If anyone remembers the Kazuma Kiryu themed jewelry released back in July well just announced today is the companion set of official Majima jewelry!
New 7 minute Ryu Ga Gotoku 0 gameplay trailer!
This may replace Yakuza 5 as my favorite in the series..
Hey guys, for those who don’t know - I’m involved in a Kurohyou Ryu ga Gotoku PSP translation patch. We’ve made good progress already, with lots of the translations complete and the game hacking itself is also going well.
Watch this first cutscene from Kurohyou Ryu ga Gotoku! Note that this is how it actually looks in game - the subs were not added on via video editing like my other stuff. This is the real deal. Shout out to Aegehn for hacking the game! This wouldn’t be possible without him.
I’ll post updates when I have them :) Things are looking good for Ryu ga Gotoku fans!
Awesome new for western Yakuza fans who’ve been dying to play any new Yakuza title! Hopefully this won’t be squashed by Sega going forward. As soon as we know more we’ll make sure to keep you updated!
Both Majima and Kiryu have 3 fighting styles in this game.
This is a fighting style Kiryu sort of picked up himself from all his fighting experience. Has all the basic attacks - punching, kicking, throwing, as well as counter attacks. This is basically an older, less refined version of Kiryu’s fighting style from the other games.
Well, this is basically Kiryu’s “HULK SMASH” mode. He can use all kinds of weapons and even throw around enemies as weapons. He unleashes powerful unarmed attacks and powerful grapple attacks. I guess you could say this is like Saejima’s fighting style.
Kiryu’s speed mode. Fast attack combos and swaying ability. This seems like Akiyama’s fighting style, but with more focus on punching than kicking.
Street Fight Master Style
Style used by the young Majima. Features attacks in all directions and some awesome kicking techniques. The basic style for Majima in this game, like Kiryu’s Thug Style.
A fighting style using a baseball bat. Unleashes powerful attacks which break an opponent’s guard. This is Majima’s power style, like Kiryu’s Destruction Style.
Gangnam StyleDancer Style
A breakdancing style of fighting. Fast combo attacks. Also, after a spinning attack you can perform a signature pose and then hit enemies with big damage using your hidden power. This is Majima’s speed style, like Kiryu’s Rush Style.
Everyone pissed at the 30 second clip of gameplay has obviously never sat through a Sega Nagoshi-Raw at 4am for a screenshot of a Yakuza game we’ll never even get in the west.
The pain is real.
Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero teaser trailer!
From last nights Sony Japan Pre TGS conference here’s the first look at the upcoming Yakuza Zero!

Yimbocarimbo’s Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 Guide is back online!
For anyone that’s still itching to play through Yakuza 5; Yimbocarimbo’s amazingly well detailed guide is back online!
Big thanks to Yimbocarimbo for getting this back up and running and not leaving us fans in the dark.
Yakuza Zero site updated with story, locations, young Kiryu and Majima!
With the official reveal of Yakuza Zero we get to see what Kiryu and Majima look like in their 20’s and the graphical boost they’re getting thanks to the PS4!
The locations shown are Kamurocho and Soutenburi. The extra level of detail on the next gen console is truly outstanding.
The story will revolve around young Kazuma Kiryu when he was a debt collector for the Tojo and young Majima as he attempts to run a cabaret club in Soutenburi. Kamurocho redevelopment is just getting underway with proposals to make the area more friendly instead of controlled by gangs and building the millenium tower.
Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero to be set in 1988 star young Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima!
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!
Famitsu teasing Yakuza Zero’s reveal. Looks like we’ll be back in the shoes of Kiryu and maybe Nishiki. I’ll be very interested to see if we get more justification for Nishiki’s actions in Yakuza 1.
I’ll also be very interested to see if we play as Kiryu before he gets his dragon tattoo. Stay tuned as soon as the reveal happens we’ll let you guys know!
Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero announced for PS3 and PS4!
This morning the title of the next Ryu Ga Gotoku game was announced. No news yet on what this one will be about. But we have an awesome logo!
Given that the number is the same as the regular chronological series it’s likely this will be a RGG game set before Yakuza 1 in the timeline and not just a spinoff. But we’ll need to wait and see for full confirmation!
We’re gonna need to wait for TGS 2014 to see more!
"Will we ever get Yakuza 5 in the west?"
