Sega Heroes seems to be teasing Yakuza's Kazuma Kiryu


Don't you... step on my snakeskin shoes

Sega's mobile puzzler Sega Heroes might be getting a serious dose of style real soon, as it appears that Kazuma Kiryu, The Dragon of Dojima himself, is apparently headed to the crossover Match-3 game at some point in the near future.

The tease comes via the Sega Heroes Twitter, which posted a short clip of the Yakuza protagonist being shocked out of his sleep, exclaiming a startled "Nani!?" while showing off his iconic back ink. Yakuza as a franchise was recently featured in a player's survey, asking fans which classic Sega stars should make the leap to the mobile title, so it's all looking pretty snug.

Should he join the roster, Kazuma would be rubbing shoulders with such brand alumni as Virtua Fighter's Sarah Bryant, Streets of Rage vigilantes Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding, Golden Axe's Tyrus Flare and Gillus Thunderhead, Super Monkey Ball's AiAi and, of course, Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sega Heroes is available now on iOS and Android devices.
