Announced at today’s final SEGAFes stream Nagoshi took the stage to introduce the new Ryu Ga Gotoku JDrama “Ryu ga Gotoku: Tamashi no Uta” or “Yakuza: Spirits Song“. The drama will tell the an original story of 3 guys who move from Onomichi to Kamurocho. Weirdly enough the Drama doesn’t star Kiryu!

The Drama can be streamed exclusively through at Geo’s VOD starting November 30 2016 and will be available on other streaming services starting January 11 2017!

I don’t know about you guys but I’m actually interested in seeing how they pull this off without starring Kiryu. Will be interesting to see more characters in that same universe. I just hope they tie in to Yakuza 6 somehow and we see them in the game to! Definitely feels like they nailed the tone.

Also spot the Nagoshi at 16 seconds in the trailer. I wonder if he’ll die in this series like he has in every other one (yes even the movie)
