The team behind the Yakuza series is certainly keeping itself busy these days, with what seems like an endless stream of releases in the franchise, as well as the upcoming Western launch of Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. It seems it won't be taking a break anytime soon, however, as its latest game is to be announced next month.
The head honcho of the Yakuza games, Toshihiro Nagoshi, stated on a SEGA stream earlier today that the team's new game will be announced in September, and most interestingly, it'll be a brand new IP. Reportedly, the game has been in the works for three years, though it's not clear how far along in development it currently is. Whatever this new title turns out to be, we'll get our first look during SEGA's Tokyo Game Show presentation.
What do you think this new game could be? Are you excited to see what Yakuza Studio has been cooking up behind the scenes? Take a wild guess what it's up to in the comments below.
Big Bo: The Game.
It'll be called Gangsta, an action RPG with a heavy emphasis on cutscenes, melee combat, and minigames. It'll have seven mainline entries and the West won't get most of them until years later when SEGA suddenly realises that a world exists outside of Japan.
I wonder if this is unconnected to the reported "Shin Yakuza" project that was rumoured?
resonance of fate 2.hardest rpg ever.but extremely addicted.amazing graphics also.word up son
@ShogunRok Will they eventually release on a bi-yearly schedule in order to catch up?
I’m curious to know what it is. Sega has been killing it as of late.
@get2sammyb Yes and we'll be forced to review four Gangsta games in the space of 18 months.
Can we also get a Binary Domain sequel?
@adf86 Probably unconnected, because Shin Yakuza is still Yakuza.
A Japanese battle royale game.
@Th3solution yeah, an actual battle royal game based on the movie so they can reuse the Takeshi Kitano model from Yakuza 6 😂
Perhaps a narrative slice of life drama, where fists aren't the solution to most of life's problems. As long as they continue to write compelling characters they could do anything really.
i wonder if it will be another Anime based title like Fist of the North Star was, there are many more animes that would fit it's game play
or of course being SEGA it could be an older SEGA property after all we have Streets of Rage 4 coming (actually the Yakuza game engine would make a good Streets of Rage game i reckon) so it's not impossible to think they might revive other old series like Golden Axe
I'm hoping and praying by new IP they mean a proper JoJo game .
I'd kill for a "Berserk" game in this engine ...
@FullbringIchigo A story based Death Note game would be amazing. I know it won't happen, but that would be cool.
Here's my official guess: you play as a single mom who lost her job and therefore has to make a living off of karaoke other odd things and have to confront and beat up boys who hit on your daughter while providing a living as well. I guarantee this will be the new game.
Hunter X Hunter would be absolutely perfect with the Dragon Engine.
What could it be, what could it be?
An official Bold & The Beautiful game
