Yakuza of the End could hit the West with different name

[Yakuza: Goro Majima the fantastic]

Of course SEGA can say yes or no on any future Yakuza games being brought over, what with Yakuza 4 coming out very soon. But the guys from Siliconera had a great interview about what it takes to bring Yakuza games to the West. When asked if SEGA would bring over a spin off like Kenzan:

“In terms of the older games, I can really speak to that at the moment. Because currently from the Yakuza franchise we have Black Panther, Kenzan, and now we have Of the End. Which all intents and purposes is a working title for the West, we don’t know what it’s going to be called. I think the possibility is there. We haven’t closed the door on any of those titles. We’re always looking at what might be the next title that will be appropriate for the Western market.” – Yas Noguchi, Senior Producer Yakuza 4

Sounds like ‘Yakuza of the End’ is leaning more towards a yes, since they are already saying it’s a code name in the West or is this just me wanting a game badly?

  1. That would be cool if they packaged all 3 of those games together in one release (maybe not with Black Panther, since it's a different platform).

    I just hope they do more than translations when bringing it to state side.

    I'll tell ya this, Yas has been hanging out on the official Yakuza forum asking people if they could only choose one of the two Yakuza spin-offs to take with them to a desert island, which one would they choose? Which is a rather coy approach to the subject, but he seems to be remaining engaged with the community. So far I think things have been leaning toward Kenzan, from the responses I've read.

    Nice to see them mention Kenzan.
