The Original Game

  • The Other Darrin: Yukio Terada is voiced by Go Shinomiya, replacing Kenji Nomura. The role would get darrin'd back to Nomura in Kiwami and would retain the role for Kiwami 2.
  • Translation Correction: The broken Korean from the Japanese version was re-recorded by native speakers for the Korean localization.

  • What Could Have Been: Although the localized version of the game doesn't feature an English dub, it was more likely due to budget and time constraints as opposed to Sega listening to the fans who wanted the original Japanese dub. Sega's localization team had previously expressed interest in getting the previous voice actors back together, and prior to the western release of Yakuza 3, there were also reports that the game would feature an English dub once more. Both games ended up retaining the original Japanese dub.
