Right from the latest Sega Raw live stream Nagoshi revealed that SEGA japan was happy with the response Kiwami received selling nearly 500,000 copies across asia! Thanks to that success SEGA have begun looking into ways to produce remakes of other Yakuza titles for current gen consoles.
Unfortunately there’s no western release of Kiwami on the horizon and with Yakuza 6 coming out so soon I’m afraid our Yakuza remake dreams may stay locked in Japan with Kenzan and Ishin.
You can watch the latest Sega RAW here. It’s in complete Japanese but it’s always nice to hang out with Nagoshi-san.
