New Yakuza game announced

Yakuza 4 is all set to release in Japan this Thursday, March 18. Although, there’s already a new Yakuza game in the works, teased as “Project K”.

Yakuza series director Toshihiro Nagoshi announced the game at a Yakuza 4 press conference earlier this morning.

The company showed off a teaser trailer for “Project K”, which displayed a young man walking around the city at night during the rain. The Kamurocho entrance sign seen in past Yakuza games can be seen in the clip, as well.

During the whole scene, the following text flash on the screen:

The video ends with the text: “A new challenge for Yakuza starts.”

No platforms have been announced, but given the series’ complete past on PlayStation, I think it’s safe to say it’ll be a PlayStation 3 title.

Famitsu has three small shots from the teaser, if you want to check them out.

Thanks, Andriasang.
