Yakuza Team Targets the West With New PS3/X360 Title

Sega's Yakuza series has been met with critical praise throughout the world, but its commercial success has been limited to Japan. That pattern could be coming to an end -- but not with a Yakuza game. Japan's Weekly Famitsu reveals this week that the team that brought us Yakuza is working on Binary Domain, a new multiplatform PS3 and Xbox 360 title that targets the world market.

Pleas Japan, just do your thing, this is never going to work.

Let's wait & see it first.

Who knows, Vanquish was a fairly awesome shooter.

blind-reaper2514d ago

dude as long as they don't "westernize" yakuza everything is allright, they can experiment all they want, I will be glad to try it. Until then I can't wait till yakuza 4 hit the US.

Masamori Sumimura2514d ago

They're already westernizing Yakuza by making a Zombie x yakuza game.

ZombieAssassin2514d ago

I wouldn't say throwing zombies in a game makes it westernized, I mean Resident Evil was a Japanese developed game and it's prolly the best selling zombie game franchise around. I think it's just a lot more western studios are doing it now like Valve and R* with the undead nightmare pack and Campcom giving DR to a western dev.

Vanquish(Platinum Games) was one of the very few bright spots out of Japan in a while.

I think the Yakuza games are well done and I think they could make something work but its been hit and miss with Japan developers crossing over to more western appealing games.

"Vanquish was one of the very few bright spots out of Japan in a while"

From an ignorant stand point, maybe. Japan has been releasing plenty of great games.

I think that Bayonetta was also pretty good to some people.

Redempteur2514d ago

for a while ??

lol japan was never dry ..some propaganda made you think so .

let's see .. GT5 , demon souls , vanquish , bayonnetta , super street fighter 4, blazblue , monter hunter tri , yakuza , ultimate ninja storm 1 & 2 and the list goes on ..

All on the top of their genres ...

SoapShoes2514d ago

They can target the west by localizing Yakuza!

SilverSlug2514d ago

Yakuza 4 was just announced months ago, trailer just went up. Pay attention.

Stealth20k2514d ago

and it looks generic and pretty shitty

another japanese attempt at a shooter yawn

guzman2514d ago

Seriously, just throw yourself under a bus.

seij5552514d ago

Their game will flop on xbox, there is no fanbase.

Rage_S902514d ago

say waht there is no fanbase on ether console since its a new ip

SilverSlug2514d ago

Pretty much. I'll get it on PS3.

starchild2514d ago

Wow, what an intelligent, well-thought out comment.

What do you mean there is no fan base? Many multiplatform games routinely sell more on the 360 than on the PS3.
