    I personally think the Florist really should be there instead of Dead Souls Ryuji. Ryuji doesn't really have daddy energy anyway.

    They should really work on releasing/remaking some of the spinoffs. The two Samurai games are pretty fun and have unique mechanics, plus there's not that many samurai games to begin with. Black Panther ( PSP, two games) is also fun as fuck, but they forgot it exists.

    There are at least English-subtitled playthroughs of them on Youtube.

    Ah yeah, Panther was good fun. It had a sequel but I never got my hands on it. I think that counts as the only Yakuza game I haven’t played.

    I vaguely remember watching the TV drama 10 or so years ago too.

    Those Black Panther games are made by AKI/syn Sophia, the developers the N64 wrestling games, some crazy Ultimate Muscle games, and Def Jam Fight for NY. It's too bad they never got to do something like them on something other than a portable system, those were their last action games.

    Their wrestling games basically seem to be the foundation of Yakuza, as well as most 3D beat em ups since like 1998.

    This is arguably the progenitor of Yakuza, since Nagoshi was involved with it as well.

    Yeah, SpikeOut would fall into that "as well as most 3D beat em ups since like 1998" thing I said. You've got Die Hard Arcade/Dynamite Deka in '96 (this would also be the first year AKI would release a wresling game) which is still rooted more in 2D beat 'em ups than what will come later, then like a couple years later you've got stuff like SpikeOut and Ehrgeiz popping up and they seem to be pulling from wrestling games. By Yakuza you've got something that plays a whole hell of a lot like a AKI game, (which is probably why they had them make those Black Panther games) with faster strikes, but not as free of a grappling system...like in Yakuza suplexing someone onto a guard rail is a contextual attack, where in a pure AKI game you'd just always have a suplex, and you'd have to hit them on it yourself.

    Not the same compared to Kuroda's to be honest.

    Fun bit of trivia, Akiyama is also the Japanese Donald Duck.
