SEGA has this morning revealed the Yakuza 6: The Song of Life release date in the Americas.
Again I ask, Shenmue who?
Spiritual successor to Shenmue...
Shenmue is a PC Adventure game with some action segments. Yakuza is an Action game. They are not in the same genre so silly to compare them. I love both btw.
Shenmue is the best forklift simulator ever! But I'll stick to Yakuza when I want to have actual fun with a video game.
Do i need background to play this game ? I never played any Yakuza but this looks so awesome, kinda giving me Sleeping Dogs vibe
It's nothing to do with it, it's more of an RPG like Shenmue
Sleeping Dogs was a bad rip off of Yakuza. I'd say watch Yakuza 1-5 stories since they are sequels to each other. They may not be fully necessary but having the background on who characters are and what they have been through would be helpful.
Except Sleeping Dogs isn't bad at all, not the biggest open world but very fun combat and a solid story. The two games have nothing to do with each other.
@Summ- "Sleeping Dogs was a bad rip off of Yakuza" smh. No...god no. Both games are COMPLETELY different, they literally have nothing to do with each other.
Sleeping dogs was made as a spiritual successor to True crime. It was going to be True Crime: Hong Kong originally but Activision cancelled it and they took it to square but they couldn't use the True crime name. Thus sleeping dogs was made. They have no connection.
If anything else, Sleeping Dog is ripoff of GTA, but a spectacular one that is. IMO, Sleeping Dog is way better than Yakuza. I dont understand why there is no sequel until now.
Never watch stories cause you can miss out like a cred fag go the distance and actually experience and play the game.
You should play Yakuza 0, since it is a prequel. Then I would recommend Kiwami after that, as it is a remake of the first Yakuza. The story in Yakuza 0 is dope, I couldn't recommend it more.
Alright, i'll add it in the list and play 0 before this one !
You might need to legit play some of them. Yakzua series has a pretty deep story and it only helps to know some of that background. The games are pretty cheap to pick up on PS3 used and you could start with Yakuza Zero and Yakuza 1 remake on PS4 and move on to Yakuza 3-5 on PS3 if you like what you play. This is nothing like Sleep Dogs btw. Sleeping Dogs having vehicles and gun play, yakuza series doesn't have anything of this other then in a Zombie Spin off. .
I was like feeling it from the combat and like those mini games and dates and stuff ! N I'll start with Zero when i can, thanks :D
It's not like Shenmue nor Sleeping Dogs. It's not a GTA like game at all. It has a hub world essentially. It's not a RPG neither was Shenmue. Yakuza is amazing tho and best start with 0. It's a prequel.
I'll see about the Zero :D Thanks !
Awesome! Hopefully this comes to Europe as well (the CE I mean).
Premium Edition is a must buy for Kazuma Kiryu last fight damn it's going to be sad
You might throw one or two of those glasses at the TV in certain sections involving a baby.
damn i hope not they look really nice lol
Edit: Can't reply directly to you ONESHOT, but I was just exaggerating. Its a small part of the game but I guarantee you will remember my comment when you play that section! I am through 4 chapters of the game and so far and I am enjoying it.
This is the first CE for Yakuza right?
Matrix6--- maybe the first big CE
Yakuza 0 had the Business Edition.
Cool March 20 2018 im excited after yakuza 0 i was hooked kiwiami next week day 1 for me its upgraded not just remaster upscale
Well I'm glad I got the Japanese version... I expected this to be released in January... Guess I'll have to wait a few more months to fully understand everything.
An actually CE for the West. I needs!
To this day people comparing this game to Shenmue clearly don't know what they're talking about, when it comes to gameplay, story, setting etc the two games are nothing alike. Huge fan of both Series' and the comparisons just undermine both franchises.
Agreed. (Respect on the name too! lol) Both titles have many similarities, but over all are vastly different games.
Indeed. FInally, someone else who isn't blind to genres. They are only comparable only on the surface. Everything else they could not be more different.
Agreed. Be like "fighting, open world, both asian, must be the same" lol Playing both games, I have no clue how anyone would think they are alike, at glance....maybe, but when you actually play them, they are just vastly different.
Day friggenn 1!
