What is in store for Sega’s beloved crime saga?

Yakuza 6 finishes series protagonist Kiryu’s story, but the Yakuza series will continue nonetheless. This is something Sega has confirmed multiple times by now, actually- and now, next month, we may actually get to see what’s in store for the future of the Yakuza franchise.

The Yakuza development studio has announced that it will have a special event on August 26th at UDX Akihabara, where it will announce a brand new game. While it doesn’t have to be a new Yakuza game (they could well decide they want to try their hand at something new, after all), previous teases indicate that a new Yakuza game announcement is indeed coming.

A PS4 version of whatever the new game is is guaranteed- a Switch version may also be a possibility, given that Sega and the Yakuza studio have spoken about their desire to bring the series over to Nintendo’s platform. A PC version may also be in the mix, since Sega has discussed the possibility of moving Yakuza over to PC before. Whatever it is, we will keep you posted.

    There was also talk of a remake of 2 and ports of 3-5 over to PS4 so maybe we could see something like that?

    First of all – the Dev’s haven’t talked about it coming to PC – they have always said that Yakuza is going to remain a Playstation Franchise and not come to PC or other formats (just like the Persona Devs regarding the numbered titles) – second, Yakuza did once jit Nintendo, 1 and 2 HD remasters came out in Japan on the Wii U – it sold about 3000 copies and since then they announce they wouldn’t take that risk again as they know the playerbase is on Sony’s platform.

    People who want to play Yakuza know that they need to buy a playstation and they’ll be all set.

    Personally I can see a 2 remake or PS2 classic being released and a 3, 4 and 5 remaster while they either work on 7 or start a new story with new characters in the same universe but a new city.

    I would also like them to release the PS4 Japan only title in English – I have it in Japanese and it’s really good, just tricky to get into if you don’t understand Japanese.
