. How is she going to fight?
