At last night’s Famitsu Awards 2016 (where Yakuza 6 picked up an excellence award from the magazine!) the series director and CCO of SEGA, Toshihiro Nagoshi, took to the stage to confirm the existence of the next title in the Ryu Ga Gotoku series.
Well here’s something no one expected but I’ll be happy to see it happen!
March 16 2017 over on the Bandai Namco blog it was announced that the upcoming season pass DLC will feature characters from franchises outside of the Tekken universe!
Well this came out of nowhere! Alongside the price and launch date announcement for Yakuza Kiwami. SEGA today opened a new website to help get people caught up to speed with the Yakuza series! Gotta say I’m impressed seems like a lot of love and care went in to everything.
Let’s take a look at what’s on offer over at The Yakuza Experience.
Out of nowhere SEGA confirmed today that Yakuza Kiwami would be launching both physically and digitally in North America and Europe August 29, 2017 for the amazingly low price of $29.99/£29.99/€34.99!
It’s already up for preorder on Amazon and not only that all first editions of the game come in an awesome steelbook case!
Hit the jump for the full rundown of features present in Kiwami right from SEGA themselves.
This week’s SEGA-nama live stream Nagoshi brought on the voice actor for Kiryu Kazuma, Takaya Kuroda, to reflect on his work over the years as the Dragon of Dojima.
The entire interview is in Japanese and begins at 31:34!
You can always watch the rest of the video as Nagoshi gets to take a look at other SEGA games coming out soon!
Finally passing certification and moving on to the marketing phase. Nagoshi’s team prepare for launch.
