            Ishin bonus bluray is just gonna be extra topping on my Yakuza 5 cake anyhow.

    Perfect time for a localization, guys…

    • TheRequiem95

      I agree. I don’t need voice acting. Just subtitle it.

  • James Williams

    How about you bring this and HD over here?
    I’d actually buy digital for this goddamn game!

  • Sperium3000

    Man, if nothing else, this is one heck of an incentive to learning Japanese…

    I really thought this would be the announcement of the localization that everyone has been waiting for.

    I am playing the japanese version now and the game is awesome.
