Yakuza 4 coming west next spring

Tuesday, 8th June 2010 15:26 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Sega’s just announced that Yakuza 4 will be coming west next year to PlayStation 3,

It comes after the release of the third release in the series in the west this past March after loads of fan demand.

The game will be at E3, with game designer Toshihiro Nagoshi fielding questions by fans over email during the event on the game’s official website.

The game’s story sees regular main character Kazuma step aside from the role, with three separate playable characters in “their own compelling back-story and a gripping interwoven plot”.

See that? That’s a bed. Jump on it. Go wild.

    @5 To be fair, it could still come out with all the cuts that the Western version of Yakuza 3 had and I would still buy it.

    I’m just thankful it’s even been announced at all.

    I have a feeling it’s going to be just as bad as all previous Yakuza games.

    Well it took 10 posts for the Yakuza-hate to start, so I guess that’s some sort of record.

    That nope? Killed it.

    Got to say, I’m glad Sega is wising up; you have to cultivate a brand by, you know, marketing and selling it to its audience. Multiple times. MS, Sony, CC, Epic all have successful worldwide IP because they’ve done as much. With Sonic running around, getting nowhere, its time to back a new horse. Just do (or let someone else) give it some damn, marketing.

    @Yoshi ah com’on… ok game’s good, but best game/story?!
    I tried it, didn’t catch me at all… must be because I ain’t no big western fan… it all just looks so empty to me…

    And I haven’t even started on Yakuza 3 yet. In fact, I haven’t even bought it yet :Oo

    Surprised they announced this move so quickly :)

    Yakuza 3 must have done better than they thought. Still not convinced on kenzan or psp yakuza games coming here though
