The game's currently available to pre-order on Sony's digital plaza, but is tagged with a place holder 31st December launch. "Unfortunately, it's a little later than we would've liked, and...

    The real Dragon of Dojima

    A stage show that the editors of this very site would have paid to see purely for the experience, 'Yakuza' obviously ties in to the fantastic action role-playing game series of the same name.

    Gangster's paradise

    Yakuza 6 is being built exclusively for the PlayStation 4, and boy does it show in this first ever video. SEGA debuted the footage during a NicoNico livestream yesterday, and it shows Japanese actor Beat Takeshi's character in all of his new-gen glory.

  • News A New Yakuza Game Is Going to Be Announced at TGS, Start Pleading for Localisation Now

    Please

    Okay, so we're getting Yakuza 5 in the near future, but there's one problem: it's exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Now, before you say it, no, we're not next-gen snobs, but we are worried that when the title inevitably sells close to bugger all, Sony won't bother funding the localisation of another one. And that's going to be a real kicker,...

    Let's not beat around the bush: Sony kind of killed the Dreamcast.

But with the announcement of Shenmue III...

  • News Yakuza 5 May Be the Last PS3 Exclusive You Must Have

    Let's all go to Kamurocho

    We know that a lot of you love your PlayStation 3, but there's no doubt that the device is on its way out.

    Tembo the Badass Elephant should have been ten tons of fun, but instead it's a steaming pile of missed opportunity.

    SEGA's reputation as a game publisher has been all but completely tarnished over the past ten or so years, thanks to a slew of lacklustre Sonic the Hedgehog sequels and an astoundingly poor job at importing Japanese hits to the Western market. The company seems to be trying to turn things around, though. In an interview with...
