RGG Studio director - Yakuza 8 set several years after 7; non-Yakuza and Judgment title in the works

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu features an interview with Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio director Masayoshi Yokoyama, who discusses the studio's recent restructures.

The story is too old to be commented.

A new IP! Now that's exciting news. They're a great team but a new IP tends to spawn fresher ideas than existing ones.

I hope they would go to a more narrative driven direction where there are only a handful of sidequests that tie directly to the story, not indirectly. Something like Shenmue, maybe a smaller town or village, with some mystique and blurring the lines of reality and fantasy. Perhaps I'll play Persona 4 for that Inaka experience. One thing I'd like to have from them, is a fully voiced game, there's always so much text in the games. For that, a smaller scale wouldn't be bad.

That being said, I've finished Ryu Ga Gotoku 3, 4, Ishin, and am playing Rei (Zero) now, and they have all been extremely good. I also have 1 and 2 Kiwami, and am interested in playing 5,6,7 and this 8 one later. I can only take one game at a time in this series, and then I need a break, because I play in Japanese and it's really text heavy.
