Yakuza 3 Remake

To no one's surprise, work is already underway on the next Like a Dragon game, with developer RGG Studio announcing that it's in the process of hosting character auditions. The team goes on to confirm that the next title is not Kiwami 3 — a remake of Yakuza 3, which originally released for the PS3 all the way back in 2009.

However, Kiwami 3 is happening at some point, according to series director Masayoshi Yokoyama. "I’m just going to say, I think we’ll do a Kiwami 3 at some point. I think we’ll definitely do it sooner or later," he commented, during RGG Studio's most recent video.

Yakuza 3 was a great game back in the day — and it likely introduced a lot of people to the franchise — but the property has come a long way since, and much of it feels incredibly old and clunky by today's standards. We're well up for a full, Kiwami 2-style remake.
