Next Yakuza / Ryu Ga Gotoku Game Announced – Yakuza: Ishin



Following their “Character General Election” results which were announced in Tokyoearlier today, Sega alongside Studio Yakuza have announced the next installment in the Yakuza / Ryu Ga Gotoku series.

Going by the title of Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin (Yakuza: Ishin / Yakuza: Restoration), we are set to hear more information on this title in this weeks issue of the Weekly Famitsu. Release date, pricing and platform are unknown, however due to poor sales of Yakuza 1&2 HD on the Wii U I think the safest bet would be a Playstation console – perhaps even the Playstation 4.

Sega have released every installment in the Yakuza series up to Yakuza: Dead Souls internationally, meaning we are still left waiting for the next numbered installment Yakuza 5 and the HD collection of 1&2 to hit our store shelves.

Founder of The Otaku's Study. I have been exploring this labyrinth of fandom these last fourteen years, and still nowhere close to the exit yet. Probably searching for a long time to come.


  1. Painful. I mean, we’re still waiting for the western release of the fifth Yakuza title. Stupid Sega West, brought over the terrible Dead Souls spinoff instead, because zombies. And there are too many stupid kids out there who still aren’t sick of that dumb fad. *sigh*

    If Amusement Vision (Ryo Ga Gotoku Studio?) has moved onto the sixth installment, it’s probably not looking good for a localized release of Yakuza 5 then. Lame.
