"This is what we think of the West"

SEGA may not be very good at anything else these days, but it sure knows how to pump out new Yakuza titles in Japan. Despite historical spin-off Yakuza Ishin launching less than six months ago, the publisher is now preparing for the announcement of a new franchise foray for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 – and you’ll be able to beg for a localisation from 24th August.

Unsurprisingly, not a whole lot is known about the title just yet, but it will apparently feature bustling urban environments, suggesting that it will be a direct sequel to Yakuza 5, rather than some sort of side story. The former platform holder recently held a competition, allowing fans to get their faces in the game. Considering that these shores haven’t seen an entry in this series for over two years now, we’re tempering our anticipation for this reveal.
