just a reminder, vote with your wallets. You want these games to come west of japan, GO GET YAKUZA 5 FROM PSN. Even if its digital, It still shows interest outside japan. Dont give that DIgital bullshit excuse, GO GET IT.

I'm really excited, I have to play through Zero soon so I can move on to Y1 remake in January.

Also 6 will be something awesome with last gen not holding it back.

Listen to this man.

I'd take these over Yakuza 0, not that I don't want to play 0. If any market researchers read this post, hear us now.

Is it okay to start begging for localization yet? Not just six, but I would really love the first games remake.
Well buying Y5 would be your best bet.

I'm just afraid that the backlog is too much.

* Yakuza 5 (in progress)
* Yakuza Ishin
* Yakuza Zero
* Yakuza Kiwami
* Yakuza 6

It could be they will just jump to 6 if they decide to continue localizing, in case 5 sells enough.

Cross gen is finally dying

I'm so happy
Yep! No more paying more or the same for a knee-capped up-port! :D

I'm definitely interested in Yakuza 6, I have 1-5 on PS3 and Ishin! and 0 for PS4. I don't know if I can justify a rebuy on the first game though, unless it's discounted (which it likely will not be, if it's a full remake).

Well I hope to see both games localized, but suppose the contention of this is that entirely depends on the digital sales of Yakuza 5 in the West.

It was the overall poor sales of the games in the West in the earlier releases of physical installments that led to this unfortunate situation in the first place.

Hopefully things will turn around.

Also I think a Yakuza 1 remake is a good time, since Yakuza 0 is supposedly the origin story, having things come full circle back to the very first game on the PS4 makes sense. And with Yakuza 6 the series continues.

Unfortunately all new Yakuza games are by default Japan only, if Y5 manages to sell enough (can't say well, because that's not really happening) in the west then they might continue localizing.

I'm pretty sure that they will jump to 6
With luck we get that one in 2018

I broke my one rule of never buying a digital copy of anything for over $25 for this game. I'd really wish you could order in advance to get a physical copy shipped to you, but I'll buy them digital if that's the only way.

I need PSN gifting. I will force it on people if I have to.
I have a couple of people in mind to whom I'd gift it given the opportunity.

I'm pretty sure that they will jump to 6

If there's ever a Yakuza game in the west after 5, it will probably be 6, yeah. Kiwani or Zero would be next on the probability list I guess.
