Ryu ga Gotoku Studio, perhaps better known to western audiences as Team Yakuza, has announced that it will be hosting a new episode of production web series next week, which will feature none other than studio director himself, Masayoshi Yokoyama, who will present fans with a “sneak peek trailer.”

The developer did not offer any further hint as to what the trailer will be giving us a “sneak peek” of, but the rumor mill has been turning for some time — spilling stories that a “Yakuza 8″ is currently in the works at the veteran studio. With Tokyo Game Show kicking off in just a fortnight’s time, now would be the perfect opportunity for a Japanese company to get the hype engine in motion for a brand new release. The stream will also feature a gallery of specially selected fan art reflecting the studio’s games.

The Ryu ga Gotoku Studio TV #12.5 episode will premiere on the developer’s official YouTube channel Thursday, September 8, at 20:00 JST. This is, obviously, an eye-watering 02:00 PT / 05:00 ET, but fret not, as we will be sure to have all of the pertinent details on the new trailer right here on Destuctoid, ready and waiting for you when you eventually roll outta bed and into your snakeskin shoes.
