      This. True Yakuza fans are sick and tired of Kiryu.

        You cannot be a "true fan of <X>" while at the same time being tired of X. That is quite literally not how it works.
        The protagonist of any given series IS the series.

    unfortunately yakuza 8 is both turn based and keeping ichiban, with judgment most likely not continuing let's hope rgg has a new action title in the works

      Source? Didn't they just release Judgment 2 a few months ago? I know that because I got PS5 Judgment for pennies when it dropped.

        it came out last year, the talent agency representing yagami is preventing sega from release judgment to pc because they are insane jap boomers who covet their talent. sega had a falling out with them and judgment 3 is probably not going to happen.

          Sega is pissed that the agency of the actor they are capturing for the protagonist is blocking them from porting the games to PC. That's why they don't want to continue with the series.

          >Agency doesn't want PC ports because their actor's model can be ripped for porn, advertisements, controversial videos etc.
          >Anons ripped his model from PS4 and had him getting dicked and sent it to the agency anyway

            they have diginty to not put their game characters in non gaming machines, they knew pc gays will ruin it, but who can explain it to sega?

              What does the west have to do with this? This is entirely a problem with a Japanese talent agency.

              I wonder why they didn't try to use a different actor for Judgement after that agency had a heart attack over a PC version. Was it a legal thing, or was that version of the character that important?
              They've switched up characters before.

              or was that version of the character that important?
              Takuya Kimura is fucking huge in Japan. In fact, he's probably the biggest selling point of the game over there. Yeah, they've switched up characters before, but the MAIN GUY? Never.

          stupid reason to kill the series. the games don't even sell well on pc. and judgment cleared a million without it.

    Kiryu is done. You're getting Ichi or another new guy for the foreseeable future, I can't see the series ever going back to a brawler if they already changed it up this much and it didn't backfire on them

    Considering they just told us they're finishing the story and we have in-development screenshots coming out just a few weeks ago I'd say probably November or December if they do it this year, February or March if they do it next year. It already seems close to being done.

    After Kiryu fucked up raising Haruka he deserves to be retired.

      The actor itself really likes the series and is cool with sega + he is a popular actor to begin with so it probably wouldn't be easy to replace him.

      Kimura is the main reason it sells in Japan. He's a massive name in the entertainment industry. This is like making a James Bond game with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and then on the third game it's Gary Powell instead.
      Replacing Kimura isn't as simple as doing someone like Hamura or Tanimura. They're effectively side characters. Hamura was in a handful of cutscenes and regular interactions at best and nothing else. Tanimura had one-fourth of a part in one game that's the shortest of all the parts and he doesn't even voice a lot of substories.

      Replacing Kimura would require you to redo all the cutscenes, potentially redo all the disguises, voice the entire game including substories all over again, and so on just for one specific platform. You'd have to do this with every future release too. Yeah, they could offer not-Yagami for the people on console as an optional bonus download sort of like how they rereleased 7 with the DLC in Japan with the English dub, but I doubt it's worth it for just the PC market to justify effectively redoing an entire game's worth of content over again.

    This is so much worse than Rodimus Prime.
    Ichiban looks like a complete knacker.
    Pure anti-dimes.

    supposedly Yakuza would follow both Ichiban and Yagami, both continuing the turn-based and action styles

    why did they intentionally MISSPELL "Judgement"?

    • 2 weeks ago

      They didn't. Judgment is how it's spelled in court and Yagami is a lawyer.
