For gamers who love Yakuza, the fifth game in the series is currently in development and should be released next year.
Famitsu is ONFIRE.
Crap... I still have to finish 3. My backlog is getting insane and all the new games coming out ain't helping.
i managed to finish 3 just before the 4th one came out. and i've only finished chapter 1 in the 4th one. these sandbox/rpg games can really drain you out.
Great series. Glad a 5th one is one the way!
Yeah im glad too. Im just wondering how they will continue the story. Yakuza 4 was tied to all previous Yakuzas stories especially 1 and it finished it off. TBH a lot of people that died in previous series was some of my favorite characters. I wish it was some way they could come back. This time they better make you play with Kiryu the longest and most.
Welcome back, Dragon of Dojima!!!!!!! Too bad Sega decided they won't be releasing the spin-offs and Gaidens of Yakuza outside Japan. I would love to play Black Panther.
I hope they bring back Kaoru Sayama.
I know right she's been M.I.A. for a while. I got the feeling she will be in Yakuza 5 and Kiryu will come to her rescue.
She was one of the best things about Yakuza 2. Terrific character.
wow, we just had 3 and 4. I wonder how they did in the US just to make sure. Edit: F***, what the hell happened with 4?! Sales are back to Yakuza 2. Damn you consumers!
Not being able to play Kazuma through out the game affected its sale and some reviewers gave it bad rep for not (according to them) adding anything new. In my opinion why fix what isn't broken. Also most don't realize that 4 connected the entire plot of the series together. @FacelessGod I agree she should be back! It would be interesting to see her coming back as part Interpol only to see Kazuma back as the boss of the Dojima clan. lol!
I need more Kazuma Kiryu!!!!
Call of Duty can just eat their s*** and guns and die. (starts crying in one corner) It ain't fair!
This game is like a drug and I need my fix
I'm so backlogged with games, but I have Y-4 sitting there staring at me in the face screaming "play me"!!!! I just finished Infamous 2 and Crysis 2. Than I moved to LA Noire. Y-4 may be next once I finish that... Christ, I still have Dead Space 2 & KZ 3..... Not to mention, I already pre-ordered Gears 3, Saints Row 3, and UC3.... I'm not going to even touch R3 yet.... Damn, I'm behind. The sad part is I know all these games are good.... LOL Not enough time between work and play!
Haha, I'm in the exact same situation. Right now I'm playing Demon's Souls, but I still need to finish Borderlands, Portal 2, Just Cause 2, Yakuza 3, Infamous 1 and 2, some PSP and PC games. And then this fall there is UC3, R3, Deus Ex, Ace Combat, FIFA 12, Battlefield 3, and Skyrim. I'm probably missing a few on that list as well, games overload!
Yes! maybe SEGA will give Yakuza 5 a new hero like Yakuza 4 or Black Panther
Yakuza desperately needs a new protagonist. It's just plain silly how many times Kiryu has gotten pulled back into "the life." Ooh, here's an idea--why not make the next game something of a "crossover" with the Kenzan! spin-off? Split the game between modern Japan and the Edo-era. Add some historical mystery to the usual corrupt politician/businessmen angle. And then: Zombie DLC to drive everything home.
Localize Of the End dammit!
What-EVER! I thought the whole Yakuza series was coming to the xbox360 with 1 & 2 fully remastered in HD and making of footage and plenty other extra content only for the xbox360, all on 1 dvd! And I know that's what everybody had in mind! How could it be??? XD (tries hard not to burst in laughter)
