These guys should be handed the Shenmue license, that would make my millennium.

doubt we will see another shenmue at this point we might be lucky to get it but i highly doubt it.

does yakuza sell well outside of Japan? is it a viable option to bring the recent games to NA and other english speaking countries and territories?
waltyftm  +   580d ago
They are not the greatest of sellers, but they are great games, hope this helps.

Massacred  +   580d ago

Yakuza Ishin the best Yakuza Story since Yakuza 1 you know why people cause Nishki-yama is back.I dont know how they can top that story.I hope the next game they keep only Kiryu as the Protagonist.I hate to play at other characters.

But Daisuke Sato created the Epic Binary Domain,Might be a new IP for the PS4.

Wow seriously??
I loved Yakuza 1, really one of my all time favorites. And damn, you actually played Yakuza Ishin, how was it?
I'm still looking for a cheap Yakuza 2 since its hard to find.
SuperYakuzaFan  +   580d ago
Oh my god you've not played Yakuza 2 yet??? Grab it now, you're gonna love.I spent about 200 hours to finish Yakuza 2 better than GTA By the way.Combat is soo amazing compared to Yakuza 1,you'll notice so many moves were copied from Yakuza 2 to Yakuza 3.

Okay STory wise Yakuza 2 same writer as Yakuza 1,AFter Yakuza 2 the writer did Kenzan and left the series,3,4,5 story wasn't as good.But Ishin is back to form as they are bringing some of the Key players from Yakuza ONe mainly Nishkiyama and making it a serious toned game.Combat for ishin,they combined Kenzan swordplay with Yakuza's brawling result is amazing.

Loved 1 but the dub absolutely killed it for me >.<

With the constant f-bombs, despite that I still thoroughly enjoyed it

3 was just just a middle finger to us preps in the west from sega. I enjoyed them all including dead souls but I personally thought 4 is slightly better with the different characters.

Anyone with common sense knows Yakuza is miles ahead of GTA or any other game.
The japanese demo for Ishin was awesome, i just was pretty much no sure what was going on.
Goro  +   580d ago
Cool, your the only other guy i've ever met with Yakuza in his name.
AceBlazer13  +   580d ago
hopefully the next game iss Yakuza Isshin: language you understand edition.

The bilingual gamers are so lucky to have awider choosing of games.
SuperYakuzaFan  +   580d ago
u should play Yakuza 1 and you will understand the story of Yakuza Ishin,same characters but different world but story similarity is there,just remove Haruka(the little girl) from the game.
Goro  +   580d ago
Give me 5 & Ishin you basterds!
theshredded  +   580d ago

Myst-Vearn  +   580d ago
