Some off-screen footage appears of what appears to be the next Yakuza
We just take a look at the next Yakuza history. And instead of a story or gameplay trailer, it’s through some off-screen footage of Yakuza 8 on a studio tour.
shared by Famitsu, MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura recently posted a behind-the-scenes tour of Sega’s headquarters. The video is spent chatting with the developers, but what really caught our attention was a moment where a screen shows several like a dragon characters in what appears to be Yakuza 8.

Ichiban, Nanba and Adachi appear in this scene. the Yakuza: like a dragon the protagonist seems to have a different haircut again, though it looks like his hair could be up instead of short.
the return of the dragon
The development team confirmed that the next Yakuza The story would be a continuation of Yakuza: like a dragon, so seeing these characters again makes sense. This was in conjunction with a larger reorganization at Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, in which director Toshihiro Nagoshi left the studio. the Yakuza The creator would later reveal his own studio, Nagoshi Studio, under the NeatEase banner.
As for the following Yakuza play? This is the first glimpse we’ve seen of him. We received confirmation last year that the Yakuza the series would not only continue like a dragon story, but its RPG combat as well. It seems that the action of the fighter will live on with lost trial and other Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio games.
Hopefully this is a sign that we will see more of the next. Yakuza early. Yakuza: like a dragon it was a major departure for the series, with a new core cast and an entirely new battle system. But it was incredibly charming, and I’m quite willing to spend more time with this RPG party of messed up people.
