Sega Officially Announces Yakuza Movie
Toshihiro Nagoshi, one of the most important names of Sega, confirmed that the Yakuza movie will come in TGS 2020. Hollywood-made movies made the audience satiated with the action.
The Yakuza series has long enjoyed great interest from players. Gamers are not only expecting new games from this series, but also want to continue to experience this world in different media environments such as movies.
The announcement expected by the players came on September 27, the last day of TGS 2020. Toshihiro Nagoshi, the last word in Sega’s creativity-related work, officially announced the new Yakuza movie in his statement.
Yakuza movie is coming from Hollywood
Nagoshi stated that detailed explanations of the film will be made in the coming days. Nevertheless, he stated that they can make it great while they are ready and they will not stop working until they are satisfied with the result. The company had previously almost completely revamped the movie Sonic the Hedgehog due to fan feedback.
Nagoshi, who met once again with MC Ayana Tsubaki on the monthly broadcast SegaNama, answers fan questions in the “Ask Nagoshi anything” section at the end of the show. We even learned about his admiration for the Ghost of Tsushima in one of these sessions.
Since TGS 2020 and broadcast are in the same period, people said that a new Yakuza game will be announced in this broadcast. Tsubaki announced that this was not the case. It seems that the new addition to the series will be a movie.
New Yakuza game does not appear on the horizon
Since the first day of the event, Tsubaki has been saying that there will be no new Yakuza games. Later, Masayoshi Yokoyama, the producer of the Yakuza series, also confirmed that no new game will be announced. However, he also said that more than one project is being developed for the 15th year of the series.
Coming back to the Yakuza games, we know that the newest game in the series is already hitting PlayStation 4 in January. The game, which will be sold as Yakuza to the West: Like a Dragon, will be playable on PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X on November 10. There will be a PS5 version of the game in the future.
