Fans of loud, brash Japanese motorcycle gangs and gangsters can check out the just released Sprint, Yankee Soul mobile game from Square Enix.

The game puts players in the role of a “yankee”, which is Japanese slang for a delinquent. There are various game modes, including a real time battle mode where you’ll race against others to become the Supreme Overlord. This has a slot machine element, with reels rolling along that can affect the race.

Outside of it, there are other mini games including a running game where you can run/drive down a school hallway, avoiding banana peels and bashing anyone who gets in the way. There’s also a fighting mini-game. These two modes let you collect materials to craft and customize your bike.

Players can also join a biker gang, with real time chat amongst members.  Sprint, Yankee Soul is out now on Android, with the iOS version coming soon.

    should’ve made it a beat ‘em up like the yakuza series and put it on consoles.
    I would’ve bought it so hard!

      Ugh, just seeing the term ‘Yankee’ used in this context reminds me too much of the phrase “Yankee, go home!”, complete with political connotations from the Philippines and Latin America (never mind the fact The Philippines was once both a Spanish and an American colony, before World War II).

      …and I’m a Yankee fan. I even heard of the Yankees, before I arrived here…in America, without even realizing they were establishing their dynasty from 1996-2000.

    Is it possible to get this in the States? Is downloading APKs a thing still?

    Oooh, so it’s this one… I. I think this is actually more or less what I hoped for, when I heard it was coming for mobile formats. There’s racing and beating up other thugs… all it needs is a mode were you walk around the town looking for puppies to rescue and kids to teach valuable life lessons and we are freaking set.
