Famitsu this week has first details on the newly announced Yakuza: Ishin.
This time, Kazuma Kiryu becomes the historical figure Sakamoto Ryoma, who attempted to overthrow the Shogunate at the end of the Edo Era. His goal is to destroy the swordsman who killed his father and the honored teacher Yoshida Toyo before his eyes. After sleuthing for a year and finding that all riddles begin and end with the Shinsengumi, Ryoma disguises himself as Shinsengumi captain Saito Hajime and heads for this assassin’s group.
The game’s platform is still unannounced. Masayoshi Yokoyama is the producer and scenario writer. The game is set in the cities Tosa and Kyoto.
Thanks, Game Jouhou.
