Alas, the Black Panther line of Yakuza game remains on similar terms to the Ryū ga Gotoku Kenzan! spin-off game for the Yakuza franchise… in that neither has or most probably will ever receive an English localization like the main games in the franchise. Never-the-less, it seems to be a perfect example of why Playstation Portable uptakes are still strong in Japan even with the release of the Playstation Vita… the line-up for the PSP remains promising.
Curious as to how this game will look? In a recent batch of screenshots released by SEGA, it doesn’t feature so much the core gameplay but instead the mini-games and all the other fun bits and pieces that make the Yakuza (or Ryu Ga Gotoku) line of games so unique. Slot Machines… Baseball… Dating Hostesses… Part-time jobs… Bowling… Strip Clubs… all just examples of what you can do in your free time within the game.
