Yakuza Empire Announced

Developer RockGame announces Yakuza Empire, a side-scrolling action/management game coming to Steam to put you in heart of the Japanese criminal underworld. You can get a taste of what this holds in the Announcement Trailer and read on for more:
With its worldwide infamy, the Japanese Yakuza is one of the most recognizable institutions in the history of organized crime. But it is much more than that as well. As a strategy/management game, Yakuza Empire offers you the opportunity of virtually experiencing what it's like to dedicate your life, often quite literally, to its cause.

Lead the feared clan as its undisputed oyabun and direct its operations to the best of your abilities. Your revered predecessor was brutally murdered – it's time to restore his honor and spill blood in the name of revenge.
