Sega Has A Free-To-Play Yakuza MMO In The Works, Wants Your Input As To Whether It Should Come West

I'll be honest -- I'd never heard of the Yakuza series before Yakuza 0 launched in North America earlier this year. I watched a few streams and thought it was ... well, interesting.

Thanks to that brief taste of craziness, today's news intrigues me. Sega has just announced the free-to-play Yakuza Online for PC and iOS/Android devices. The game is set after the events of Yakuza 6 and is scheduled for a 2018 launch in Japan.

Will we ever see that game, or a Yakuza 2 remake or Fist of the North Star game that were also announced, get Western localization? That's the question being posed by Sega and Ryu ga Gotoku Studios in a survey. If any of those titles sound like the kind of thing you'd like to see get English (or any other language) localizations, let your voice be heard. Just ... maybe not like this.
