Sega teasing ‘surprise Yakuza announcement’ for August 18

Next Yakuza game to be announced?

Sega will announce the results of its “Yakuza Character General Election” at the Alta Vision screen outside Shinjuku Station’s east entrance in Tokyo on August 18 at 17:00 Japan time, the company announced.

That’s not very important, though. What is important—Sega is teasing a “surprise announcement” related to the series, which will be revealed following the results.
