SEGA, Sony Knee Deep in Yakuza 5 Localisation for PS3

Punch out

Yakuza 5 is due out later this year for the PlayStation 3, a whopping three years after its release in Japan.

Yakuza 5 Busting Bad Guys on PS3 in Fall 2015

King Kazuma

Yakuza 5 is a massive game that's going to take time to translate, but Sony hasn't forgotten that it promised to bring the release overseas. While the PlayStation 3 may be starting to feel like old news these days, we're still looking forward to continuing Kazuma Kiryu's story – even if we will have to dust off the aging machine...

How Does Pokémon  Maker Game Freak's PS4 Debut Fare?

We take Tembo the Badass Elephant for a ride

Side-scrollers are dime a dozen in this current digital age. The old-school genre may have fallen out of favour following the PSone's introduction of new-fangled polygons, but the vibrant indie development scene has ensured that 2D platformers are fashionable again – even if they tend to rival Early...

SEGA Classics to Receive Vinyl Soundtracks

What year is it?

SEGA smashes Shenmue and Streets of Rage are set to receive special edition vinyl soundtracks this September – and just so you don't panic, you're definitely still reading this in 2015. London-based record label Data Discs will be handling the uber-limited LPs. We imagine that the firm's based in Shoreditch and only hires...

No, Shenmue III Ain't Looking for Sailors on PS4

Don't you know fakes are way uncool?

Remember the day the snow turned to rain? Yeah, sounds like a tall tale to us – a bit like this supposed Shenmue leak. The rumour appears to stem from a Japanese site, but has been picked up by some regional variants of IGN – and now we're here to tell you why it's more rubbish than Disc Four of the...

SEGA's Not Even Bothering Having a Booth at E3 2015

Shen-boo

We all love PlayStation here at Push Square Towers, but we have a soft spot for SEGA's systems of old, too. Growing up in the UK, both the Master System and the Mega Drive were arguably more popular than their Nintendo rivals – and while we'll gleefully admit that the Saturn deserved to get trounced by the PSone, the Dreamcast certainly...

Could Creative Assembly Be Crafting Alien: Isolation 2 for PS4?

"Please, sir – can I have some Xenomorph?"

After that groan-inducing ending, Creative Assembly always seemed keen on giving us another dose of Alien: Isolation – and a selection of job postings on its website suggest that the release's titular Xenomorph could be coming back for more. One online multiplayer position in particular notes that the...

This Yakuza Zero Commercial Has Got It All and More

TGI Friday

Fledgling marketing managers take note: this is how you sell a video game. Yakuza Zero's overseas advertisement may only have 15 seconds to work with, but it crams bad fashion, brutal beat downs, and Super Hang-On all into its reduced running time. If this doesn't make you want to own Kazuma Kiryu's latest, you're not human.

Talk of the town

While we're still waiting patiently for Yakuza 5's launch here in the West, the lucky folks over in Japan are preparing themselves for the release of Yakuza Zero – an eighties themed prequel which aims to tell series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu's origin story.

Alien: Isolation Stalks BAFTA Games Awards Success

Let 'er Ripley

Given that it was developed in the humble West Sussex town of Horsham, it's no surprise to see Alien: Isolation lead the charge at this year's BAFTA Games Awards. While the event always has a global presence, it tends to champion British titles above all else, and that's clear with the aforementioned survival horror scoring six...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Yakuza 4?

We look back at this month's PlayStation Plus freebie

Every time that we mention Yakuza 4, or indeed, the Yakuza series as a whole, there's always at least one person who chirps in and says that they've never played it – and in the worst case scenarios, that they've never even heard of it. Well, it's time to educate yourself, because Yakuza 4 is...

Kamurocho calling

If you're a regular Push Square reader, then you'll know that we're massive fans of the Yakuza franchise. A drama-filled series that plays a lot like an action RPG, the games explore stories that are entwined in the underbelly of one of Japan's seediest fictional districts. Yakuza Zero is the latest instalment, and after watching...

You Need to Complete Quick-Time Events in Yakuza Zero to Answer Telephones

New video is NSFW

It's not often that we watch a 19-minute trailer for a game and are left gob-smacked by a mere 60 seconds of it, but that's what's happened with Yakuza Zero's latest video. As you've probably guessed from the headline, series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu will have to complete a quick-time event to properly answer a telephone, and...
