Yakuza Zero Gets Gameplay and Sexy Ladies in Taipei; Producer Courts Asia as Japanese Games Struggle in the US

With Taipei Game Show coming to an end, we get to see one more stage presentation for Sega’s Yakuza Zero, that Dazzled the crowds with sexy (real life) ladies and gameplay.

The gameplay videos, displayed directly on the stage’s large screens, focused on combat, while the ladies, who actually acted in the game, focused on charming the attendees.

In addition to this, Producer Toshihiro Nagoshi posted on his blog today, commenting on the success of the game’s presentation.

Nagoshi-san commented that in Taipei the console market is expanding steadily, and among gamers there there are many Japaniphiles. He also added that perhaps the Asian markets can become a pillar of the business for Japanese games, that struggle in the west.

You can check out the videos below (courtesy of YouTube user RedDragoN Du), while we hope that the focus on the Asian market won’t push Japanese developers to forget about English localization.  After trying Yakuza Zero in Tokyo, all I can say is that I absolutely need to play it.
