If an article on Kotaku is to be believed, that’s a yes.

According to a news post on Kotaku regarding whether Yakuza would be coming to the Wii U (of all systems), the PSVita version has been confirmed by Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi;

Elsewhere in the interview, Nagoshi was asked if Yakuza was coming to the PS Vita. The game producer replied affirmatively, once again acknowledging how the series has been born and bred on PlayStation hardware.

Good news for Vita owners and Yakuza fans alike if true, we’ll just have to wait and see!

    Seeing that I’m not dealing with rumors until after E3, I can’t officially comment on this.

    Unofficially I can say that this would be great news if true. Even better if it’s an exclusive Vita addition to the series.

      If anything, it will probably be a port (though hopefully w/ a HD makeover). Still, as someone who never experienced the original I’m pretty excited by this.

      Still–am hoping for more original titles and less ports coming out of E3.

  • Never played it but would be interested to.

    That’d be sweet… I love the series, and even if they’re ports of the HD versions that’s OK, since I missed those (Got into Yakuza with the third)
