Producer Daisuke Sato shared interesting comments regarding a localization and remake for Japan exclusive Yakuza Kenzan and Ishin. It looks like Yakuza Kenzan and Ishin could get a localization in the future, but in the form of a new remake.
Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan! was the first ever Yakuza game for PS3, released on March 6, 2008, exclusively in Japan.
Daisuke Sato, one of the producers of the Yakuza series, said he’d definitely love to see both titles localized.
The next game in the Yakuza series is in development.
