While we here at oprainfall have our own affiliated group of dedicated video game campaigns, every so often we like to give a shout-out to groups outside our own Campaign Hub. Segalization is one of those groups. They describe themselves as “an unofficial fan campaign dedicated to promoting the localization of Sega games,” including but not limited to Yakuza 5, Valkyria Chronicles 3, and Project Diva F 2nd. Their goal is to relay fans’ voices to Sega regarding possible localization attempts. While the group has its main focus on a handful of titles, they are willing to hear from dedicated fans who have other localization goals in mind.

Interested in checking out the campaign? Here is their official website and their current petition. Also, be sure to check out our Campaign Hub for the newest updates from groups like Operation Decode, Operation Power Up, and more.

    Thank you for posting this. I’m still keeping hope alive for Yakuza 5, Ishin, and Yakuza 1&2 HD to be localized. In fact, I just sent in a second physical letter to Sega regarding this earlier this week.

    As for the OperationRainfall campaign, are there any status updates that you can share or will there be any updates coming soon? Again, thank you for what you are doing–these are some of my favorite games, and it’s been tough for Yakuza fans this year.

    I grew up on sega, master system on up. the few years after dreamcast died and Sammy’s hostile take over really makes me feel this campaign is impossible to accomplish. your trying to convince a company with an American and Japanese branch that never got along to operate together and release wholly eastern intended titles to be released in the US, even though the company has never EVER had one successful title that way. the only sega games that sell well in the west are western developed 2nd/3rd party titles that are produced by sega. that said, count me in. I signed it. you guys are awesome for hoping. Yakuza, Project Diva, and Phantasy Star need to come out to the west

    • RagunaXL

      Code of Joker should be on the list as well!

    I still want that old bleach game versus crusade :/

    Sega has definitively shown it doesn’t give a crap about localizing its games anymore.

    Moving Vaklyria Chronicles to an underperforming handheld and delivering a definitively inferior experience then expressing indignation when it sold expectedly poor and using that as a reason to stop localizing is absolutely reprehensible.

    It’d be wonderful to see everything come out, but it’d be super awesome if I finally got to play the Sakura Wars series (other than SW5) before I finish learning Japanese in 2025. Not getting my hopes up though.
