Demian Smith had the (mis)fortune to get a job working as a translator on the very first Yakuza game for the PS2. If you haven’t played it, know that for a game set in Japan and called Yakuza, it wasn’t that Japanese.
Sega is releasing a new Yakuza crime game this month in Japan. This game already has a title – Yakuza: New Chapter Black Panther. The Japanese company has another new Yakuza game. This game doesn’t not have a title.
Pictured here is not adult video actress Rio. That’s Anzu Takizawa, who on her blog says she loves Japanese crime game Ryu Ga Gotoku (Yakuza in the West).
