Sega on Yakuza 4 localization: “numbers often speak loudest”

While Yakuza 4 is right around the corner for Japan, we here in the west have just received Yakuza 3. It took a lot of pestering towards Sega to get them to bring the third numbered iteration in the series overseas but they finally did it.

Now how about Yakuza 4?

“It’s not a question I can really answer for you,” Sega of America Assistant Community Manager Aaron Webber said in a comment on the PlayStation.Blog, “but I would encourage all fans of the series to show their support for Yakuza by picking up a copy [of Yakuza 3]. At the end of the day, numbers often speak loudest.”

You heard the man? Go buy Yakuza 3 now.
