Yakuza is one of the greatest game series of the past 5 years. I totally agree with this guy's article on it. Beating the crap out of low-life thugs is totally satisfying, when they are throwing rocks at the puppy in front of Haruka, stealing some lady's purse, attacking some guy outside the ice cream shop, etc. They deserve every face-stomping beatdown you give them.

Not to mention that the boss battles in these games are freaking great. Chairs are breaking over heads, iron pipes and bats are flying across jaws, all combined with sweet martial arts street-fighting action. The controls seem to get more fluid with every iteration of the game, too.

Keep it comin', Sega!

Yakuza is one of the best franchises ever from the PS2 to the PS3. I wish Sega would localize the spin-off though like the Samurai era and the Zombie one. lol!

Don't worry.
.
According to Yas, Senior Producer of SEGA of America, in SEGA Yakuza Forums, as long he's at SEGA, he'll push to bring more Yakuza titles to the West.

Albeit, Yakuza Kenzan (the samurai Yakuza game) is might be difficult to bring to the west, Of The End zombies still possible.
