A couple of screenshots and some details of the new game in the Yakuza series have surfaced on the 4chan imageboard. An anonymous user revealed that the title will be a spin-off based on the storyline of Yakuza Online, with Ryuuji of the Year as the main character.
In addition, the user said that the game will have locations from Yakuza 5 and 6. However, this information should be taken with a high degree of skepticism – this is 4chan. In addition, the screenshots are of very dubious quality, but these may be very early images without effects.
The head and producer of the Yakuza series, Toshihiro Nagoshi, previously said that a new game in the series will be announced later this year. This is likely to happen in the very near future. The latest game in the series, Like a Dragon, was released in Japan in January 2020 and on November 10 of the same year in other countries.
