Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jul 122019

We’ve slowly been getting details about Shin Yakuza, which will star a new protagonist named Ichiban Kasuga, but while we thought news was coming on Wednesday, we’ll have to wait a little longer.

Wednesday’s announcement turned out to be just the reveal of the actress who won the audition for the role of co-star, with details about the game now set for August 29.

(We knew Wednesday’s news would be the audition results, but the original announcement said new information would be shared as well.)

Right now, we still know very little about Shin Yakuza, but back in May, the director said the story was complete.

There have also been various hints that it will feel different from past Yakuza titles, but no one really knows what that means yet.

Ichiban is also a character in the Yakuza mobile game, which is currently exclusive to Japan.

Of course, I have a long way to go before I’m ready for the next Yakuza game. I’m playing Judgment now, but I still have Kiwami 2, 3-5 (here’s hoping for localization news about the remasters) and 6 to play. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to seeing what August 29’s announcement brings!
