Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios confirmed late last year that work on the next mainline Yakuza game was underway, with the game set several years after the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Ichiban Kasuga returning as protagonist. Since then, other than a brief development update, the developer has been quite about the project.

Now, however, we seem to have gotten our first brief glimpses of it- though not through official channels, interestingly enough. As spotted and reported by Famitsu, MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura recently uploaded a video (which you can check out below) in which he tours RGG Studios.

The video not only showed off-screen images from the game showcasing a number of familiar characters (including Ichiban sporting a new hairstyle), but also featured Sega president Haruki Satomi confirming that the game will feature a new town as well. The aforementioned Asakura will also appear as a character in the game.

Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has previously also confirmed that the next Yakuza game will be another turn-based RPG, similar to Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

The developer is currently also working on multiple unannounced games besides Yakuza. Read more on that through here.
