Well, they had their live show and I'm pretty happy with it. Nagoshi came out on his own without a 'professional' MC and did pretty well, though he ended up overrunning a bit. Three announcements!
Ryu ga Gotoku Kiwami 2
Remake of RGG2. Sotenbori looked great, and looking forward to full Kamurocho. Glad to see Susumu Terajima back in a RGG game, too. There's going to be a new side story with playable Majima which talks about his construction career and reintroduces characters from Zero.
Shin Ryu ga Gotoku
New game, new hero - Ichiban Kasuga. Played by Kazuhiro Nakaya, who was Nishikiyama in the first game. Looks like there's more of a backstory planned out for him. Not many details but I'm looking forward to hopefully a clean break from Kiryu's story.
Ryu ga Gotoku Online
Smartphone/browser game. The browser bit is worrying and sounds like it might be more management than action. Sega's mobile games have been a bit of a mixed bag; I wonder if this is Nagoshi's attempt to one-up his old AM2 buddies with a more successful game than Soul Reverse Zero.
Hokuto ga Gotoku
This looks like it's going to be great. Fist of the North Star, with RGG series actors, in an all new story. Kenshiro is now a bartender and baseball bat enthusiast. The only thing I'm actually worried about is the violence - if they go for a Z rating then I'll have to import a physical copy as Sony won't sell it to me on PSN!
Overall, it looks like a return to form. Hopefully they've learned their lessons from earlier games and not gotten too starstruck with their celebrity cameos; certainly in Kiwami 2 they've kept it to a much lower level. And it's coming out while I'm in Japan so I'll have to think about the limited edition (including a nice looking PS4 slim!)
