This is the first correct information we have about Yakuza 8, as it has been confirmed that it will be in development at Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio only in November 2021.
The director of the study Masayoshi Yokoyama confirmed a bit already at the time, saying that the new game would be a continuation of the Like a Dragon story set only a few years later, so it makes sense that the protagonists Kasuga, Adachi e Nanba have appeared in this new movie.
We also know that Yakuza 8 will remain a turn-based RPG, after Like a Dragon switched to the genre after 7 action-based Yakuza games.
Yakuza it has always stood out as a series for the difficult understanding that differentiates it: a product that has existed for years and which is enjoying unprecedented success, especially in Japan.
