New Yakuza Game Set For PlayStation Platforms

Supervisor Toshihiro Nagoshi and Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama of the Yakuza series have confirmed that the next game in the series is headed to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Speaking to Famitsu magazine this week, the duo confirmed that the game will not be a spin-off, but they also stopped short of announcing whether it will be a fresh installment or not, and did not reveal the release date either. Interestingly, Nagoshi and Yokoyama also made a mention of their target audience, stating that they’re aiming for the game to be well-received by the male audience.

The new Yakuza game will feature urban environments and the developers are currently holding auditions to select people who will play the in-game role of city dwellers.
