As always happens; the latest issue of Famitsu leaked a few details about the new Yakuza title:
- RGG Zero is set in 1988 and features a darker more Yakuza run Kamurocho and the fictional Osaka district of Soutenburi.
- Starring 20 year old Kazuma Kiryu during the time he was a debt collector for the Tojo Clan.
- Also starring Goro Majima as a 24 year old when he was building the most popular cabaret club in Soutenburi.
- Many characters will have their origins explained and appear in this game
- Events of the story will lead right up to Yakuza 1!
Definitely has me excited! Hopefully we’ll see more at the official reveal on the 28th!
New Yakuza (Ryu Ga Gotoku) game in the works according to Famitsu!
From this weeks upcoming Famitsu magazine during an interview with series supervisor Nagoshi-san and series producer Yokoyama-san they discussed the next Ryu Ga Gotoku game and auditions for the upcoming hostesses.
No other details have leaked yet but as soon as they do we’ll update with more info. No word if it will be Yakuza 6 or another spin off like Ishin but I would wager it will be a continuation of the main series.
For those of you waiting to grab the Ishin Demo for PS4 (or get the downloadable version of the full game) they are now live on the Japanese PSN!
The downloadable version of Ishin on PS3 or PS4 is ¥8,600 ($80 USD!)
Grab the demo through the PSN store on the PS4 or click here to visit the PSN store on PC.
Happy New Year Yakuza Fans!
Thanks for an amazing time in 2013 and I look forward to what 2014 brings!
I know it’s been tough this year with no word on Yakuza 5 localization and polls/campaigns that are overlooked by Sega, but don’t ever lose hope. Yakuza 2 was released over 500 days after it came out in Japan. We’re still quite a ways off from the end of the road for the series in the west.
To celebrate, here’s a wallpaper I made just for you guys:
If you want to show off your Yakuza love you can grab this on a shirt or poster over here:
Happy New Year every one!

Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin with Russian fansubs!

New Ishin trailer.
(If anyone is wondering, “Miboro” is the predecessor group of the Shinsengumi. Actually called the “Miburoshigumi”, but were referred to as “Miboro” because of the way they dressed - in tattered clothes)
The latest Ishin trailer with english subs! Thanks KHHSubs!
Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin will be released alongside a companion app for the Playstation Vita! The reason for the app and not just regular crossplay is to allow you to take Ishin on the go and integrate with both the Vita and PS3 versions of the game!
You will be able to bring your save between devices to import levels, money, items and farming!
Navigating the App:
Once loading the app and importing your save simply touch the icons on screen to navigate. Left to right they are Battle Dungeon, Another Life and Mini Game Parlour!
What does the app do? Glad you asked:
Enter an endless battle dungeon and collect corps cards to expand your army in the main game and resources to upgrade your weapons with a blacksmithing mini game! This is Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin on the go and since it’s a free app anyone with a Japanese PSN account and a Vita can grab it and try it out!
Manage your garden, go fishing or cook. Take what you make and import it back into your main game! Grown and cooked food you’ve made yourself will give you power ups in game so it’s a good resource to keep on hand!
Mini Game Parlour:
Play on the go and bring your winnings back with you! Here’s some of the games you can play Mahjong, Shogi, Hanafuda and Poker! Keep those ryo flowing in!
To view more screenshots check out the official site. This app is free so if you’re interested in Ishin and have a Vita make sure you pick it up!
