Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan!, the third entry in the series that's known in the English speaking world as Yakuza, took Sega's modern gangster tale into the past and replaced main character Kazuma Kiryu's cell phone with a messaging system based in part off carrier pigeon.
But Sega has still managed to put together a collaboration for the game involving a cell phone.
A Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan! themed cell phone is now being sold exclusively through Mobile Factory's Coraboruta website. The phone is basically just the Soft Bank Mobile 815T phone with three Ryu ga Gotoku-themed panels and inner sheets included. The internals are also a bit different, with special wallpapers, icons and ring tones built in.
Those wanting to carry Ryu ga Gotoku in their pants can get one of these phones as part of a new Softbank contract for 2,580 yen per month (total 61,920 yen). Those with current Softbank accounts can switch to the Gotoku model for 2,880 yen per month (total 69,120 yen).
Sega will throw in a bonus notebook and strap to those who order the phone, which is limited to just 1,000 units.
