In a recent Famitsu interview, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio director Masayoshi Yokoyama shared some interesting tidbits about their future. According to Yokoyama, Yakuza 8 (Like a Dragon 2) is set several years after Like a Dragon. Ichiban Kasuga is the returning protagonist since its his story after all. Yokoyama states that the Judgment series is very important to Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio but also want to challenge themselves with new titles. Currently, the studio is working on unannounced games outside of the Yakuza and Judgment franchise. We can’t wait to see what Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announces next (Thanks, Ryokutya2089).
