Looks like a PSP game.New Yakuza Game in the Works
Sega offers first glimpse at "Project K" a few days prior to Yakuza 4's release.
Yakuza 4 is all set for release this week. But just in when you thought we'd be spared for a bit from endless product tie-in announcements, it looks like there's a new Yakuza game in the works.
Famitsu.com reports that a new entry in the series was announced today at a Yakuza 4 press conference in Tokyo. According to the site, the game was referred to as "Project K" and is coming our way from series director Toshihiro Nagoshi.
Sega showed an image movie at the event, which Famitsu.com described in detail. The video started off with that familiar Kamurocho neon entrance sign from past Yakuza games. A young boy, whom the site speculates is the game's main character, is seen walking around the night city in the rain.
In between scenes of Kamurocho's city life and the boy, the following text flashes on the screen:
* The boy knew it
* The graveness of the crimes he continued to commit
* But the boy still doesn't know
* The cruel fate that awaits
* Also, the boy knows
* That fighting is his destiny
The video ends with: "A new challenge for Ryu ga Gotoku starts" ("Ryu ga Gotoku" is the Japanese name for the Yakuza series).
Target platform and release timing were not announced at the event.
(UPDATE 15:54 -- I translated Famitsu's impressions to describe the main character as "young boy." However, based off the images at Gpara.com, "young man" looks like it could be more accurate.)
See Famitsu.com and Gpara.com for some images from the trailer.

This is a PS3 game and was announced as Yakuza 5 Z. Damn you got me so excited for a minute This is one series that i think would work perfectly on PSP i must say.
My apologies Z i guess i was wrong....................Yakuza Project K for PSP
So thats 3 PSP games i must have this year and two from Sega! Good Stuff. Hopefully the Resi PSP game will make that 4!!!!
Well fuck me sideways!!! Take a look at these Diresu!!!!!!!!!
Im guessing these next pics are how they will replace the cutscenes similar to the graphic panels MGS Portable ops and Peacewalker use....
Two things: First is i find it hard to believe a PSP game can look this good. It almost looks as good as Yakuza 3 on PS3. Second is how on earth are they going to fit such a massive game with so much content even edited in half on one single UMD?
PSP2 coming out soon anyone??????????
Oh and this better damn well come out in the west because this is probably the most suitable game that can be put on PSP with zero control problems if you think about it. It might just be the best game released on PSP frankly!!!!
Those graphics do look way to good for PSP gameplay. Maybe there is like an opening cutscene or something?
Especially those city pics. They look amazing!!! It looks like they managed to fit the entire Kamurocho city area into the game
Wow nice. I like the look of the main character. Wonder what family he is from. He kinda looks like Nishiki.I think this should make it stateside cause the localization cost has to be minimal cause it's a psp game. Oh man if they announce both this and 4 for a western release SEGA will officially become my favorite developer/publisher this gen by far.
What the deucecakes?
Ya I wonder also... good calls Acid.
Yakuza looked pretty solid and very large for PS2... but ya this a bit much for PSP is my guess also.

New Trailer (5-Minutes) Must See for Yakuza fans
I rally hate my beloved franchises going to PSP to be honest (MGS, now this).
It doesn't make me want a PSP, Sony, it just pisses me off.
I meant that I'm missing out on franchise entries because I don't have a PSP.
I'm not sure how key this entry will be for the Yakuza series story wise and what-not but even if it wasn't an "important" Yakuza game, I want to play every game in the franchise and it's annoying that I can't if I don't have a PSP (and no, I'm not going to get a PSP).
