Yakuza 4 Hands-On Preview: Kazuma Returns, And He’s Brought Friends | Warp Zoned

Much to the shock of Yakuza fans, Sega has handled Yakuza 4 with a surprising amount of competence. Compared to Yakuza 3, where they engaged in almost a year’s worth of “will we bring the game over, or won’t we?” nonsense, they quickly announced a Western release of the sequel. Instead of getting weird, and cutting out the sort of content that worked just fine in the PlayStation 2 games, they announced the game would be localized without any silly “cultural cuts.” Instead of releasing the game on the same day as a long-awaited sequel in a popular franchise, they found a date where it could release in relative peace.

has anyone beat yakuya 3? the game just started dragging for me when you go back to the orphanage and i didnt finish it.

I've finished the storyline twice now, I just love it. Saying that, it ain't for everyone as the story can be veeery melodramatic (in the usual Japanese way).

But I really can't wait to get my mitts on this one...time to crush some faces :)
