On December 8, 2005, the primary Yakuza sport launched for the PS2 in Japan. That means the sequence’ 15th anniversary is approaching soon- and to commemorate that event, on that precise date, developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio will probably be internet hosting a livestream celebration occasion.
As the developer introduced on Twitter, the livestream will probably be broadcast on December 8, a bit over two weeks from now. The occasion could have in attendance Takaya Kuroda (the voice of longtime sequence protagonist Kazuma Kiryu) and Kazuhiro Nakaya (the voice of Akira Nishikiyama).
Notably, not solely will the livestream be a celebration of the sequence’ historical past, it would additionally function bulletins of “future developments”. That’s fairly obscure wording, and open to interpretation, however Yakuza followers will probably be hoping that we’ll be listening to one thing a couple of new sport on the occasion.
