According to Nagoshi, the team is taking a programmatic approach with the next title so that players can have a more physical experience.
Regarding the battle system, the team aims to reach new innovations.
About the next game in general, they want to offer a broadened form of play.
Don’t expect to see the next Yakuza title on PlayStation 3, though. Nagoshi said he thinks Yakuza 5 will be the last entry in the series part of PlayStation 3’s generation.
But rest assured the studio will continue developing with the the intent to make things the best they an under the circumstances.
Nagoshi hopes to show the next “something” sometime this year.
Thanks, Game Nyarth.
