yakuza 5 06-30-14-1

We’ve learned that Sega is already developing the next game in the Yakuza series. The confirmation comes via a report by Famitsu, which also says more details are in this week’s Famitsu magazine.

An interview with series boss Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama talked about the game’s development.

It also mentioned how they’re already holding auditions for the hostesses in the game, leading us to believe the game is a return to the modern era, unlike Yakuza: Ishin, which took place in the restoration period of Japan’s history.

The latest game in the series was in fact Yakuza: Ishin, which launched on PS3 and PS4 in Japan on February 22nd.
