An anonymous liqueur from 4chan said it was a separate game from Sega’s Yakuza series is under development. The lawsuit was accompanied by screenshots that allegedly depicted scenes from the project, one of which also contained a UI element that could be used to debug. It is worth noting that the screenshots are a bit blurry, lacking the clarity that you usually see in a screenshot of a modern game. [Thanks, AltChar!]
Expiring also made some claims about the game’s history. According to them, this entry into Yakuza the series may include a story based on Yakuza Online, although the poster did not say emphatically that this was the case, instead stating that it only “seems”
If the information in the 4chan post is correct, then the game will allow players to control Yakuza character Ryuji Goda, who serves as an antagonist in Yakuza 2 before becoming the protagonist in later recordings in the series. This includes his role as the protagonist in Yakuza Onlinewhich contains a story that depicts earlier chapters of the character’s life. The separation may also contain known locations from Yakuza 5 and Yakuza 6.
The claims concerning the alleged existence of a new one Yakuza the separation has not been confirmed, and 4chan has been a source of misleading rumors in the past.
