Yakuza, Virtua Fighter and Sonic costumes Announced for Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Collaboration costumes for the upcoming Persona Dancing games have been announced at SEGA Fes – turns out the recent poll on the matter was a red herring, as all the listed series are getting represented!

Persona 3 Dancing will receive costumes based on Virtua Fighter, whereas Persona 5 Dancing will receive costumes based on Yakuza. The latter is with the exception of Morgana, Persona 5’s adorable kitty mascot; he’ll be getting a Sonic outfit, because of course! These costumes will be DLC – there’s currently no release date.

There’s still no word on a Western release for these titles – let’s hope we hear something soon!

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Coming West, Releases August 28th 2018 for PS4

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

With Yakuza 6 on the way, and last year’s Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami still relatively fresh on our minds, SEGA has continued the Yakuza series love with the announcement that Yakuza Kiwami 2 (a remake of Yakuza 2 for PS4, in the shiny new Dragon Engine) is coming West. And you won’t be waiting long either, as it’s out on August 28th!

As the official description from SEGA eloquently puts it:

It’s been a full year since Kazuma Kiryu took his leave from the world of the Yakuza during the events of Yakuza Kiwami. Fate, however, has other things in mind for the legendary Dragon of Dojima, and Kiryu finds himself back on the front lines of a potential all-out war.

The game will also receive a steelbook edition, as has basically become tradition for the series now. It’ll be a limited edition though; time to get those pre-orders in!

Yakuza 6 Demo Removed from US Playstation Store Due to Full Game Unlock Exploit

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The Yakuza 6 demo has been removed from the US Playstation store after some users found an exploit to allow them to play the full game.

The demo itself is 36.53gb in size and actually contains all the data for the full game, except the demo was designed to lock players into a small portion of the game with their progress being carried over to the full game on release day (17th of April 2018).

The full game exploit appears to be exclusive to the American version of the demo as the demo is currently still available on the UK and Australian Playstation store-fronts. If this changes then we will be sure to update this story.
