Well of course this gets a reblog.
Yakuza is a game you might have skipped or never paid much attention to because there are just too many other great PS2 games. However, you should definitely take a look at it if you’re interested in a game that might be a little old, but has a lot to offer if you are willing to invest a little bit of time in it.
Original concept art from Yakuza 1.
Featured in the behind the scenes/making of the Ryu Ga Gotoku series book.
It’s completely in Japanese but if you can translate it it’s fascinating! The book goes behind the scenes on the creators ideas and inspirations and even in depth with the games design process.
Reblogging my original post from 8 months ago since I find concept art amazing!
I really have a weird-fetish-kinda-thingy for his “old” nose going on…. It’s just… so manly…. and….. HUGE!!!
Makes me wanna do strange things to it… +.+
From Yakuza 1 before they changed everyone’s faces to better match the voice actors.

Majima and Kazuma’s voice actors play through Yakuza 2. Reminiscing about the good old days. Completely in Japanese but makes me pine for a copy of Yakuza HD
The voice actors of Majima and Kazuma play through some more of Yakuza 1 and reminisce about the old days. Volume 2.
Completely in Japanese but worth a watch.
On August 24th the Ryu Ga Gotoku live event was held allowing press and fans to come and listen to a talk about the new game and HD rereleases of Yakuza 1 & 2!
4Gamer.net was there and has a few photos of the event.
Apparently a preview trailer for Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 was shown at the event but everyone that was there is under embargo not to speak about it until it’s officially released. :-(
