Ryū Ga Gotoku Kenzan!

Ryū ga Gotoku Kenzan! is a spin-off game in the Yakuza series. The game was developed and published by Sega for PlayStation 3. It was first unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show 2007 and first released in 2008.

Because it is the third installment in the Yakuza series it was often referred by the media Yakuza 3, which is Yakuza 2's actual sequel released one year after Kenzan!.

The Japanese version was released on March 6, 2008 in both Japan and South East Asia, while Sony published it in South Korea on March 25, 2008 with a subtitled script book. In late December 2009, commenting the opportunity of a western release, Sega Australia managing director Darren Macbeth said "there is nothing in the plan at this stage for Yakuza Kenzan. Right now we are focusing on the release of Yakuza 3. The feedback we get from this release will help us in making future decisions".

Ryū Ga Gotoku Kenzan! Plot

After being defeated by the Tokugawa clan at the historical Battle of Sekigahara which took place on October 20, 1600, Miyamoto Musashi retired from his great swordsman life to become a modest yojimbo (bodyguard) in Gion (祇園), Kyoto.

Five years after the battle, a little girl named Haruka comes to Gion seeking a local hitman known as Kazumanosuke Kiryu which is actually Miyamoto's new identity. After eventually finding Kiryū, Haruka asks for him to assassinate an impostor pretending to be Miyamoto Musashi. At first, Kiryu refuses, then when the girl goes as far as becoming an indentured servant in an opulent oiran brothel in order to pay the assassination mission he accepts the one-ryō request.

SettingThis spin-off is set in Kyoto during the Edo period, in 1605.

It is an account of the life of Miyamoto Musashi. The main adventure is completed with sidestories including minigames and a hundred "sub-stories".
