And then there was that one time Kiryu had sex with a 12 year old girl…

#reasonswhythegamenevergotlocalised

This is why we don’t have nice things!

Edit: I meant localised Kenzan, not 12 year old girls. Get your minds out of the gutter!

I’d totally kill myself with that thing! …Probably in less than 5 minutes. >.>

Majima Gorohachi from Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan. Why this game was never brought west I will never know.

Great to see you guys back with more Kenzan stuff!

Ryu Ga Gotoku Lets Play by DylanY.
He doesn’t speak Japanese but he has a great time playing. Very chill and funny lets play that really captures what it’s like jumping in to a game if you don’t understand the language.
It reminds me of my first time through Kenzan discovering everything, guessing and hoping you were getting it right with lots of walkthrough checks.
Lots of fun! He’s already up to Episode 6 and they’re really long coming in at about 50min a piece but if you just want to chill and watch a great (my personal favorite) Yakuza game please do.

KHHsubs: KHHsubs in 2013

KHHsubs in 2013

I thought it was time for an update on what’s happening at KHHsubs. 

Here are a few things we have planned for the year:

Captain Epic

First thing I’m doing is finishing off Kenzan - I plan on doing all the substories for the game (requests, bounties and kakemawari missions). I’m not sure when I’ll get started on this, but hopefully by the end of next month at latest.

After Kenzan is all finished up, I’ll be looking into doing the Kurohyou TV drama series. This will be a nice break from the MASS of text in Kenzan - I don’t want to do another massive game like that again for a while, lol (A translation walkthrough of the Kurohyou PSP game is going to have to wait until later). This will be a lot more straightforward than the Kenzan stuff. Depending on how this goes (and how long it takes me), I may look at the 2nd series (Kurohyou 2) after that.

You guys always do quality work. Can’t wait to see the subs for Kurohyou!

Thanks for all the translation work over the last year you guys really help us know what’s going on.

Kenzan is finished!

khhsubs:

Well, the Kenzan walkthrough is finally finished!

It took my longer than I hoped, but oh well, it’s done now.

As for what I’ll be doing next - The most likely thing is going to be the Kenzan substories (which is the final Kenzan related thing I’ll do). However, don’t expect new videos on the channel soon… I need to take a break from this sort of thing! 

Keep an eye on the KHHsubs channel for any future projects :)

AWESOME! Finally I can understand how it all ends! Thanks for all the hard work you do over there translating and subbing.

You say don’t expect a new video but we all know Yakuza 5 will consume us soon enough.

khhsubs:

Next Kenzan part is up!

Nice.  L:-D

What better way to wrap up Kenzan month than with the ending credits song from the game.

It’s been an amazing month and the fan outcry for this game has been fantastic

Over the next few days I’ll be putting everything I can together and sending it all to Sega.

Please remember to sign this petition. I know there’s some spelling errors but we’re after numbers. This one already has over 600 signatures. If the fan outcry is enough maybe we can make this happen!

Here’s all of our reasons to bring Kenzan west!

Kenzan signing and launch party.

Graniph and Kenzan shirt collaboration. I think I love the other designs better but the quality on these images makes the design a little hard to make out. Anyone seen a better version?

Does anyone remember when Kenzan was first teased in 2007 this was the only image shown?
For some reason fans though it was going to be Shenmue 3. 
2007 was a weird time for gaming.

Launch PS3 system with Kenzan bundled and custom decals.
In japan Kenzan was good enough to deserve a bundle. Why was it never released here?!

a.t.cafe tie in to Kenzan. At the time they featured promotional art and demo kiosks for patrons to try out Kenzan before release!

I wonder how lucrative Kenzan was since they couldn’t do all of the usual tie ins featured in other Yakuza games?
