Legendary Yakuza Producer Toshihiro Nagoshi just announced that "super up-to-date" information on Yakuza Ishin will come on the same day of Son Japan's PS4-focused conference.
so another exlusive for the PS4? ^_^ very nice indeed ^_^
I would say it's almost safe to assume it by now.
nagoshi knows where are the yakuza fans is... he even said that the yakuza series grew only on playstation even if sony doesnt moneyhat devs/publishers... some games mostly in japan will only be released exclusive to playstation systems ^_^ a prime good examples are NIS games, gust games,and some series/franchises that still remains to playstation untill now ^_^
Sony: 10 new PS4 games will feature Yakuza Producer: Info on Yakuza will come on the day :D
Yakuza games look insane on PS3 and i can barely imagine how they would look on PS4.
Europe gives Yakuza love as well. Looking forward!
Yakuza for PS4 CONFIRMED!
more like: another game that will never see an overseas release. =/
I would not bet on that. Yakuza Ishin will be a self contained game, so having played the previous chapters of the series is not necessary, and Sony is known for pushing localization of titles during the early days of a platform to beef its line-up. Remember Gundam for PS3?
^ I like your optimism. But Kenzan was also a self-contained game and it never came here.
Axisian: Kenzan was also released almost two years after the console. I would not exclude it, or maybe yeah, it's just optimism speaking :D
Keep in mind that Kenzan did not have trophy support. At the time of Sega's typical location period (1 year post Japan release), Sony had a very deep line in the sand regarding the release of games on the PS3 without trophy incorporation.
indeed the haters will say but but ps4 has no games ryse titan fall and forza and killer instinct have better graphics than killzon shadowfall lol
Seriously hope Sony has some surprises for everyone. I mean they are live streaming and subbing the event, so there must be something of intrest for us right? Shenmue 3 and TLG for worldwide meltdown.
Shenmue 3? GTFO with that kind of heartbreak talk; you only make tears flow from the rivers of our soul with such words.
gameply for the order 1886 and deep down will do the trick for me :)
I'm expecting The Order gameplay at VGA's to be honest. The Last Guardian though better be ready for TGS.
This keeps getting better & better
I love the variety on the ps4 so far.
"Son Japan" haha you should add a [sic] to that, whatever that means Anyways, the Yakuza HD Collection released on the Wii U not too long ago. Maybe this will be a PS4/WiiU multiplat? Then again, it did HORRIBURU on the Wii U. I think around the same as the flop sales of W101. So maybe PS4 exclusive?
Lolwiiu. After the HD collection's sales you can pretty much bet the Wii U will never, ever see another Yakuza game again. Experiment failed. And failed.
This will be a PlayStation title only. The WiiU had its test with the HD Collection and failed miserably. Don't see that road being taken again, which is smart, since Yakuza fans are on PlayStation systems. It's DEFINITELY PS4 exclusive.
Now that since its coming for a console launch the chances of it getting localized should be higher. Comeon SEGA do your job! you can't expect to gain more fans by keeping all your games in Japan.
PS4 exclusiv confirmed.
not til Sega say it is
Nah, i'm pretty sure that Sony pays sega for the exclusivity
Unless MS throws a lot of money at Sega's way because that Wii U Yakuza HD experiment didn't do so well. But more importantly I wish someone would help Sega localize Y5 because its clear they won't do it on their own.
@ tiffac: If the WiiU experiment didn't do so well, and it didn't, the Xbox experiment would do even WORSE! Remember, the majority of its fans are in Japan, who don't go for Xbox. Thus, it will be PS4 exclusive.Plain and simple.
@CGI What did I say that contradicted the obvious?
@ tiffac: Errr...where did I imply a contradiction? Unless you have no faith in your own idea - I was simply stating how unlikely that scenario is.
@CGI Well I was just making sure there was no misunderstanding on our part because you usually do not state the obvious to the person who has the same point as you do. Of course in the end it seems some did not get what I said basing on the disagrees. Lol Edit: NVM I see now where all the misunderstanding is coming from. My reply was for Misaka not fsxii and I did not made it clear. :/
now folks is it exclusive to PS4
Forget Yakuza. Sega Eight just announced Shenmue 3 will be an exclusive...in a parallel universe, not too far away.
More good news from Sony
So Tokyo Game Show reveal it is I presume
Wouldn't really get too excited about this as sure it may be a PS4 exclusive but probably never be released in the west. Sega are complete dicks when it comes to their games. They think that all the people who live in the west want from their catalogue are the crap games featuring a blue hedgehog. All previous games from the Yakuza franchise were released over in the west, all apart from the best one of the lot Yakuza 5 and Sega have basically said that they are not going to localise it due to lack of interest. It was Sega's own fault for thinking that Yakuza: Dead Souls would sell bucket loads because it featured zombies in it. Only reason I bought it was because I have all the previous Yakuza games. Dead Souls was weak and I couldn't be bothered to even finish it. Was looking forward to Yakuza 5 but no localisation means I can't play it unless I learn Japanese or play game and follow translations on the net. Sega are so dumb because if they planned ahead they could include an option for English subtitles in the game and an option for changing other game text to English while making the game, they wouldn't need to have the game dubbed into English as the speaking in Japanese isn't a problem with subtitles. Then they could release in the west also and not have to spend extra money to localise it later on. As much as I would love to see Ishin released outside Japan, I can't see it happening as Sega don't know what their customers want and it sure as hell isn't another Sonic game.
Im gonna import yakuza 5 next year , someone on youtube will translate it... His name is khhsubs. He translated all of kenzan so i went ahead and imported it. Now he started doing Y5 translated substory, and by next year he said he will translate 5.. Also imported 1&2 hd cuz theres a story walktrough on youtube cuz it came out in english. Hopefully ishin will arrive outside japan but with sega i also doubt it.
So many games so little time. I wish I have a clone that do work while I play games xD
