Sega Goes Back In Time With PS4 Launch Title Yakuza Ishin

Posted by Damien McFerran

Also coming to PS3 and Vita

Sega's Yakuza series is insanely popular in Japan, and it's getting a spin-off title in the form of Yakuza Ishin — which will be a PS4 launch title in its home territory.

Set in Japan's bloody feudal past, the game showcases the same action we've come to know and love from the series — albeit with swords instead of guns.

Given that Yakuza 5 still hasn't been localised for the west, the chances of seeing Ishin in this part of the world are slim — however, its status as a PS4 launch title could ensure that it makes the leap. It's also coming to the PS3 and PS Vita.

Well technically that is the Japanese PS4 Launch title. 22/2/2014 and all.

Still, the game looked pretty cool. Here's to hoping they localize it.

Like Damien said, hopefully its status as a launch title in Japan helps it come west. I'm still not getting my hopes up, though.

Seriously, I have lost count with how many games are coming to the PS Vita the next 12 months... mind blowing...

I hope Sega bring this over we still didn't get Yakuza 5 and Kenzan and that broke my heart and soul but we can at least get this. My money still saved for 5 but if they can bring this to the states i'll just buy this instead.
