Yakuza 7 PC Listing Appears on Steam

We don't have a Yakuza 7 release date yet, but new information points to Yakuza 7 heading to PC at some point in the future.

The Yakuza 7 U.S. release date remains a mystery for now, but a new listing on Steam's backend suggests we'll be seeing a Yakuza 7 PC version at some point when it does launch.

The news comes from Gematsu, who first spotted the listing on SteamDB.

The listing for Yakuza 7, officially called Yakuza: Like a Dragon, appeared an hour prior to the time of writing, complete with a link to the game's Steam page. Since there's no actual announcement yet, that link naturally just goes to the Steam homepage.

But it's highly likely all this means we'll be getting a proper Yakuza 7 announcement in the relatively near future. These backend listings often coincide with announcements planned for a few months out, like what we saw with the Resident Evil 3 remake and March's PSN leak for Star Wars: Project Maverick.

Yakuza 7 is a departure for the series. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life wrapped up protagonist Kazuma Kiryu's story, and the next entry centers on down-and-out Ichiban Kasuga. There's more mayhem and mini-games than ever, and in another first for the series, Yakuza 7's combat is turn-based.

We're pretty big Yakuza fans, so we're hoping there's more news on the way, maybe even as part of the Summer Game Fest.

Meanwhile, you can check out the backend listing information on SteamDB and the original story on Gematsu. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Yakuza 7 and Yakuza 7 PC news as it busts through.
