Wow really? That's great. Hopefully it means all future Yakuza games coming west.

Kaz Hirai was wise to prioritize western market over Japan. He knew More westerners are into Japanese games than Japanese themselves. PS4 was able to make niche third party Japanese games into million unit sellers this gen.
PS4 has really built so much interest in Yakuza lately.
Ypu can bet Sega is gonna publish more games on PS4.

I’m playing 0 right now and I love it! These games are amazing. I’m glad that they’re finally getting recognized and released outside Japan. I love seeing these Japanese asked games. Especially over the games like COD. I haw 0 and 1 (Kiwami) so far

That's awesome! If this keeps up, they might even bring over Kenzan and Ishin along with the 3-5 remasters.

Love this series and I've played every one but they do need to change it up a bit. It does feel like the same game over and over, with minor tweaks. But Yakuza 0 is one of the best games ever, if you've never played a Yakuza game that is one you need to check out.

Agreed, 0 is the best in the series, in my opinion.

Thats always good to hear from Veterans, I have personaly never played one but they looked intresting. Yakuza 0 is where its at then, thx

Yakuza K1 is different from Yakuza K2 and Yakuza 0 is totally different from Yakuza 6.

VivaChe35d ago

? In their stories, ok. But nearly everything else, including the game play is the exact same.
