Fantastic Persona Burning Up shots from the Yakuza cast by @sinomanope Really love how Haruka turned out!
I’m surprised the yakuza series has not received an anime series or at least an OVA.
foxesbridge asked: Hi there, just a quick question about the Wii U - is it region-locked? I don't own one, but if it's region-free or on the off chance Sega decide to release Yakuza 1+2 HD Wii U the west, I'd actually consider buying the console, just for that reason :D
Yes all Nintendo consoles are region locked. PS3, however, is not region locked at all and the HD collection is already released on it!
If you can speak Japanese it’s totally worth picking it up. They are the definitive version of the game and based on the current screenshots the WiiU has blurry textures!
The Dragon of Dojima, Kazuma Kiryu.
I’m playing through Yakuza/Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 for the first time, after playing 1,2, 4, Dead Souls and Kenzan… Gotta say I’m really impressed!! Here’s hoping the HD collection/5 gets released in the States!
That’s one ragged Kazuma. Love it.
A collection of TAIGA MOTHAFLUFFIN’ SAEJIMA ACTUALLY SMILING!!!
Everytime Saejima smiles, a sloth runs a marathon. And we all know that both have been known to be pretty darn impossible…until now! O_O
Oh, the humanity!
IM FUCKING CRYING DAIGO IN A DRESS
A nd then majima saying his engines are fired up GOODBYE
This scene was worth Dead Souls being made.
Next Nagoshi-raw announced where they will be playing the Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD WiiU version live for the first time!
They will also be answering questions from the audience and discussing the mascot contest entries. It’ll be in complete Japanese but it’s Nagoshi-san hanging out and drinking while playing video games!
I sent an email to sega asking for any news for Y5 and while I didn’t get any they sent me an amusing haiku, here’s their response:

Hello Loyal Fan,
I cannot comment.
Stay tuned to the Sega site.

Maybe we should stay tuned, I’m feeling hopeful!
Hopefully Sega will show us something at E3 this year. With Sony’s press conference it would be a great place to say “We’re not forgetting about the PS3 just yet. Boom Yakuza 5!”
We’ll have to wait and see.
Official trailer for Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD for WiiU.
Love the map functionality and the ability to swap between screen and gamepad at the click of a button.
Here’s the WiiU version box art:
Had a few people send this one to me. First 4 Figures just released an AMAZING Ryo Hazuki figure and now they’re getting votes on who the next should be.
Kazuma Kiryu is in the running but falling behind! The Dragon of Dojima deserves better than this!
Sign up over on their forum and vote in this thread here.
Making this set was the next logical step! :D Love how it turned out! It’s one of my favorites (of the self-made ones). ^_^
… and yay for drag’n’drop working again! ^O^
Awesome job! Love the Kurohyou art style so much.
