Operation Rainfall have partnered with Language Automation, Inc., (LAI), a company that specializes in game localization. LAI has worked with Sega in the past will offer discount localization services on whichever game has the most votes and will push each company to localize that specific project!
If you want Yakuza 5 localised this is the best chance you could hope for to make your voice heard!
In order to show these companies that there is a legitimate demand for these games that shows these games will sell, we need people to vote. The more votes these games get, the more likely the games will be localized. If there are few to zero votes, the chances will not be good. So spread the word, talk to people, share the links on Facebook and Twitter. Together, we can do something proactive to ensure the games we want to see are being localized. This is something consumers have never had the chance to do before!
Right now Yakuza 5 is lagging behind. While I LOVE the Valkyria Chronicles series it’s a damn shame Yakuza 5 isn’t in the lead! Cast your vote and leave a comment on why you voted for Yakuza 5. Show them we want this game and build a buzz in the comments.
