Ryu Ga Gotoku prologue heads to DVD, no import plans

Sega's Ryu Ga Gotoku ("Like a Dragon") was released a month ago in Japan and is being hailed as a gaming masterpiece. We've already seen Sega launch a line of shot glasses and lighters to promote the title, and now a live-action prologue is being released onto DVD in March, featuring 43 minutes of ultra-violent beatdowns and, we suppose, a touch of Kazuma's backstory. Sega reportedly spent $20 million developing this game, which explores the Japanese underworld through a plot penned by award-winning novelist Hase Seishu. Unfortunately, no plans to import the title to North America or Europe have been announced.
