The Yakuza series is getting a live-action drama series in Japan, and Sega announced during the Sega Fes 2016 that it’ll begin airing on November 30, 2016 via GEO Channel. Here’s a trailer for the new show.
The title of the drama is Yakuza: Poetry of Soul, and it might sound like Yakuza 6’s title, but it’s actually a live-action drama with a completely new original story based around thugs of Kamurocho who look up to the legendary Kazuma Kiryu.
The live-action show is being directed by Kan Eguchi, and will feature music by Shonan no Kaze. According to Eguchi, Kazuma Kiryo won’t appear in the movie, but will be mentioned by name.
