Yakuza series developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has announced a new showcase for next week on September 14.

It doesn't take a wild imagination to theorize what Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio could be set to announce. Over the past month, images have made their way online of an unannounced Yakuza game, originally published as part of Famitsu's tour of the studio's offices in Tokyo.

Just last week, in fact, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio poured more fuel on the speculative fire, revealing that they'd be debuting a new trailer for a project right before Tokyo Game Show, which is slated to begin next week. The developer never announced what project this new trailer would be showcasing, however. It could be that this is the new trailer that will premiere during the RGG Summit next week on September 14. 

However, it's worth remembering that the studio very casually confirmed the existence of a new Yakuza project last year in late 2021, with studio director Masayoshi Yokoyama revealing that the new game would pick up several years after the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon. That sure was one low-key way of confirming a very anticipated new game.
