Yay, Shun Akiyama is in this one.

Also, Haruka, well that should be interesting.

with Kiryu, what about the orphanage?

what about the orphanage? Good question. All we know so far is that Kazuma is now a taxi driver and Haruka grew up to become an idol.

didn't the ending of Y4 said that he couldn't do both full time and would have to choose one day ?
Meaning that he managed to reunite the tojo clan and give guidance ??

Also If hakura is not in the orphenage either, then it either closed or is managed by someone they trust both ...

"Development on this new Yakuza is at 70%. A PS3 release is planned for December."

So happy I almost want to cry. If it comes out this year, a North American release is almost guaranteed for late next year!

Indeed, can't wait to see what they've done with the extra development time for this next true chapter in the story. It'd be great if they bucked the trend for once and launched it worldwide simultaneously.

I really, really hope they've reworked the basic environment engine though - I'm so sick of those lifeless environments with zero interaction or genuine feeling that you are actually there. It's all so PS2.

Haruka is all grown up.

Heh heh, oh right! *Nods head like Quagmire*
