no reason to make an article for this..
of course the game will be cross gen due to the big PS3 fan base.

No reason to make this article because it won't see the light of day outside of Japan....

Exactly and its not like Yakuza is known for it's graphics/physics/particles, so there shouldn't be any cross gen crying.

Still waiting for localization ?
Seriously how is it that Nis games get localized and dubbed???

Goro3618d ago

Because they give a shit about their fans, unlike Sega who would much prefer to feed us more generic Sonic games instead of localizing Yakuza or even beginning development on the long anticipated Shenmue 3.

Give me Yakuza 5 first!

Western release please, even if its just subtitled!

Summons753618d ago

Problem with that is we didn't even get 5 or that spinoff. If this does and those don't then were missing a huge chuck of story from 5.

King_of_Nothing3618d ago

I agree competely. I was speaking about the series in general. I'm hoping that 4 isnt the last of the series we get in the west

SickNick853618d ago

Give me Yakuza f'n Kenzan first!!!!

Goro3618d ago (Edited 3618d ago )

I'm playing it right now, it's actually not too hard to understand usually but it's a walk in the park with a YouTube guide.
