Just announced today these extremely stylish (and expensive) Yakuza ring and pendant based on Kazuma Kiryu’s tattoo design.

The pendant is $269.99 USD and the ring is $345.99 USD. Surprisingly they’re actually getting an international release (of sorts) and are available from the US Tokyo Otaku Mode store!

Given the hefty price tag these will be items for only the most fashionable Yakuza fans.

GUYS. LISTEN UP.

Got this in my mailbox and took a look at the forum immediately. You should too. If you want Yakuza 5 to ever come out of Japan, we really need to let SEGA know that we WANT this game. A letter doesn’t cost much and it’s a really good way to get in touch with SEGA without spamming them online. I’m going to send at least two letters, both to different countries. 

And so help me if we can’t get even 1000 people to send letters! And before you go thinking all negative like “it doesn’t make a difference anyway” or “other people will send them so I don’t have to”, just no. Don’t. The Yakuza fandom is small in comparison and every person counts.

New Yakuza (Ryu Ga Gotoku) game in the works according to Famitsu!
From this weeks upcoming Famitsu magazine during an interview with series supervisor Nagoshi-san and series producer Yokoyama-san they discussed the next Ryu Ga Gotoku game and auditions for the upcoming hostesses.
No other details have leaked yet but as soon as they do we’ll update with more info. No word if it will be Yakuza 6 or another spin off like Ishin but I would wager it will be a continuation of the main series.

Anonymous said: Hey man:) I was checking Play-Asia and saw several Yakuza games in both Japan and Asia versions. Do you know if there's any significant difference? Thanks in advance.

Honestly just pricing. The language is still Japanese and the price of the Asian version is usually about $10-$20 cheaper.

If there’s a Playstation The Best version of the title though it’s about $40 cheaper.


When you visit a store and you see this, one shot only once in your life time you’ll see such a thing :P

A true thing of beauty. Buy them all and give to your friends!

New Ishin Update

khhsubs:

What’s this? An Update? Yes, I’m still alive.

Just updated the site. Arena section for Ishin is finished and I’ve added loads more weapons. I’m trying to finish up the battle dungeon but I keep getting my ass handed to me. Maybe I will be able to complete these missions eventually… Then, I can do the Amon side-story thing and finally finish the game.

Sega steadfast on no Yakuza Ishin localization.

Coming from an interview with Gamingbolt.com Sega Japan have once again confirmed there are no current plans to bring over Yakuza Ishin.

Leonid: Will Yakuza Ishin ever get a western release considering the fact that it’s the #1 PlayStation 4 game in Japan?
Sega Japan: There are currently no plans at this time.

Aside from disappointing western audiences the interview actually has some really interesting details:

Leonid: Why did you decide to make Yakuza Ishin a spin-off, instead of the next main entry in the franchise?
Sega Japan: We had the idea of making a spin-off based on the Edo era from the start. In the previous Yakuza 5 game, we were able to put one break off to the modern time version and wanted to add more of an RPG type of gameplay in the next title. We felt the idea of the new game and the time setting of the Edo era matched and so Yakuza Ishin was created.

They also go into some great stuff about programming on PS3/PS4. Definitely worth a read if you want to get into some of the fine details of Yakuza Ishin.
