    Why? You got like 7 other games to worry about before playing the lawyer spinoff

    I still like having options. If it's a spinoff that means I can play it by itself without following the other games in order. Just like how Yakuza 7 was a kind of soft reboot of the series.

    Not gonna link Kotaku article, so here's a link to the Japanese article that first ran this story.

    TLDR:
    Sega wants to port Judgement games to PC, but Kimura's (guy playing Yamagi) talent agency doesn't, because Kimura's model could be modded. Judgement might be cancelled after the second game.
    Kimura himself really liked the role and doesn't mind the games being sold on PC.

    Japanese corporate busy bodies are a bunch of detached looneys.

    Johnny's are a particular brand of bone-headed dinosaurs. So, I'm not surprised.

    They pulled this sort of crap with Ultraman Tiga and its lead actor, Hiroshi Nagano. During the show's anniversary, the specials they had notably cut out or edit out said actor even in old episode recaps where the lead actor's character would be.

    I'm hoping Lost Judgment can end the duology conclusively then seeing as there probably won't be a Judgment 3 (unless they pull off an Ichiban for a potential sequel).

    I am nearing the end of Yakuza 7, I am literally right before going into Millenium Tower.... I am not ready for it to end.
    It's kinda funny how the last 3 chapters they just splurged on the direct references and integration of past games. Like 80 to 90% of the story is entirely original characters, plotlines and conflicts and then BAM Kiryu, Kiryu Chan meme guy, bunch of the people whose outfits I can wear for buying the game early, you go back to Kamurocho which is also a huge map, etc.

    Unless the game somehow fucks up really bad on the last stage I can eaisly give it 9/10, easily my favorite game of 2020. Easily my favorite 2020 RPG about being an outlaw in a city covered in neon kanji where you get shot at as the inciting incident and you have quests with stories to do in a map that you can navigate. *wink*wink*

    Man I can't believe how sad Yakuza 7 got in the ending. I was there sitting with manly tears in my eyes all the way through the last confrontation. How did this game do this to me? I still remember the diaper cafe, I defeated the penultimate boss with a ridiculous attack that summons a space satelite with a lazor beam and my Adachi is a Gene Simmons wannabe that bites people as an attack. Why did I get emotional at the end?



    Ok now I am gonna play Yakuza 0, there is a translation patch for it for spanish and the guy is working on the Yakuza 1 Kiwami patch right now so I guess I gotta start with it then, no other choice, I wann stream it, even if I get very low viewership it helps me not let the games pile up lmao.

    I cried the most trying to get Space Harrier CP in 0. There were some other sad moments in the series, but nothing comparable.

    They animated Kasuga's crying face way too well, almost on par with the Breadtracing.

    The delivery of Ichiban's Japanese seiyu and English voice actor are equally amazing at that part. It is one of those times where the dubs are equally top-notch.

    Ichiban's sincere tearful plea is so raw and stirs the right set of emotions in me even after all the time I have spent laughing at the game's many jokes and funny events.

    I personally rank 7's main story among the top tier main stories of the Yakuza games and look forward to future Yakuza games with Ichiban at the helm.

    EDIT: Also, English Lost Judgment trailers

    Probably the right move tbh. Only 3 out of the 10 big entries into the series have english dubs and 2 of those are the judgment spinoffs. I guess yakuza 1 has a dub on ps2 but its fucken awful.
