We're big fans of Sega's super fun Yakuza franchise, which is why we hope this is true.
Originally, we had heard Yakuza: Of the End would be the last title in the series. It features a definite gameplay twist, in that this time, we'll have the option of firearms (hand-to-hand was always the staple).
But now, according to Just Push Start , Sega is apparently working on Yakuza 5 , and it'll be released next year. We assume they're referring to a Japanese date, but who knows? They also say to expect a sequel to Black Panther , the solid PSP title.
If they are working on a fifth Yakuza , we're sort of hoping that they return to the standard formula. But then again, what do we know? We haven't played Of the End yet…could be amazing.
