Author Writes "According to Sega's Integrated Report 2018, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has sold just as many copies in the west as it has in Japan."
Wow really? That's great. Hopefully it means all future Yakuza games coming west.
Kaz Hirai was wise to prioritize western market over Japan. He knew More westerners are into Japanese games than Japanese themselves. PS4 was able to make niche third party Japanese games into million unit sellers this gen. PS4 has really built so much interest in Yakuza lately. Ypu can bet Sega is gonna publish more games on PS4.
I’m playing 0 right now and I love it! These games are amazing. I’m glad that they’re finally getting recognized and released outside Japan. I love seeing these Japanese asked games. Especially over the games like COD. I haw 0 and 1 (Kiwami) so far
That's awesome! If this keeps up, they might even bring over Kenzan and Ishin along with the 3-5 remasters.
Kenzan and Ishin? If that happens,day one.
JP: December 8, 2016 WW: April 17, 2018 numbers looks really good for WW release.
Love this series and I've played every one but they do need to change it up a bit. It does feel like the same game over and over, with minor tweaks. But Yakuza 0 is one of the best games ever, if you've never played a Yakuza game that is one you need to check out.
Agreed, 0 is the best in the series, in my opinion.
Thats always good to hear from Veterans, I have personaly never played one but they looked intresting. Yakuza 0 is where its at then, thx
Yakuza K1 is different from Yakuza K2 and Yakuza 0 is totally different from Yakuza 6.
? In their stories, ok. But nearly everything else, including the game play is the exact same.
Obligatory: “That’s rad!”
Awesome news! Cant wait for project judge and really enjoyed kiwami 2!
Deserving. Great game.
I still need to get this one. These games are awesome!
That's a very good sign.
Such a great series!
It seem like when PlayStation is doing well niche Japanese games are well.
I have four Yakuza games in PS4: 0, Kiwami, Kiwami 2 and 6. I just hope they'll release Yakuza 5 physically some day.
happy to say im one of those sales, finished the game 2 weeks ago and it was very enjoyable. from the more serious main story mission to the more goofy sub stories and mini games
Excellent news, the series is amazing . Kazuma kiru is one of this gens best characters ‘
And Goro Majima. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Yeah and the mad dog himself majima , can’t believe I forgot about him haha
Long live Japanese success in western markets
I'm bummed Yakuzo 0 and 6 dont have steelbooks😭
The Yakuza series has a distinct flavor it's not your typical GTA clone, IMO a very underrated series I'm glad it's finally getting it's due with as much success in the west as it has had in Japan.
Seeing that Japan market has virtually disappeared I can't imagine this to be a good metric. I mean come on "Yakuza series (since 2005) – Approx. 11 million (units / downloads) (packaged and digital total) across 92 total editions" That is the complete series... and Yakuza 6 is sitting around 380K in Japan and 220K outside of Japan. https://imgur.com/CfqGsPZ
Bring it to Xbox Sega🤗
Good, this series is absolutley legendary. Please.. by the gods, give us a remastered version of the one set back in the samurai times.
