    oh. my. fucking. god. :eek3:

    For those who don't know about Yakuza, it's hailed as the spiritual successor to Shenmue. FUCKING SHENMUE.

    In on day one.

    surely it will be only subbed, like Yakuza 2
    they fucked up Yakuza 1 with all the english dub, and later Sega complained of all the money spent localizing Y1 :rofl:

    Does the story carry across the games, or are they self contained like GTA?

    they carry (same protagonist in the 3 games)


    if anyone wants to get into the series, just get Yakuza 2
    there's an optional sequence in the beginning where you can choose to see a recopilation of the story Yakuza 1
    also, Yakuza 2 is much better. Better gameplay, more shit to do, original japanese voices / english subs much better that the english dub of Yakuza 1

    that's what I though :rofl: it looks like GTA mixed with a fighting game and a Japanese dating sim. [​IMG] And I mean that in a good way.

    Looks like they based some of the game in okinawa because of the shisa dogs on the gate entrance of the beach scene. I must get this game. Hopefully they made it true to life and put a drink machine on every corner.

    Just downloaded the demo off of Japanese PSN... I have no idea WTF is going on but it seems pretty cool. Not sure if you can use the vending machines like Shenmue though, or I didn't figure out how. Fighting is lolz in this game though, and all the weapons... it's fun. I don't think I beat the demo :o Will try later
