Yakuza: Of the End: “If” it were localized, the controls would be tweaked for westerners

Thursday, 15th September 2011 15:11 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Yakuza 3 director, Daisuke Sato, has said if Yakuza: Of the End were to be localized in Europe and North America, the controls would be changed around a bit.

Speaking at TGS, Sato, who is also the director for Binary Domain, said: “For the western version of Yakuza: Of the End — if that’s going to happen, then we will tweak the controls, to be closer to other western shooting franchises.”

However, Sato never said if there were any plans to bring the title west or not, but it would be odd if SEGA didn’t didn’t release it in the west as it did with the other Yakuza titles. The exception being Yakuza Kenzan and Black Panther, which were spin offs of the main series.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Localise Kenzan you slackers!

    And don’t forget Steph, Black Panther never got released over here either. They can bloody well localise that too!

    We already have enough zombie shooters over here.

    Seriously! What about Kenzan! I want more Samurai-Free-Roam Games. Way of the Samurai is not enough.

    Hmmmm…hopefully, there will be an option for more Japanese controls. It was very disorientating the change in controls from the previous Metal Gear Solid games to MGS4, which also used a more Western control scheme.
