In an interview with Famitsu this week, Sega's Shuji Utsumi revealed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon was the most successful title in the series internationally when it comes to sales. The main reason for this success comes down to its release: Like a Dragon was the first game from the franchise to hit multiple platforms on the same day. In the past, Yakuza titles were limited to Sony platforms and nothing else.
This has led Sega to re-evaluate how it handles international releases. We're already seeing that change with Lost Judgment, a Yakuza spin-off that is hitting both Japan and the US on the same day, but it seems Sega isn't limiting it to in-house franchises. Atlus titles are also up for evaluation on whether or not they'll get multi-platform releases and simultaneous international releases.
