That's so easy to say now, but it was far from the case after Yakuza: Dead Souls bombed. Those were... dark times. :cry:

It was pretty much this. Along with announcement of the game having dual VA tracks.

People who say yawn to Yakuza, you make me sad.

As SoK said, there was good time where non Japanese players didn't have much. I actually gave up hope when there was no info on international Yakuza 5 release for ages.

Actor for one of the characters in Judgment got arrested for drug charges related to the use of cocaine and so Sega has pulled sales and shipment of the game, taken down the site, and scrubbed all tweets for it. I imagine this is now going to be put back into dev to rework the game to remove said character. It's unclear how this is going to affect the Western release, but as drugs are a huge thing in Japan I imagine they'll not take the chance of having any connection to him at all and remove him from all versions.
