I’m a huge fan of SEGA’s story driven RPG-Brawler ‘Yakuza’ series, so this trailer has just raised my excitement levels from ‘exceptionally excited’ all the way up to ‘ready to burst’.
Yakuza 4 was released this March, going on to be the biggest selling title in the series. Since then the game has been undergoing localisation for Western markets, but unlike Yakuza 3, things like the uniquely Japanese hostess bars aren’t being edited out. This time you take on the role of four playable characters in their adventures in Kamurocho, the red-light area of Tokyo.
You can fight me for my place at the front of the queue when Yakuza 4 launches in the spring.
