Yakuza Kiwami 3 Isn’t Coming to Tokyo Game Show 2020, Sorry


Despite some promising hints from the official site, Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama confirmed that Yakuza Kiwami 3 would not debut there.

Sometimes hidden nuggets of info can reveal a huge surprise early on — unfortunately this isn’t one of those times. On the official Yakuza Japanese site, there’s a schedule of upcoming events for Ryu Ga Gotoku Online (the Yakuza mobile gacha game) that mentions a “Ryu Ga Gotoku Kiwami 3 themed event” happening in October 2020.

This of course seemed like a possible hint that Sega will announce Yakuza Kiwami 3 soon, such as during the upcoming TGS 2020. However, Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama quickly took to Twitter and denied such claims, stating it was a typo:

A fan then asked “are you gonna surprise announce it at TGS?” and Yokoyama replied with a “no we won’t, sorry”:

Sorry for those waiting patiently for any news about Yakuza Kiwami 3 but unfortunately you’ll have to wait a bit longer. However, we do know that Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the next mainline installment in the franchise, is launching for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 13th.

And thanks to Shacknews we also know that the next mainline Yakuza game will be a launch game for Xbox Series X and S, which means it’ll be releasing three days earlier for those systems. The PS5 version was also confirmed recently but as of now we don’t know anything other than it will come “at a later date.”

And for those in need of some fun content to hide the tears of your hopes and dreams being crushed, check out this cool project from two fans who go by KaroruGans0 and hayaken_kmzw. They posted a live-action recreation of the Kamurocho streets on Twitter back in August. It’s not completely flawless and does also takes some inspiration from the Grand Theft Auto series. That said, it’s pretty awesome to see how well they’ve done with this.

And for those who haven’t played Yakuza Kiwami 2, the title is now available on Xbox Game Pass along with the first three mainline in the series.
