Ryu ga Gotoku: OF THE END English localization discussed, not confirmed


Daisuke Sato, one of the more prolific figures of the recently formed Ryu ga Gotoku Studio and currently directing Binary Domain has commented on a possible English language release of Ryu ga Gotoku OF THE END, a spinoff title known as the Yakuza series outside of Japan.

“For the western version of Yakuza: Of the End — if that’s going to happen, then we will tweak the controls, to be closer to other western shooting franchises.”

Unlike Binary Domain, which features controls similar to many first and third person shooters where the camera controls also focus on where your weapon can attack, Ryu ga Gotoku: OF THE END is largely played with one analog stick. Games released outside of Japan with similar controls have been poorly received largely due to the confusion of players who are not used to this setup.

This is no solid confirmation on an international release, however. If it were to be released outside of Japan, it may even rest on how well Binary Domain is received.

The PlayStation 3 exclusive Ryu ga Gotoku: OF THE END was released in Japan earlier this year to high reviews and sales.
