The sequels didn't get dubbed? I really liked the first game and actually bought yakuza 2 used for $25 years ago and never played through it because of it not having a dub. I mean are they not the only NA games that are Japanese audio with subtitles?

i see what you mean, i didnt play part 2 cause they got rid of the english, but then i played 3, then 4, then of the end, then 5, but never went back to part 2. i hate how only 1 game was english, but after a while of hearing everyone not in english, i didnt mind that much. its not like the voice acting is bad at all, i say give it another chance, cause the stories are really good.

A better phrased question would be: "Who else stopped playing the Yakuza series because the sequels didn't get dubbed?" Because it's highly improbable that you're ever the only one and the question invites ridicule.

I don't see the point of not playing a game because it doesn't have a dub, unless you're not capable of or prevented from reading subtitles. Not being able to read fast enough to keep up is a possible explanation.

And no, they are not the only NA games that are Japanese audio with subtitles.

Yakuza 2 is my favorite game in the series. Then there's 3, 4, Dead Souls (spin off and non canon), Japan only Kenzan and 5 for now.

Why the **** would you want to hear Japanese people speak English?

The voice acting for the first game was really good. I don't watch anime with subs and it was and still is a big deal that they didn't do English audio for the sequels to me. However I'm gonna play the games anyways now. What other NA games have only Japanese audio though?

I wish the PSP Yakuza Black Panther games were localized....


Also TC, Fist of the North Star 2, Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, Warriors Orochi 2, Agarest War have Japanese dialogue - English subtitles....

We didnt need this dubbed, when the first game came out we were just given that English dubbed version, but the Japanese voices are just better.

I wished the sequels got dubbed just to hear Mark Hamill again.
