Yakuza developer announces RGG summit next week

Yakuza developer announce an RGG summit next week, which takes place a day before the Tokyo Game Show 2022 kicks off.

The Tokyo Game Show takes place from September 15th to the 18th. However, before that time arrives, it looks like Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio will be treating us to some Yakuza goodness.

The next Yakuza game has been teased!

Furthermore, back in July this year, the eighth mainline entry in the Yakuza series was very subtly announced. It all happened during a studio tour featuring SEGA president Haruki Satomi and RGG’s Masayoshi Yokoyama.

In a developer diary-style video, off-screen images of Yakuza 8 were very deliberately revealed. The images in question featured Yakuza: Like a Dragon protagonist Ichiban, as well as Yu Nanba and Koichi Adachi.

We’ll likely get a follow-up to Yakuza: Like a Dragon

However, it looks like all will be revealed at the RGG Summit 2022, hopefully with a gameplay trailer and release date. 

We can only speculate on what games will be on show, but it’s likely that we’ll at least get the follow-up to Yakuza: Like a Dragon. However, with a bit of luck, we’ll get news on a new Judgment game too.

When will the RGG Summit take place?

The RGG Summit 2022 will take place on the official SEGA Twitch channel at 10am/UTC/11am UK time/3am PT/7pm JST.

In our review of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, we said: “If you’re a fan of RPGs, crime dramas or just want to try something a bit different, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is definitely worth your time.

If you’re a Yakuza fan and subscribe to PlayStation Plus, then you will currently get access to a total of eight games from the series with bucket loads of Kiryu charm! The next Yakuza game is likely to release for PC, PlayStation as well as Xbox.
