Nagoshi promises 'super update' on Meiji era Yakuza.

The latest update on Yakuza: Ishin is coming September 9.

“The venue for the Olympics will be decided on Sunday,” Yakuza series producer Toshihiro Nagoshi said on a blog post.

Tokyo, Istanbul, and Madrid, are in the running as candidate cities to host the Olympic Games in 2020.

“But, on Monday, we’ll dispatch the super latest information on Yakuza: Ishin.”

Monday is also the date of Sony’s Japanese PlayStation press conference, which will be live streamed with English translations, and is where the domestic release date of PlayStation 4 is expected to be announced.

Nagoshi previously said Yakuza 5 would be the final Yakuza game on PlayStation 3. A platform for Ishin has yet to be announced, leading many to believe it is a PlayStation 4 title. Nagoshi also said a platform announcement would arrive before the Tokyo Game Show in Chiba later this month.

    I’m still going under the theory that this is PS4’s Kenzan! simply because it’s not part of the main series and they want to test the hardware :3

      I think it’s pretty obvious.

      Watch us be wrong. =P

        And it will be a Wii U exclusive. The screenshots we’ve been seeing were from the game running on PC hardware, lol.

            It’s actually a card game for smartphones :|

          LOL I was thinking WiiU. Why keep the platform a secret otherwise?

            Why? It’s a formality, if anything. Companies do it all the time. They can’t OFFICIALLY tell us yet, but they already know the fans have pieced it together and know what it’s coming out on.

            Just look at the screenshots. It’s pretty logical… Unless it’s a PC game @w@
