Yakuza sequel, movie
With the original Yakuza (a.k.a. Ryu ga Gotoku) arriving Stateside just next week, Japan has learned they'll be receiving a PS2 sequel to the crime game on December 7th. The new one will expand its story to include the city of Osaka. Some good news for fans of Japanese cinema is that Takashi Miike will be helming a movie adaptation of the first game. Miike is famous for several underworld-themed movies, notably Dead or Alive and Ichi the Killer. You can watch his promotional short for the first game here.
