Next Yakuza Title Announced for Japan


There is a new Yakuza title in development for PS3. Apparently, the previous Yakuza title, “Kenzan”, was a spin-off from the main series, and was not the official Yakuza 3 as previously believed.

If you are confused, here is a quick overview:

Game Title Console Japan Release USA + Europe Release

Yakuza 2 PS2 Dec 2006 Sep 2008
Yakuza: Kenzan PS3 Mar 2008 Unknown
Yakuza 3 PS3 Unkown Unknown

Here’s a pic from PS3 Yakuza Kenzan featuring a character played by the famous model Yinling of Joytoy

    They’d better still release Kenzan to the West!

    I’m eagerly anticipating Kenzan as well. What is taking them so long? It can’t be that hard to subtitle the game? I don’t want voice overs anyway!
