Look, there aren't too many franchises that I'm utterly in love with. The Ryu Ga Gotoku/Yakuza franchise is one of them. The story is fantastic (even with the poor localization in the first game), the characters are believable, the graphics are gorgeous, and the combat is brutally satisfying. Hell, I ran out and imported Ryu Ga Gotoku: Kenzan!
the week it came out. I've pestered Sega for Yakuza news at PAX for last couple years. The guy I talked to this year gave me the usual spiel about not giving up hope, trying to gather a community of fans at Sega's website to support the series etc, etc.
I'd just about given up hope until tonight.
You read that right.
1up doesn't say it's a rumor. It says the game is coming. If this turns out to be untrue, I'll be thoroughly pissed off.
But, as it stands now, the world looks so damn beautiful.
Here's a fun video for you with the game's theme song and some pain.
Who else is happy?
