Yakuza Ishin is approaching its release in Japan on February 22nd, and Sega just released a batch of full HD screenshots from the PS4 version of the game.
I really hope this game comes stateside.
Yesss, I hope they do bring it. Hopefully if this sells well, they will also bring over Yakky 5 :D /in denial
worst comes to absolute worst you can import it. It's never ideal but I don't see why they wouldn't bring it over to US/EU
still looks old gen but with better detail, anti aliasing and all. it's nice they got it out on time
Indeed, I wonder if the Ch version is in english.
I also hope. But, the graphics for PS4 don't really impress. I do notice they shove a lot more on and it's higher res, but the quality of the textures don't look that great. Cloth looks like last gen cloth, same with body parts. I'll play this game regardless if it looks like it belongs on the PS3, but the title really is way off on this. Heck, the ground textures are horrific and flat. Edit -- For all those who disagree, I'm fine with that. I love these games. But, don't think that just because it's on PS4 that it will look as good as it should. PS3 vs PS4: http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/8QC8...
The PS4 version of the pic you posted looks nothing like that of the pics posted on this article, not sure where you got that picture but it looks more off-screen quality like.
http://losthatsportsblog.co... i love graphic sluts
Here are some more, FlameHawk http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/XCQX... http://i1.wp.com/gearnuke.c... @Dmarc: Did you also miss the part where I said I'd play this even if it looked like something on the PS3? How about the title of the submission that claimed the graphics look "beautifully realistic"? I mean, heaven forbid someone actually discuss graphics in a submission all about them!
I agree with you,it does look like an enhanced PS3 port with 1080p res @60fps & a texture up-lift and nothing else. Still,I love Yakuza games,I wish they bring this to the west at some point.
The game was originally a PS3 game. Mystery solved.
I honestly still don't see it, I'm not sure if the pictures are old but the pictures on this article look a lot better than the ones you posted. You can not say that this http://cdn2.dualshockers.co... looks the same as http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/XCQX... Try doing a zoom in the new picture around his face and compare, the new one looks a lot better and do not look all blurry.
Everything you said makes sense to me. They just hyping up the gfx to get views, its nothing new. I Dont see why you got all the disagrees it do look like a ps3 port. People on this site can't stand when a person is not worshipping a PS exclusive. The game going be great that's what matter.
@FlameHawk: Take away lighting on that screenshot you posted and it does look the same as the PS4 comparison one I posted. I mean, I'm not even comparing the models to those of Ryse, Second Son, or the like, which all put these to shame. As others have said, this graphics are poor because it's a port. The title is praising them way too high. But, gameplay and story on these make the graphics a nicety and not a necessity.
The PS4 is simply a "definitive" version. Just rendering at higher res and frame-rate with some minor bells & whistles there.
If not the PS4 is still region free :)
"I really hope this game comes stateside." Along with all previous Yakuza games HD remastered on the same disc.
I think it will come to stateside, since not many AAA titles are on PS4, it should actually sell well, lets hope SEGA realizes that....
I really want this! Sega should subtitle this game and release it immediately on PSN so that Western gamers can play this without having to wait two years for localised voice acting. It also would negate the risk of printing discs and would give them an idea of the demand for the game. Also the full page screens on DualShockers look great, you can really see the artwork.
the previous games only have Japanese voice acting, it was just subbed before. Some of them got subbed quite quickly (if i remember rightly Yakuza: Dead Souls was released about 5months after the Japanese release). Unfortunately it is Sega we are talking about here, who seem to think the world ends outside of their borders and they would fall off the map if they tried to export anything worth selling...
I Think it will take time. The need to change the language to English and they need people to do the translate English etc. But dont care if it take 1 year i hope it comes
"Eren..." And yes I hope it does as well.
at least add english subs.. would pay $80 to import this baby
for a lot of you saying this does look a lot better its because yakuza 3 and 4 the graphics were so good to begin with what's sad is this may never come to stateside like yakuza 5 or yakuza 1-2 hd collection. I bought all yakuza games at launch new so this is no way to treat your fanbase sega
On behalf of all North American PlayStation gamers, Please bring this game to the West. Thank you.
*WESTERN gamers, we European's want it too!
o Sorry, didn't realise the only countries outside of Japan are America and in Euro
Well, EU as well
The art style of this game reminds me of shenmue, if sega ever made another shenmue im sure it would look very similar to this.
