the sequel to Like a Dragon confirmed by SEGA

Air of changes for the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, after Toshihiro Nagoshi has officially left SEGA: the symbolic man of the studio who gave birth to the Yakuza and Judgment series moves towards new shores, while leaving everything in the hands of a passionate group and very close-knit.

And the future is already well defined, as confirmed in a long message from its new key members aimed at celebrating the tenth anniversary of the birth of the studio under SEGA: after the market debut of the popular Lost Judgment, the developers are now completely immersed in the development of the eighth chapter of Yakuza, which will continue the story of the new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga.

This is confirmed by Masayoshi Yokoyama, director and executive producer of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, who in a passage of his message to fans states that “our predecessors have transmitted their knowledge and motivations to each member of the staff, you can see it in Lost Judgment recently released and in the sequel to Yakuza Like a Dragon which will continue the story of Ichiban “. In truth, Nagoshi himself in recent months had already talked about the next title of the main series, with Yakuza 8 which will maintain the turn-based structure already seen in the seventh episode. However, this is further confirmation not only that Yakuza 8 exists, but that it will most likely be the next title in Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.

At this point all that remains is to wait for the official announcement complete with a trailer and, perhaps, a release date already for 2022.
