    Yesterday a major rumor cropped up concerning a possible next chapter in the Yakuza: Like a Dragon spinoff title. The only source was a screenshot of the Yakuza series producer Masa Yokoyama seemingly tweeting out that there would be another game in the same vein titled Yakuza: Like an Ashura. This version allegedly would be starring a young Watase.

    Yokoyama expresses tongue-in-cheek that while he’s happy to be forged oversees, he didn’t even make the Yakuza: Like a Dragon spinoff (it was directed by Ryosuke Horii and produced by both Hiroyuki Sakamoto and Daisuke Sato) so he wouldn’t even be able to confirmed anything. And more humorously he also points out that he would never name it “Ashura” in the first place.

    To the credit of the one who posted the initial screenshot, they did disclaim the rumor with “take it with a grain of salt” and was forthcoming once the original tweet was deleted. But this situation is why vetting sources is so important, especially when said sources forge screenshots of developers making statements they never did.
