IGN: E3 2010: Yakuza 4 Preview

IGN: It's heading West, it's violent as all hell, and the hostess clubs aren't getting cut. Hallelujah. (PS3, Yakuza 4)

S W E E T . :D
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......... : /


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.

Although I wouldn't that mind Answer X Answer would be cut.........
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)

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.

SEGA made me soooo happy! :D

Gorgeous :O

PS: please SEGA don' t forget Kenzan!
Noctis Aftermath  +   1570d ago
Kenzan has already been forgotten and buried.

This is awesome but watch when Tokyo game show comes Sega will anounce Yakuza 5.

yakuza 3 demo sucked, why would anyone buy this game?
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   1570d ago
Because Yakuza 3, the full GAME, was a blast. Great, great game. And I'm sure this one will be as well.
ThanatosDMC  +   1570d ago
If you didnt like it, it's fine. But for those that enjoyed the very short demo, they'll love the full game.
