Yakuza: Kiwami 2 survey suggests Sega considering Yakuza remaster and spin-off localizations

There is hope for Ishin and Kenzan yet.

Yakuza: Ishin!

An official Sega survey for Yakuza: Kiwami 2 suggests the company is considering localizations of the Yakuza remasters and spin-offs Yakuza: Ishin! and Yakuza: Kenzan!

In Japan, a PlayStation 4 remaster of Yakuza 3 was recently released, with plans for a Yakuza 4 remaster this fall and Yakuza 5 remaster in spring 2019. As for the spin-offs, Yakuza: Ishin! is a spin-off set during the Bakumatsu period released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in February 2014. Yakuza: Kenzan! is a spin-off set during the Edo period released for PlayStation 3 in 2008.

Here are the questions from the survey:

  • How interested are you in purchasing remasters/remakes of existing Yakuza games?
  • How interested are you in purchasing new games set in the world of Yakuza?
  • How interested are you in purchasing games created by the Yakuza team in other worlds, like the upcoming Fist of the North Star game?
  • How interested are you in purchasing the various spin-off titles that have never received western release?

Yakuza: Kiwami 2 launched for PlayStation 4 in the Americas and Europe today.
