Sega teasing ‘surprise’ Yakuza announcement for August 18th

Sega News Adventure Action


It has been revealed that Sega will be announcing the results of their “Yakuza Character General Election” on August 18th outside of Shinjuku Station. While not major news itself, it is what the company will be announcing after the results have been revealed.

The company has said that they will be making a “surprise announcement” for the Yakuza series, but at the moment there has been no indication of what this news could be. Considering this is a Japanese event, it will likely not be news of Yakuza 5 or Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition being localized, but perhaps a sixth Yakuza title or another HD release.

As a big fan of anime and games I’ll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.

  • I personally love the Yakuza series but hope that one day SEGA decide to bring back Shenmue and finish the final chapter off for Shenmue 3.

            It will probably be a poster advertising shenmue 3 as a teaser. πŸ™‚

          • hahha now ur going too far! would be nice to have a mention somewhere in the game and yes a poster would be nice ~ MA

          • Yappoo

            Why not have a crossover in your own universe? that would be so cool.

          • It would be just happy with Shenmue 3 being completed. they are already using the engine in Yakuza .. just repopulate with Shenmue characters and we’re done… everyone is happy and the world will be a better place once again ~MA
