Reporting in.

Yes I have beaten both Kenzan and Ishin.

I thought Ishin was the only one set in feudal Japan.
I haven't played either though, but I may get to them later. I'm at the end of Yakuza 4 currently. Will play 5 after that.

Yup they two Samurai games.

Kenzan was released in 2008 and was the game in the series for the PS3, had you playing as real life historical Miyamoto Musashi that had the personality and appearance of Kiyru.

Ishin released in 2014 as a launch title for the PS4 in Japan where they place as another real life historical figure Sakamoto Ryoma, that also had the personality and appearance of Kiryu.

I am fully expecting the first Yakuza game for the PS5 to be another Samurai spin off.

Have only finished Zero on my PC, absolutely incredible game.

Now I own the original Yakuza on PS2, which I plan to finish and make my way upwards with the series.

I loved playing Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. It's my favorite of the Yakuza series because I had fantastic time playing it and I didn't want to stop playing as the story had me hooked in anticipation all the way through. I enjoyed the better graphics and not needing the transitional loading screens because of using the Dragon Engine.

The Yakuza series is absolutely brilliant! The game play is fun and has lots of other games to do too.

I love the series so much that I play all extra content to extend before doing the story.

I do love it. Spent around 600! hours across 3, 4, and 5. Fallen behind, but want to start Yakuza 0 soon-ish.

Have you considered the Kiwami remakes in lieu of the PS2 games? Also do you have the western release of Yakuza on PS2 or the Japanese version? The English voice acting in the western release doesn't do the game justice.

My collection will be made solely of the ps4 versions.

Yeah, same. I have little interest in the PS2 versions aside from having watched bits of them on youtube. The PS3 versions are another story, and I plan to buy the remasters on PS4.

western and I'm a sucker for weird english VA, so it adds to the charm for me, regardless I do plan on getting the Kiwami versions, just that if I have an easy way of experiencing the original before a remake, I like to jump on that.

I would buy the ps2 versions for cheap but want to make my yakuza ps4 special box :)

Different strokes. But yes some VA are so comically bad that they have their value. But on here I’m kinda Puritan. Since there isn’t Portuguese dub or sub then jap plus eng sub.
