Was this newly added Transsexual mission in Yakuza 3 remastered on PS4 in the original PS3 game??

Gender identity disorder? gender reassignment surgery? what the hell is going on?

Was this really in the original Japanese game that came out in 2009? i remember playing the localized PS3 version and i don't remember seeing this mission in the game, i looked everywhere to confirm if this mission was in the Japanese version but i found nothing, what do you guys think?




The language used in this mission makes me suspect that it was written entirely by the Western localizers since they love to change things to push their agenda



If this mission is indeed in the original Japanese Yakuza 3 game then i don't have any problem with it since it was made by the game creators and i respect their vision, i just hate when localizers change shit in the game like if they made it themselves.

I cant say since Yakuza 3 is the one game I skip since the Western versions are all shit but that dialogue sounds completely off.

Doesn't ring a bell but it has been a long time since I played Y3, and that looks like a sidequest too.
Though it doesn't exactly seem like something that the Yakuza franchise would shy away from....but the wording of the dialog does sound very 2019.

Yes, and the storyline is based off a real life transgender woman named Ayana Tsubaki, who is semi-famous/Internet famous in the gaming sphere mostly. She published a book about her experiences growing up trans in Japan that did quite well. I’ve met her IRL once and she was super cool/humble.

I see a lot of words but i don't see a link to the proof that this was in the original PS3 game.

Google it, then? I played the original Japanese release on PS3 and remember the scene. Ayana being featured as a semi-fictional character in the game was a part of the PR campaign for Ryu3.

I highly doubt the dialogue is the same. They changed the rape line so why not this too?
It's likely that this was added for the remaster. The mission seems to be the same in the Japanese version. This isn't the same as the rape thing.




Ayana is also the co-host of Sega Raw.

I know that she is in the game dude, i want a proof that the cringy SJW dialogue was in the game too.
A subquest about a trans woman ordeals, likely added for the remaster, is going to have transwoman dialogue.

Fucking cringe-worthy that you characterize someone explaining their experience of transitioning as “SJW dialogue.” I assure you the content was in the original Japanese release from a decade ago. Sorry not sorry to ruin your image of an ultra-conservative glorious Nippon, anime avatar.

Anybody know if Yakuza 5 is still available to purchase on PS3?

Do either of you understand japanese? No? That's what I thought. Even if the mission was in the original (which is 100% believable) I'm sure it wasn't written by some 2019 california liberal.

Then learn Japanese and watch the video above.

You’re fucking pathetic and I usually ignore your hateful and paranoid garbage that you bandy around on this forum, but yes, actually, I am fluent in Japanese, which you’d think you would be able to put together considering I just said I played the original Japanese release at launch.

Sounds like it was rewritten in 2019... and remember who their Localization head is? We had a thread on it.

One of you is not telling the truth.

I just want to know if it was newly added so i can cancel my pre-order of this fucking collection.

So you are lying, that's a footage from the PS4 version.

Why don't you learn it instead of defending something you don't understand? I guess nobody here can even argue since we have no idea what they're actually saying.

No I understand glorius nihon and that's not what they say at all. I played the original japanese version at launch while my cock was in my 10/10 japanese gf.

Yep, Yakuza 4 and 5 you can get on PSN.

Yakuza 3 is still disc-only tho.
Thanks. I already own 3 and 4 but never bought 5 since it was digital only. Guess I'll have to now.

I can't understand anything, are you trying to tell me that they say the words "Gender identity disorder" and "gender reassignment surgery"?

Nah, i don't think a Japanese game from 2009 will include these words.
Yes. 性同一性障害 and 性別適合手術, respectively, to be specific.

I really don’t care if you want to let your hate for anything that doesn’t fit your world view blind you, but it’s in there. Question answered. Go find another game to accuse of having a hidden western SJW agenda.

Did you just use google translate to get these words in Japanese lol

I can't see these Kanji words anywhere in the video you posted.

Probably because you can’t fucking read by your own admission. Timestamp of 3:35 for the first one. Find the other one on your own. I’m done wasting time with your disingenuous garbage.
You schooled people here so many times, kudos to you. As you can see the truth doesn't stop anyone from closing their eyes, ears and going la la la la la la la - what I want to think is right despite your stupid video proof - you're fake news and a filthy liar - you probably doctored that video in 2009 in anticipation for this thread - la la la la la la!

I can't believe they're still showing enough stupidity to call you out after being continually proven so damn wrong. It's not like you're telling anyone to stop being a sorry excuse for a human being, people just have to switch from hating the translators and boycotting the english release to hating the original game and boycotting it, lol. I don't get it.

He didn't prove shit, he just posted a video with Japanese text and posted the Japanese words that he got from google translate to prove it??

No offence but we need someone who understands Japanese and not happens to be also an SJW like Z Zefah here.

He freaking time stamped it, 性同一性障害 is right there on the PS3 video @ 3:35, and since he typed the words for our benefit, We/YOU can use google translate to see it's the same damn words. Stop being dumb! All you have to do is hate the original game as SJW rather than the translator! Lol!

"Stop being dumb, just read the kanji in the video dude"

I think you are the dumb one here.

You realize the dude you're quoting originally posted a joke about the game writers being "vERAfied" before editing in that screenshot and translation after realizing the dialogue existed in the original, right? You're straight up hating on someone who you would have moments ago given a thumbs up and a laugh of agreement while you plug your ears and close your eyes to reality.

I know I said I was done with you, but after this nonsense, I had to take a peak at your post history, and holy shit. Get a fucking grip on reality man. All you do is rail on stuff like this in just about every post you make. You're going to have an aneurysm seeing SJW boogeyman everywhere you look. Get outside and try to live a normal life for a few hours. I'd have called you a troll, but I think you're actually serious and that just makes it all really sad.

"Stop being dumb, just read the kanji in the video dude"

I think you are the dumb one here.
I mean, you're the one who claimed the Kanji were not in the video despite moments earlier admitting that you can't read Japanese... Is basic pattern recognition also beyond your capabilities? You seem to be demanding that people somehow make you understand Japanese in order to recognize the truth of things...

You don't read the kanji dumbo, you compare the squiggly lines he typed to the squiggly lines in the video at 3:35, see they are identical, copy paste what he typed in google translate yourself and see that those words are indeed used in a 2009 PS3 video game from Japan as you doubted. WTF?!

Are you telling me that if you didn't speak English you wouldn't be able to tell if these lines are identical? SERIOUSLY? That's your whole argument here?! The guy literally destroyed every dumb thing you have written, just stop! All you have to do is think Yakuza 3, not its translation, has SJW trash!

Ayana Tsubaki is a godess. And no she wasn't in the original Western release of the game. Y3 had a lot of content that was removed unfortunately.

Why do SJWs always look at the post history of the member they are arguing with?

Sorry, they all look the same to me but i will take your word for it, i'm actually glad and really happy that i was wrong on this one since Yakuza games are my favorite game series and i really wanted to complete my collection with the last three games in the franchise.

Mods close the thread please.
