    Due to a large number of chatter and reactions to the recent influx of Yakuza information, I decided to make a thread for everyones favorite brawler/Tokyo simulator
    For those that are unfamiliar, Yakuza is a video game series where you (usually) play as Kazuma Kiryu, a tough as nails member of the Yakuza who deals with intrigue and gang politics, usually while beating the crap out of an army of goons.
    However, in sidequests, things get weird. I'm talking stuff about fighting a bunch of Yakuza in diapers, punching a pair of tigers in the face, and having a crazy dude with an eyepatch follow you around.
    It's a very charming and fun game series you should give a try if you own a Playstation system.

    In fact, Yakuza Kiwami, a remake of the first game, releases this Tuesday (August 29th, 2017), so nows a perfect time to start! (There's also Yakuza 0, a prequel.)

    Anyway, most recently, a TON of Yakuza information was released.
    Yakuza 2 will be getting a remake in the form of Yakuza 2 Kiwami
    There will be a brand new Yakuza with a new protagonist called "Shin Yakuza"
    As well as a Mobile (and PC ) Game called Yakuza Online
    There is also Fist of the North Star by the Yakuza team, but I'm not sure if discussion of that will be pertinent to this thread
    A thread of all the annoucements is contained here

    So yeah, discuss Yakuza here, be it your playthrough of Kiwami, or any of the PS3-era games, or if you just really wannt Yakuza Ishin and the other Feudal Yakuza games to come to the US

    I'm glad they're fleshing his character out more in the Y2 remake because if they just kept the same story, some scenes with him in the original Y2 would make no sense givin with what happened in Y0.

    It's like what they did with Nishikiyama in the Y1 remake. They added more scenes to expand his character more.

    Also, yay a Yakuza thread.

    Oh right, I figured I might as well post this funny bit of trivia
    The "Premium" Edition of Yakuza 6 is open for preorders.
    Of course, it comes with a bog standard Artbook, which is good, then you get to the eccentric add-ons.
    You also get:
    Two Bar Glasses
    Two Coasters
    Two "Ice Stones" (usually used with WHISKEY)
    Seriously

    I wanted to preorder for the Artbook, but I'll have to pass, I'm not a drinking person, and I feel I'd be doing them a disservice if I put anything other than Whiskey in those glasses.

    So it turns out I got some information wrong.
    There is currently NOT a Shin Yakuza, but the protagonist revealed in the video will be the new protagonist, and he will debut in Yakuza Online.

    Fun fact:

    The new protaigonist has the same voice actor as Nishki.

    Damn, that’s a nice steelbook!

    But, yeah. No surprise that Kiwami 2 is coming to the West. The devs said that Kiwami 2 got made almost SOLELY because of how well 0 and Kiwami 1 did in the West.
