Expect Tweaked Controls If Yakuza: Of The End Makes It To The West.

Criticised for its archaic controls by a cautious Western audience, we actually rather enjoy the mindless nature of the Japanese franchise's zombie spin-off. But Yakuza 3's director, Daisuke Sato, has said that the game's controls would be tweaked if the game were to get a European or North American release.

“For the western version of Yakuza: Of the End — if that’s going to happen, then we will tweak the controls, to be closer to other western shooting franchises," he said.

Sato wouldn't confirm whether Yakuza: Of The End would make it to the West or not, but we desperately hope it does. The world needs more Yakuza games.
