Sega confirms Yakuza sequel

SEGA has launched a new website which confirms that a sequel to Yakuza will be released in Japan this year.

Ryu ga Gotoku or Yakuza to Western gamers, has alrready been out in Japan for quite some time but the game hasn’t made it to European shores just yet (scheduled for September 15). The sequel is due out this December. You can find more information over on the new website.

Assuming the first title does reasonable business in North America and Europe there’s no reason why we won’t see the sequel over here sometime in 2007.
