PlayWay Announces New Strategy Game About Japan's Most Feared Gang — YAKUZA EMPIRE

It turns out that Ninja Simulator is not the only big game inspired by Japanese culture developer RockGame is working on, as publisher PlayWay has revealed the Warsaw-based team's next big thing — Yakuza Empire.

In the newly revealed turn-based strategy game, the player will take on the role of a feared clan's leader and direct its shady operations to the best of their abilities. Considering that your ruthless predecessor has been killed, your task will be quite dangerous — but avenging his death will still be a top priority for the oyabun.

According to the Polish studio, the upcoming PC-exclusive production will give you a unique chance to create your very own web of (deadly) shadows, as every member you've successfully recruited will bring something new to the table — but keep in mind that "the team is only as strong as its weakest link."

It's worth remembering that Yakuza Empire is not the only all-new PlayWay-publisher project set in a world ruled by crime groups, as CreativeForge Game's Phantom Doctrine 2: The Cabal was revealed back in July.

To learn more about the vibrant world of the Cowboy Life Simulator crew's take on X-COM — which doesn't have an official release date yet — take a closer look at its action-packed announcement trailer down below:
