Ryu ga Gotoku, hailed by gamers who've already gotten to experience it in Japan as what Shenmue should've been, is now slated for release as "Yakuza" in both the US and Europe later this year. Like Shenmue, Yakuza features a free-form mix of exploration with complex fighting action. You'll be able to openly indulge in Tokyo's underground nightlife as you control Kiryu Kazama on a quest to discover the mystery behind a girl named Haruka and 10 billion missing yen.

Here's hoping for some subtitles!