Its the same Engine as Shenmue's. Which is why the look so similar.
thanks. i didn't know that. the characters especially the main guy reminds me of the bad guy in shenmue (lan di)
Rumours have been circulating about Shenmue for years, but especially so recently. It's like they're all clouding around next-gen, which to be fair is the best time to hype it up. However with Yu Suzuki's Shenmue post-mortem at GDC next-month, where Mark Cerny will be next to him, and a new game from a "significant series" will be announced by OPM during pretty much the same time frame. Sony have had it on their priority list and have acknowledged that they know their fans want it. If all the pieces are in place, and the right platform (which is successful in every region, but also the most relevant one being just around the corner) is here, it makes a lot of sense that it will be here: http://www.youtube.com/watc... If Sega ever made another Shenmue, it would look much better than Yakuza Ishin (which is a cross-generation game to begin with) - Suzuki's vision for Shenmue has always been grandoise, and taking as much as possible out of a piece of hardware. Shenmue III would ask no less.
Will there be sword fighting tho...better yet,will there be ninjas?
Give me a Tenchu game that looks this good.
Give me ANY Tenchu game ;I
Nice. They'd be fools not to bring it overseas. With a new console starving for games they're guaranteed a few hundred thousand sales. Easily worth translation costs.
Subtitles. Keep it authentic ;)
I wouldn't mind subtitles at all. They don't even need to do English voices. Just translate all the menus and text, and call it a day. That way the game would be localized much quicker and would give them more incentive to bring it to the west. Koei Tecmo did the same thing with Warriors Orochi 3 and it turned out pretty well.
Looking forward to playing it. I might actually import it like I have for a lot of PS3 and Vita games.
Atlus USA are the masters of localization, they could easily do it in 6 months, come on Sega, DO IT!
Another great game for PS4.
- said the Sony PR rep.
Still waiting on a demo to pop up. The Japanese PS4 store is online buy no demo for the Yakuza game yet on it.
Has it gotten to the point where we have to put "1080p" when referencing screenshots? This is going to be a long gen.
Exactly flame bait articles, hyped up games and headlines, doom articles. That's all I been seeing since next gen console launched. You barely see a decent article on this website anymore, its strickly dedicated to fanboys.
I agree! Sensationalizing graphics to make them seem like they are more than what they are is getting old around here... Beautifully realistic, when the art style isn't even going for realism is reaching.
Of course its necessary. I mean the bros think 720 and 1080 are the same. We need to point it out to them. We should make a book, Game Consoles for Dummies.
I got the DX addition with the sake bottle and cup...
while it looks good, i wouldn't say this looks realistic
Agreed. Compare this to something like the order and it makes this game look like a ps3 title.
the texture is too sharp in my opinion.
Too sharp...? Do good things bother you?
Yup. The sharper the better. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-u...
So every mention of the word "sharp" refers to increasing sharpness in photoshop now?
You obviously don't know what sharp means. You have to ENHANCE the image. Look at all the detail in there!
Looks good but far from realistic. far.
you need to see the game in motion. Go the the Japanese PSN and download the demo for PS3. While it does not have the 60fps the two versions are comparable. This game looks spot on realistic. I played this game just after watching the moon princess and all i can say is if this game was using the film standards of the late 80s you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between realism and cgi.
So what's your interest in this game, Blaze? Zero? Interesting. I wonder why you're here, then?
Uh, I actually like the Yakuza series. Have since I tried the Yakuza demo on PS2. Thanks for trying to profile me. But I'm black so I'm used to that here in merica :)
Lol, at Hicken. You can just tell the guy spends way too much time in the comments.
So just because he isn't being blinded by fanboyism, and can admit it doesn't look realistic, means he can't be a fan of the game series? Right.
Yeah, sure, cuz we've all been profiled before. You should probably do less trolling of Sony games and less irrational defense of Microsoft, then somebody might believe you.
Funny, one might same the same of you. Where you not in multiple Titanfall articles telling people that others can have a valid criticism for the game and should not be considered a fanboy or downplaying the game? http://n4g.com/news/1459469... Yes you did, and what was my response? Bingo!
Hoping for a release here in Northern Ireland aswell being part off the UK.
In what way is that realistic at all? It looks like a last gen game.
Was thinking the same
Sega release that gem to the west. It would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Hmm, I'm curious about this game. Graphics are nice but the article title kind of lead me to believe it'd be cgi quality.
Too bad none of us will be able to play it. Unless we pau like 100 bucks.
This game looks the part!
Let's be honest people, it looks like a glossy PS3 game.
