Yakuza Ishin's PS4 Release Wasn't Initially Planned

Yakuza Ishin seems to be one of the most popular PS4 games in Japan at the moment, but during the launch countdown event aired yesterday night Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama mentioned something fairly interesting. (PS4, Yakuza Ishin)

I read that as "PS4 Western Release Wasn't initially planned" and I got excited for a second.

I'm not sure how you managed to read that into it ^_^;

Wishful thinking I guess.

I will hate Sony if they don't push SEGA to publish this game in the west.

It'll come, it just might take some time.

It's nice to see with this game, an even Injustice: Gods Among Us at the U.S. launch, that making upgraded ports really is a fast process when it comes to PS4 games. It only takes a couple months and we get a higher quality version. Just further proof of the ridiculous low dev/optimization time needed for PS4 games.

We're going to see a lot of PC games come to PS4 because of this too, there's already a lot coming in fact.

I am nervous.


Does not paint a good picture. I just hope this game sold. I want more.

Ever heard of pre-orders?

I know you're just trolling but we'll see how well it sold in Japan by next week, unless Sony decides to make an early announcement about it.

I'm hoping a western release is planned.

Same type of game, and I mean very similar, came out during PS3 launch and it never got localized. Hopefully the better sales will make it happen this time.

So can we buy this game on the Japanese PSN Store? Sure, it would be in Japanese, but for those of us who speak/are learning Japanese, could we get this? 'Cause...seems that so long as we can access the store, we should be able to use a Western credit card or even paypal to get this.
