Because of idiot like this that doesn't understand the game and will bash it and complain about it if it comes out. (like IGN on Yakuza 4)

Unless he is lying, those sound like legit complaints.

yakuza will always be a niche series.

-japanese only Voice acting
-quirky elements
-story focused

I love the hell out of it but it will never be a big hit in the west where the average gamer likes gears of wars, shooting games and the like.

for the average consumer yes. Yakuzas story is told in a JRPG way with lots of cutscenes. I like that it tells a good story, but the majority of people seem to dislike games with lots of cutscenes :(

They released Yakuza 1-4 in North America, why would they stop now with their biggest game yet?

Oh well the West doesn't deserve great Japanese games anymore anyways. All they care about are pewpew PAAGGs, and if someone dares mention a Japanese game they get called weeaboos. With this attitude the Japanese companies won't even care about your market anymore. You ppl caused this.
