Kazuma uses a sniper rifle in the upcoming Yakuza game. Huh!?

July 21, 2010

While Goro Majima has been confirmed as a main character in the upcoming Yakuza game, players will be happy to know that Kazuma Kiryu will also make the cut:

Goro Majima was the first character announced for the next PlayStation 3 Yakuza game. But he won’t be the last! Today, Sega announced a second character.

It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, but Kazuma Kiryu, main character of all the previous Yakuza games, will also have a starring role alongside Goro. Kazuma will, like Goro, be playable.


Series director Toshihiro Nagoshi said today of Kazuma’s appearance, “It’s said that if Kiryu doesn’t appear, Yakuza cannot begin. However, when we revealed Majima as the first main character, in addition to the reaction of ‘You can use Majima this time!’ it was widely said that ‘Kiryu is gone!’ and ‘It’s a game exclusively with Majima,’ so we wanted to quickly get out information about Kiryu’s appearance as well. Please wait just a bit more for the next update.”

In initial interviews, Nagoshi had said that the new game, which is still without a final title, will see its true unveiling at September’s Tokyo Game Show.

We’ll see what this game is all about when September rolls on. I’m puzzled at to what exactly it will be like.
