Yakuza Ishin Proves Pop Rock Was Popular in Feudal Japan

Posted by Sammy Barker

Clock strikes

When the cast of SEGA’s feudal spin-off Yakuza Ishin aren’t smoking pipes or staring forlornly at the sky, they enjoy nothing more than thumbing through their Feeder records and playing air guitar. This launch trailer for the PlayStation 4 iteration of the historical outing proves as much, as it shows the cast listening intently to some touching power pop provided by ONE OK ROCK. Throw us the horns, Kaz—er, Ryoma Sakamoto.

The mention of Feeder just makes me want the game even more, for some reason.

This is so comical. It reminds me of Korean soap operas. How they use the same stock of actors to do the same plot over and over again. It's a first day purchase for me though if it was ever localized.

SEGA has been like an abusive drunk husband to its Western fans, but we still stick with them because of the kids. Anyone who played Dead Souls on the first day knows what I mean.

@Fire-and-Water Problem is the amount of people who want it localised isn't enough. Gamers are infamous for whinging about a game not being released, demanding it is done so and then when it is they don't actually bother buying it so you can't really blame Sega for not doing it.

Horrific advert although I'm sure it went down well in japan. Sega can burn in proverbial hell unless they release it west. Bah.
