A movement to get Yakuza Ishin localized!


Hello, first of I would like to start by saying this is my first ever blog, so I'm sorry if there are issues, but I'm just way too passionate about the Yakuza series to stay quiet any longer!

What is Yakuza Ishin?

Yakuza Ishin (in Japan known as Ryo Ga Gotoku: Ishin) is a spinoff of the mainline Yakuza games, taking place in Edo period Japan, based on real history, but the uniqueness of it is, that every face and more or less their personalities are taken straight from the mainline Yakuza games! For example, the main character: Sakamoto Ryoma looks and acts like Kiryu, while his best friend Okada Izou looks and acts like Nishiki. The game is a Yakuza game through and through with a deep, story line, awesome combat (now mainly focusing on Sword fighting) and the quality activities you've come to expect from a Yakuza game like Karaoke.

The Issue

Fans of the series wanted to get this game in English ever since it was originally released in Japan a few years ago, but sadly it never seemed to get the localization it deserves with SEGA making excuses like: "It would be hard to understand for Foreigners"...


The Solution

Because the series is now bigger than ever here in the West, recently fans have started a Twitter hashtag called #SaveIshin and a Petition Save Ishin to get this awesome game localized! This might genuinely be our only hope to ever see the light of day for this game here, so on the behalf of the whole community of passionate fans, I ask you that you join our cause and sign the petition! https://www.change.org/p/sega-localize-yakuza-ishin-saveishin (Also if there are any problems with the photos or the design of the blog, I'm sorry. ;w; )

- "The Yakuza game, it's not like boxing. The man who gets beat down isn't the loser. The guy who can't tough it out to the end, he's the one who loses."
