Yakuza 8, reveal imminent? Announced an event on the past, present and future of the series

The reveal of Yakuza 8 could be imminent: the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has announced an event that will take place on April 29 and where they will discuss the past, present and future of the SEGA series.

We know that the team is working on many unannounced games, in addition to Yakuza 8, so we’re really curious to see what will be presented on the virtual stage of the Yakuza Super Talk Stage Event, streamed on Niconico.

One thing is certain: to do the honors of the house will not find the familiar face of Toshihiro Nagoshi, who left SEGA along with Daisuke Sato last August to begin a new adventure in NetEase, but that of the new director Masayoshi Yokoyama.

The hope is also to see if and how the collaboration between the studio and Takuya Kimura, the actor who plays Takayuki Yagami in the Judgment series (review) will continue.

In fact, you may recall that there have been problems between the two parties related to the agency that handles Kimura’s image, and we don’t know if they have been resolved or not.
