Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio Head Provides Yakuza 8 Update

Ryu Ga Gotoku studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama gave a little development update on Yakuza 8, as well as details on some of the other things happening at the studio.

We’ve known for a while now that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s next Yakuza game will continue from Like A Dragon and star Ichiban Kasuga once again, but we haven’t seen anything of the project yet and haven’t been given development details so far. During a Nico Nico Chokaigi livestream, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio Head Masayoshi Yokoyama gave fans an update on the upcoming Yakuza, as well as confirmation that more projects are on the way at the studio.

As reported by Twinfinite, Yokoyama confirms that development of the next Yakuza game is progressing well. The writing team is apparently working on the final story beats for the game, while several actors have apparently already started recording their dialogue for the game, implying that development is actually well underway.

Yokoyama wasn’t able to give any kind of release window for the next Yakuza game, but said we can probably expect the first proper details for the game to come out sometime this year, which suggests that 2023 might even be a bit early for the next game. Twinfinite reports that Yokoyama actually said in a previous interview that the next game might not even be titled Yakuza 8, which is sure to be confusing for just about everyone.

The last thing Yokoyama needed to announce is that there are actually several projects currently underway at Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. He couldn’t give any information about them, but the team isn’t just working on the next title in the Yakuza series. While fans were probably hoping for some sort of official announcement for Yakuza 8 from Nico Nico Chokagi, at least we know development is progressing smoothly on the project and we should get more info by the end of the week. year.
