Just answer yes

With the release of Yakuza Kiwami 2 underway, Sega has released a new survey regarding the future of the series. Which is exactly what Sega did during the release of  Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

This survey is pretty lengthy. And when I say lengthy, I mean 12-pages long and it asks a few personal questions. Such as your gender, age, employment status and a few others. Eventually, it does get into your gaming tastes, and you overall feel of the release of Yakuza Kiwami 2. Of course, if you haven’t played the game then you wouldn’t be able to answer the survey… or you could, I dunno, say you loved it.

However, the good stuff starts on page 8. This is where Sega asks four very important questions.

  • How interested are you in purchasing remasters/remakes of existing Yakuza games?
  • How interested are you in purchasing new games set in the world of Yakuza?
  • How interested are you in purchasing games created by the Yakuza team in other worlds, like the upcoming Fist of the North Star game?
  • How interested are you in purchasing the various spin-off titles that have never received western release?

For the love of all things Yakuza, please answer a “5”.

There’s a bit more about the series in the rest of the survey, but it’s these four questions that bear all the weight. Sega wants to know if we want more Yakuza and spin-offs. And if you’re a fan of the series, you know you do.

Hopefully, this survey yields some positive results and we’ll see more remasters and new spin-off for CONSOLES and PC, in the future. It definitely can’t hurt and was thanks to surveys like this that both Yakuza Zero and the Yakuza Kiwami titles even got off the ground. Now that series has attracted a huge following the West, I’m sure we’ll see more titles making their way over. Besides, who can resist the zaniness that the Yakuza games provide? Oh and that combat, that sweet and glorious combat.

For now, make sure you check ou Yakuza Kiwami 2. Also, if you haven’t checked out our review you can do so here
