IGN: It's heading West, it's violent as all hell, and the hostess clubs aren't getting cut. Hallelujah.
I freaking love Yakuza series so much. : ) Anyone who considered / willing to go to E3 2010 could also play Yakuza 4 according to Destructoid. While I'm not lived in US, those who have the chance, could ask SEGA or Toshihiro Nagoshi (the creator & producer of Yakuza / Ryu Ga Gotoku series) about the game. Especially if the game would still 100% full / not, despite confirmation of the Hostess club......... : / --------- EDIT : I've read the Preview. "Yakuza 4 won't have to deal with the same outrage; the Japanese history game is still out, but the hostess clubs are going to be in the game. " ........................... 1 year time for localization, and SEGA couldn't even translate Answer X Answer mini-game......... : ( So much for 100% full game in English again.........
The Answer X Answer mini-game isn't that much important, and pretty much no one can answer the questions. I'm just glad this game is coming out here and with the hostess clubs.
I just want to try it in English version......... + This concerns me for other "potential contents cut" again......... Mahjong? (I understand it a little, thanks to Yakuza 2, don't mind if it's cut) Shogi? (Don't understand it. Wont mind if it's cut) Massage mini-game? (A hilarious mini-game + side missions = great deal amount of experience points. Don't want to be cut...) Hostess management? (Supposedly, I wanted to try this in Yakuza 3, unfortunately it's cut. ALSO DON'T WANT THIS TO BE CUT) 20+ side missions? (DON'T WANT TO BE CUT SEGA) Etc???
According to Aaoron Webber of SEGA, on the PlatStation Blog: "Based on fan feedback, we’ve made a lot of changes this time around – and for the better. Hostess clubs, which I mentioned above, are returning, and in the future we’ll be able to talk in even more detail about the ways we’re making Yakuza 4 a much more authentic step into Japan."
I don't mind the Answer X Answer mini game being cut, but the others I really do want left in. I definitely want Mahjong and Shogi to make it, as well as the rest of the side-missions and mini games. I understand that there are a few things like the trivia that just wouldn't work out, but people buying into the series generally understand that it's a game focused in Japan and people want to get into the culture of it.
I just hope sega don't cut anything else, the Answer X Answer mini-game isn't a problem with me, but if that is a sign that they plan to cut more content that they deem unsuited for the western audience then i'm afraid i will have to skip this entry too.
I hope they make the games more dynamic like in RDR's Blackjack game. It's fast and you feel like you're actually on the table and not being screwed. I really hope they do better with the translations and not to cut out more than 50% of the minigames.
YES its coming here its gonna be awesome
to this game.
Yakuza 3 this year and Yakuza 4 next! Gorgeous :O PS: please SEGA don' t forget Kenzan!
Kenzan has already been forgotten and buried.
This is awesome but watch when Tokyo game show comes Sega will anounce Yakuza 5.
Doubt that considering they're working on the Yakuza PSP game now
sony is going to have us ps3 owners with empty pockets..
yakuza 3 demo sucked, why would anyone buy this game?
Because Yakuza 3, the full GAME, was a blast. Great, great game. And I'm sure this one will be as well.
If you didnt like it, it's fine. But for those that enjoyed the very short demo, they'll love the full game.
