Yakuza 6 Troubles with Localization GDC 2017

Here’s one of the things I’d never considered when it comes to localization. With tensions between these countries so high and SEGA trying to break into the Chinese market I can see why they may have such a problem with this.

Jung-Sheng Lin posits that by simply using the line the “country” of Taiwan in the hostesses question Taiwanese gamers praised SEGA for being progressive or siding with Taiwanese people that would like independence from Chinese rule. Of course as soon as Chinese celebs started hearing about this and the news started spreading SEGA needed to patch the game and remove the dialogue completely so as not to stir controversy.

Something that should have been a nothing issue needed new dialogue to be recorded and an entire patch rolled out even though the game hadn’t officially released in either country yet!

Forging The Dragon [Part 8]

Finally, Ryu Ga Gotoku releases. With a budget of 2.1 Billion yen behind it can it hope to recoup its costs? Or will Nagoshi be out of a job?

First 4 Figures New Sculpt for Kiryu Statue. Gauging Interest With Facebook Poll! No Interest = No Statue so go Vote!

First 4 Figures New Sculpt for Kiryu Statue. Gauging Interest With Facebook Poll! No Interest = No Statue so go Vote!

First 4 Figures are currently running a poll in the First 4 Figures Official Collectors Club facebook group to gauge interest in continuing forward with the Kazuma Kiryu statue. This may be the last time we get the chance for a Kiryu statue based on the response this poll receives.

No word on pricing yet but remember First 4 Figures statues are highly detailed and on the larger side so they’re a little more expensive than the usual figure but damn is it worth it for the extra mile they go to to make sure it’s perfect. Below you can see some clearer images of the sculpt render. There’s 2 versions full suit and shirtless and both look amazing but the detail on the dragon tattoo is just perfect!

Remember this is Kiryu from Yakuza 4 specifically so he’s a little less detailed than in 0 and 6 but in my opinion this looks AMAZING and will be grabbing it as soon as preorders go up!

So this is what it comes down to; If you would buy a high quality kazuma Kiryu statue go join the group and vote Yes.

See some higher quality renders of the sculpt after the jump!
