New PS4 Yakuza Title Announced, Features Yakuza Online’s Ichiban Kasuga

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

It has been revealed that Ichiban Kasuga of Ryu Ga Gotoku Online fame is going to be the star of the next PS4 Yakuza title. This new Yakuza game is currently untitled and there’s no word on a release date at this time.

In addition, a new casting call has been put out for actresses to play Kasuga’s love interest. The chosen actress will appear in the game and promotional material, but also receive a 1 million yen prize. Applications can be completed on this website.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ichiban Kasuga, that’ll be because the game he features in is currently Japan-only. Ryu Ga Gotoku Online is a free-to-play Yakuza spin-off that stars both Kiryu Kazama and Ichiban Kasuga. It is currently available in Japan for PC, iOS and Android devices. There is no word on a Western release at this time.

01

The first game in Toshihiro Nagoshi’s hugely successful Yakuza franchise is a fascinating little game because it showcases a lot of familiar elements that will stay with the series all the way to present day. Yakuza is an incredibly accomplished first entry in a series that has simply reiterated on its template instead of taking it in a completely different direction.

“Business Edition” of Yakuza 0 Revealed for North America

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

yakuza0business

Yakuza 0 is launching in the West early next year (Early 2017 for Europe but a firm January 24th 2017 date for the US) and those lucky Americans get a launch-day “Business Edition” of the game which includes a stainless steel business card holder that includes 3 cards based on characters and places in the actual game. As long as you pre-order the game in North America you will receive a Business Edition which means this edition basically takes the place of what is normally labelled a “day one” edition aka the first print run of the game.

You can also check out a new trailer for the game by clicking below. You can also watch the slightly different European version of the trailer (different release date, no mention of the Business Edition) by clicking here.
