It would be a DreamMatch fighter which allows everyone who's been a fighter big and small to have one big rumble to show who truly is the strongest in the series. Backgrounds include not only locations around Kamurocho and Sotenbori, but also include Millenium Tower, Tojo Headquarters and Onomichi. It would be a TimeCrash as well which allows past versions of characters to see their own futures leading to both IHatePastMe and FutureMeScaresMe.

Addendum: It would also be a way to have the cast of Yakuza crossover with Judgment and see how the Dragon of Dojima deals with Yagami and vice versa.

It would not be the first time Film/JohnWick has shown up in [[VideoGame/Payday2 video games]], and he'd definitely fit into a place like Kamurocho trying to get away after the events of Chapter 2. He's already an omniglot with English, Russian, Italian and American Sign Language, so what's to say he doesn't know Japanese? He could also take in the series tradition of battle strips, showing off his tattoos.

* Cop alternate universe: Instead of having gone into the Yakuza, Kiryu was an honest cop who’s framed for Dojima’s murder for example.


Even though he's the Sixth Chairman of the Tojo Clan, he tends to take quite a couple losses despite his immense power. Whether it's in Yakuza 7 or even 8, he finally gets to take in the sights and sounds of Kamurocho the way Kiryu has over the years.

Ever since Fist of the North Star got a game in Hokuto Ga Gotoku and there was also Yakuza: Dead Souls which involved the cast in a zombie apocalypse scene, what other ways can the series go?

In ''{{VideoGame/Persona 5}}'', you can kill time by watching a film called ''Like A Dragon'' (what the ''Yakuza'' games and movie are called in Japan, due to the yakuza being a bit hush-hush over there), while in ''Yakuza Kiwami'', there's a porno film Kiryu can request called "Midnight Channel 4". While the "midnight channel" is an UrbanLegend outside of the ''Persona'' series, the fact that it's specifically a "4", and SEGA owning both franchises makes one wonder...
