Last year, a new game in the Yakuza series was released to critical and fan acclaim, and quickly shot to success for publisher Sega. Recently, the developers of the series announced a studio restructure as major developers from Ryu Ga Gotoku have announced their official departures, but not before confirming a sequel is in the works.

It's hardly a surprise a sequel to Yakuza: Like A Dragon is in development as the franchise is currently in the best position it's ever been in terms of success and popularity. Either way, it's good to hear that even though the legendary studio is losing some of its biggest contributors, it will still carry on the story.

Yakuza series creator and Sega Creative Director, Toshihiro Nagoshi, as well as Daisuke Sato, Head of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, have announced their departures. Masayoshi Yokoyama will be taking over the role of Director and Executive Producer at Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, and confirmed the Yakuza sequel in a farewell note to both Nagoshi and Sato:

Ryu Ga Gotoku’s predecessors have passed down their beliefs and know-how to each and every staff member,"  Yokoyama said. "You can witness it in the recently released Lost Judgment and will see it in the upcoming sequel to Yakuza: Like a Dragon which will continue Ichiban Kasuga’s story.

at first i disliked yakuza like a dragon because there were like 20-30 minutes cut scene's which was boring to me and then i started getting into the game and i like it. The difficult part is that around lvl 24-30 you need to level up your characters because as going further into the story and if youre not ready with items that gives u MP and HP you'll be in big trouble. Also the thing i dislike about this game is that some times there's rarely any save options so instead to save and leave 10m into the part of the game you need to need to play 30m-1h in order to complete it... which is pretty annoying.
