PS4 Exclusivity a Step Toward Yakuza 6 Localization (And 4 Other Takeaways From Sega’s Recent Moves)

"I don’t feel confident enough to predict Ishin or Yakuza 0, but I do think Yakuza 6 will go westward. For Japanese console games, PS4 is where the money is to be made. Nippon Ichi made Disgaea 5 a PS4 exclusive with the worldwide market in mind, and I suspect Sega is doing something similar with Yakuza 6. That’d be magical if localization happened within a month or three of the JP release, but I know that might be asking a bit much." -PSLS

People need to buy Yakuza 5 when it releases here for ps3 as it will give SEGA incentive to localize other games faster.
I'm so happy Yakuza 6 is ps4 only as it will fully utilize power of PS4, imagine all the mini games that are possible.

Their mini-games always surprise me. I remember back in Yakuza 3 I had to play one karaoke game because it was part of the main story. I was shocked over how well it was done. Amazing stuff.

I am looking forward to 5 this fall because my favorite character, Akiyama returns. That guy defines cool. Not just in he is a great character but he is cool in the old use of the word. He is laid back, calm and collected, and people have trouble reading him. He reads situations. Very well written.

Haha yes! I count myself as an Akiyama lover as well. I love his laid back character, and I love even more that he's voiced by Yamadera Kouichi, the same guy who voiced Hibiki Ryouga in Ranma 1/2 back in the 90s.

I've already purchased a physical japanese copy (as well as Kenzan, Ishin and the HD Collection), sucks we only get a digital copy in the west :/

I always play it with feeling that game would be the last Yakuza game ever released in English.

Such a standout series. Great moments

I'll think they localize the remake of the first game first to see if people are win to jump into the series then they may localize or not Yakuza 6 depending on the western sales of Yakuza Kimawi
