    never played a yakuza game this will be the first for me

    day 1

    (btw i know how this doesn’t get localized, but verendus the neogaf insider said that it’s happening and this game will get localized)

    • マッシュー

      We don’t even have 5 yet and someone knows this will be localized? What? lol.

      • MrRobbyM

        To be fair, 4 and 5 are a lot alike. So I see why Sega would skip it, even though there is still time to localize it.

        • マッシュー

          Why would there be a reason to skip 5 when it’s the next in the canon series? Never heard of that being a good decision before. Plus we never got Kenzan.

          What? No. 5 made a lot of changes with the system that wasn’t shown in 4. How can you say they are a lot alike? 4 was pretty dull to me, but 5… That really breathed some life back into the series.

    • マッシュー

      Mind you we also didn’t get Kenzan, so I’m pretty doubtful.

    I wonder if we will get it since we didn’t get the last one that took place during the era of Samurai. We got the two after. I hope we get it. It looks awesome and enjoy the stories.

    • マッシュー

      We didn’t get Kenzan (The other Edo-like one), plus we haven’t even gotten Yakuza 5 yet, so I wouldn’t think we’d get this anytime soon if at all. Sega localizations..

    Looks great. Will import regardless, and double-dip if localized.

  • 罪罰

    Dat gameplay trailers, must buy.

  • King-Podigy-X

    My God, the detail in the graphics.

  • MrRobbyM

    It looks great but definitely at a higher resolution than the actual game will be. That or maybe it’s the video? Either way, it looks fun.

    Edit: OH. It’s also coming to PS4. Well. *screams internally*

  • Kobracon

    Dat combat! Holy crap….4 combat styles? Sword, Gun, Sword & Gun and Hand to hand? This is gonna be amazing

  • Eclipse

    That…was absolutely glorious!

    Toshihiro Nagoshi has done it again!

  • shogunknight

    This is damn impressive

  • DesmaX

    Very impressive, looks amazing.

    Wow. I loved the presentation! This is how a trailer should be. I am definitely excited!

    This pretty much solidifies my reason for getting a PS4 in February, haha.

    I’ll be happy tu buy it if it comes to america/Europe.

    Same for Yakuza 5 and, who knows, Kenzan.

  • EX+

    Graphics and gameplay look fucking amazing.

  • Alex TSi

    Looks great.
    Buy it!

  • almostautumn

    This is great. I just recently finished reading a text-book section of all the Kamakura period’s literature/poetry and am way more than ready to play a game in feudal Japan.
    Hope this game is similar to Yakuza 4, which always had a “priority” marker on the map so you didn’t get lost. I assume this won’t be localized (or at least not any time soon), but also don’t mind importing so long as those markers are there.
