    Who do we talk to about this getting localized?

    • Wodki

      Sega

      • Cheesy12

        No no no, that obviously doesn’t work ;P

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          If the games had sold well it would work .

          • brwcrw

            Seeing as they brought over the first 4, with even Dead Souls making it over, sales really couldn’t have been that bad.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Seeing as how they didn’t bring over 5 or the spin i think so. Considering the niche argument is off the table since they did bring over project diva

          • brwcrw

            The Sega CCO has said they didn’t bring over 5 because their team is focused on getting this game out as a PS4 launch title. He even said he was interested in releasing this outside of Japan if they could get the funds/man power to do so.

            yukuza 5 was made in 2012.

          • brwcrw

            Yes, and? Its been out for a little more than a year, and Im sure they’ve been working on Restoration for most, if not all of that time.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            I’m sure they’ve been working on restoration before 5 that really doesn’t explain why the western localization didn’t come over however.
            If he didn’t even have “Yep it’s coming over to you guys” yet why would localizing the game hinder the game’s develop in a country it does relatively well in.

            The very end of 2012 (12-6).

            And to be fair, that game is immensely more massive than anything in the series before it.
            It’s simply not an option till Ishin is finished and out the door.

            >>why would localizing the game hinder the game’s develop in a country it does relatively well in.<<

            During the localization process, "final copies" (text, recording, and etc; after editing) are sent back to the developers to program into the game. It may seem meaningless, but it does require resources and time.
            (This, by the way, is the very reason Grand Knights History never saw it's Western release. Even though it was officially announced, and the localization process on XSEED's part, was complete.)
