Sega Shuts Down Nearly All “Yakuza” Sites In The US

Just weeks after Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi told Edge neither Yakuza 5 nor the recently announced PS4 Japanese launch title Yakuza: Isshin would likely ever reach US shores, Sega of America has shut down every website domain related to the series, with the exception of the oddball zombie apocalypse spinoff Yakuza: Dead Souls. (And that site is likely not long for this world either.)

If you were still holding out hope that Sega still has a stake in the series here in the West, I think this latest disavowment means it’s time to extinguish that candle of hope and move on with our lives. So raise a glass of saké and look back fondly on the goofy Japanese ridiculousness of surreptitious-cleavage-peeping-table-tennis.

So long, Yakuza. We’ll always have Kamurocho.
