With how successful the PS4 is worldwide, I'd say SEGA has a good chance of releasing it in the west
I want this in Japanese, with English subs, released (uncut) in the west.
i made a japan account just to dl the demo.. no freakin idea what is going on but the gameplay is really fun.
Played the demo andi agree. Comon Sega bring it over.
- Yakuza HD - Yakuza Kenzan - Yakuza 5 - Yakuza Ishin - Yakuza Black Panther 1 & 2 Sega need to localize them all. But lately i learn some japanese to play Yakuza 5 and someone already made a detailed Y5 guide in english. So, if there's no single hope about localization than i just buy the japanese version and play it with a guide.
Localize it please!!!!!
Please Sega, on all that is good and holy in this world, localize this for a western release. I will buy it up in a heart beat. I get super jealous watching live streams on my PS4.
This live streaming will change localization forever for the better.
It certainly is a welcomed feature to be able to see what games people are playing all around the world, directly from my PS4.
Definitely will help in the long run on PS4, right now MGSV japanese version will come with english subtitles and i'm sure FFXV will also, if only the Ryu Ga Gotoku(Yakuza) Series will do that.
that feeling of never being able to experience it in US
the song is clock strikes by one ok rock.
Yes and finally an amazing story with amazing dialogue
(semi-spoilers ahead!) This game inspired me to dig into the historical characters before/while playing this. I'm around 15hrs into the game and I can say, it's the best Ryû Ga Gotoku -game to date. It feels more like a historical RPG that is open world. I can buy, upgrade or combine weapons aka Souls' games. I find it cool unlocking various Dôjô's as they unlock/teach new fighting skills. In the past Yakuza games I was bored to see the same mini-games and similar locations, but in this one I take my time walking in the gardens (hurray for that R1 "walk slowly while you hold your Katanas like a macho man" -button!) and doing exploration. All that in mind, I'd still prefer slightly more detail in gameplay (like Shenmue) so I could satisfy my zen-hungry soul. But this is not a Shenmue game (although very close to a one), so I have to respect and treat this differently. Maybe the details in Yakuza games are in other places than in a Shenmue game... (and it might be a good thing!) Overall, I'd say, it's a masterpiece in many ways. Fresh, too! :) (note: the dialogue is extremely well-written, and you can see authentic classic Japanese in it, but also a great variation of Kochi, Kyoto and Edo -accents)
