Based on a countdown message on Sega Japan's official Yakuza website, IGN speculates that Toshihiro Nagoshi will announce a new Yakuza game for PS3 on September 14 at the Tokyo Game Show.
Yakuza on PS2 was a good game. Awesome production values and if they can upgrade the gameplay it will become a classic.
Yakuza was a very good game. Its the closest we will get to a shemune sequel. Not to mention the main character kazuya was one of the coolest characters on the ps2.
If this is true then this great news for PS3 owners, the first YAKUZA was so good I can't wait to see this new game. And if its not a new YAKUZA game then its whatever, I think TGS is going to be really big for SONY(they took E3 and GC and now they're taking TGS).
Whatever game Nagoshi had in mind at thne Premier event, he referred to it as his "biggest production since having started work on consumer games"
just port the Yakuza 2 here already...
They should scrap Yakuza for PS3 and make Shenmue III.
just make shenmue 3 with dreamcast graphics and we will buy it for focks sake sega why do you play with are emotions
I agree. In fact, I've boycotted every Sega product since the lack of Shenmue III. I was also appalled at the fact that the quality of their games have taken a nosedive and have relied on Sonic the Hedgehog way too much.
Also I was dissapointed that Yu Suzuki was not the director of Virtua Fighter 5. Although it was still a fantastic game, it lets fans know what Sega's opinion on Suzuki-san these days.
I would defiantly love to see a sequel on the PS3, that would be the ish.
...Yakuza 2 that is. I dunno abt the US, but Europe hasnt even got the sequel yet, so the announcement of a 3rd could be awkward. Still, I hope they do announce Yakuza for the PS3, because its good to see more and more awesome PS2 games made that transition to current-gen.
