With Kiryu's story established and Kasuga's arc boosting Like a Dragon's sales, Ryu Ga Gotoku is already planning its next steps. For the future of the franchise, the introductory saga Yakuza Kiwami should return in a third game — but it won't be the studio's next new feature.

During O last episode of “Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio TV”, director Masayoshi Yokoyama commented that he definitely intends to develop the remake of Yakuza 3 at “some point”. However, the focus would be on the new game, which will begin testing possible names for the cast soon.

But I'm just going to say that I think we're going to do a Kiwami 3 at some point. I think we will definitely do that sooner or later.

New Yakuza remains a mystery

It's not yet clear what the next Like a Dragon story will be. While Infinite Wealth arrived earlier this year, The Man Who Erased His Name was its predecessor story. So, bringing some older characters back could be an interesting departure for Ryu Ga Gotoku.

So far, Yakuza Kiwami only includes the first two games in the franchise. From the third to the sixth, there are only remasters for the previous generation of consoles and PC.
