In case it wasn't already clear from the fresh announcements of Like a Dragon: Ishin!, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, and Like a Dragon 8, SEGA is dropping the 'Yakuza' name from its long running franchise.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon now makes more sense as a passing of the torch from one name to the other. Just don’t bring Kiryu out of retirement too much. Let the new guys carry the ball. Judgment was good too.
It's not really a new name. They're just using the japanese name.
I love Kiryu, I reckon he is one of the best Yakuza characters and the reason I enjoyed those games so much.
Oh Kiryu is fantastic! That’s why I don’t want them to cheapen his walk into the horizon in Yakuza 6. He got a nice lil’ ending. Don’t Ric Flair him by putting him in X more “final matches” across Y more years. If that makes sense.
Sega is part of the Yakuza
Actually the Yakuza is Sega and their main goal is the put nano black Helicopters into our central nervous system so that the Reptilian Shap-shifters can finally achieve their global dominance over man kind, this mean their New World Order will be complete but there will be no William Blaskovich aka Terror Billy to save us. God. Help. Us. All.
Anything to get us to buy sonic frontiers
The worst thing about Sega's New World Order is that they still won't bring back Skies of Arcadia
Is that my mother in law ?? She tells me shit like this
That's absurdly racist, there should be white helicopters too.
Where is Space Harrier 3? Phantasy Star V please
Well that explains things.
Your move Capcom. Where's my Biohazard 8 DLC and Biohazard 6: RE-Make? Huh? Huh?
Resident evil is a much better title then simply "biohazard"
I dont care about the name, just keep releasing these games as they are my favourite games now. But for some reason I just couldn't get into Judgement at all (I tried really hard) but the story and I think the main character just didn't do it for me. But the Yakuza games have got to be my favourite series now (it used to be Shenmue, but they killed that with Shenmue 3) and Shenmue was the reason I even found the Yakuza games, as I searched and asked around for something similar and this was what everyone mentioned. So so glad I played these games and now I'm hooked.
I think it is a good choice as they don't have any exclusive use of the word Yakuza and I recently saw another game with Yakuza in it and thought it was related to the Yakuza series of games.
would that be a good idea? yakuza would be great for brand recognition
Nothing wrong with that . No need to make 2 names unless it translates poorly .
It looses identity, but that's it...
I am ok with that as a long time Yakuza series fan(since Yakuza 1) But please continue the remake train with kenzen after ishin and figure out if judgement will become a series or not. I really couldn't get into turn based combat of recent Yakuza game so it's not my cup of tea but the devs have the right to work on what they want. It's just that now this series has become big please don't forget about us the longtime fans who were supporting the game financially and by spreading the news of how great this series is go others
that's fine. i'm still going to call it "yakuza" when i'm talking about it, though lol
