Yakuza 6 and Yakuza Kiwami are coming West

We did it folks, we whined about Yakuza games not coming west so much in the last decade that SEGA finally has 3 unreleased Yakuza games coming to English regions. SEGA announced at the PlayStation Experience event that Yakuza 6 and Yakuza Kiwami are coming West. What does this mean? That means we have Yakuza 0, a prequel will be coming in January 2017 with the remake of the first game (Yakuza Kiwami) coming in summer 2017 and Yakuza 6 will tie it up with a early 2018 release date. Never thought i’d say this, but its pretty good being a Yakuza fan right now. I have been following the series since the first game came out in Japan and always supported the franchise when I could.

Yakuza 6 and Yakuza Kiwami are coming west, let that sink into your head. Yeah, I seriously can’t believe. it. Support the titles by giving them a pre-order and saying nice things to SEGA via their social media. After multiple titles bombed, they are still listening to fans. Who will be picking up a copy? Are you excited? let us know in the comments below!

    Are we getting the PS3 version of Yakuza Kiwami as well?

      Considering they aren’t bringing yakuza 0 over for ps3 and its older than kiwami, I would nearly 100% assume no.

      I don’t think so, because in an interview while making the Western version of Yakuza 0, Nagoshi said that from then on the team would focus on making the games for a single platform, PS4, because they felt like the games were coming out better if they put all the time and effort into one version only

    Physical or digital though? That is the question… Either way, exciting news!
