It looks as though SEGA could be planning to announce a new Yakuza game at TGS 2015 next week.


An image posted to the Yakuza web portal lists a September 15 date, which as Gematsu points out is the same day as the Sony Press Conference.

This year is also the franchise’s 10th anniversary. The first title was launched back in 2005.

It could be a special edition, or a new game entirely as hinted at by Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi in August.

“We’ll announce [a new title] at Tokyo Game Show, and it’ll be a good one,” he said. “And I believe that Sega’s live showing at Tokyo Game Show will be the most exciting one we’ve seen in a while.”

We’ll find out next week.

Yakuza 5 will launch in Europe and North America later this year.
