Yakuza J-Drama Gets a Second Season

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Feb 13, 2012 in Japanese TV, Videogames |


Here in the West, Sega’s Yakuza series is considered a bit niche, but that hasn’t kept its fans from falling in love with it. When Sega of America decided to skimp with their localizations, fans were passionately vocal in their opposition. In Japan however, the series has been so successful that it’s led to two films by acclaimed cult-director Takeshi Miike, and a television drama based on the PSP spin-off Yakuza: Black Panther. This April, the drama returns with a second season based on the upcoming sequel.

While Sega never officially released the first PSP spin-off here in the West, I had the fortune to play an extended demo at Tokyo Game Show a few years back and really enjoyed it. I’m not sure if Sega ever plans on officially translating the titles, but I’m told there is a fan translation floating around the net. However, if you’er like me and more interested in the actual story, you can probably skip the games and catch the drama. If you need to know where to download it, start here. Just note, nobody’s subbed it yet.
