First Look: Big Headed Yakuza

Mobile Yakuza game to feature story set between Yakuza 2 and 3.


Yakuza's mobile version looks juuuuuuuust a bit different from its console big brothers.

Yakuza Mobile For GREE will hit the popular GREE service this Winter. Sega began pre-registration for the game today.

Yakuza Mobile has players team up to recover Kamurocho from an enemy that has overtaken it. You can read a full summary of the game's basics in this story, which we posted yesterday.

While the social format may make you think Yakuza Mobile targets new players, there's quite a bit for long time Yakuza fans as well. In an interview with Famitsu this week, Yakuza series chief producer Masayoshi Kikuchi and Yakuza Mobile producer Masamitsu Shiino revealed that Yakuza Mobile will have an original story that's set between Yakuza 2 and Yakuza 3. Series scenario head Masayoshi Yokoyama is working on this. The game will see appearances by characters from the main line of Yakuza including, according to Shiino, characters who've died.
