    As a Yakuza fan I’m excited about it too but yeah it’s an old system and with no release date and almost no info on the game except brief tidbits focused on random side stuff. Hard to be excited, I mean I dunno, almost feels like the game’s not even coming out.

    Glad they have delayed it to be honest, good to see Sega take its time to ensure high standards are met.
    I’d rather they delayed it now (same with the new Sonic Boom) and have it well polished rather than to release it half baked filled with bugs and broken mechanics with sub standard programming.
