    Ryū ga Gotoku 4 (Yakuza 4) | Kiwami 4 - 2018

    This was released in Japan roughly 2 days ago. Who knows if this is getting an American or European release! There is a demo available to download and play on the Japanese PSN(meaning nothing is stopping you from getting it).

    The biggest change in this game is that is centers around four protagonist: Kazuma and three new characters. Each have their own story that eventually leads to the four them joining together as a team. This is great because by 3, the game's attacks(except for the eternally awesome heat attacks) edge was beginning to dull. Now you got 3 new styles to play as and even more FUCKING BRUTAL heat attacks. Now for a shit load of trailers.

    In-depth trailer


    Story trailer... with (unofficial) subtitles!


    TV commercial


    Kazuma: The motherfucking man returns.


    Akiyama: From homeless to finance worker, all thanks to Nishiki! A master of kicks!


    Tanimura: Given up any desire to be a cop in order to find the man who killed his father. A grappler!


    Saejima: Been in prison for 25 years for murdering 18 of his enemies at once. A powerhouse! Has a rather interesting "revelations" method.




    A note on these trailers: I see Majima without eye-patch! A flashblack scene is assured. Also isn't this the first time we ever fight a girl? Another note: it seems in one of the sidequests you train someone for a tournament.

    The demo has two modes to play: 1) Story mode, which is just like the Yakuza 3 demo, maybe longer. 2) 4-battle mode, where you play one battle as each of the characters. Graphics are mostly the same, but I think I notice an improvement in the number of decent textures. In Yakuza 3, it was really mixed. It seems the leveling system got a big overhaul. You pick individual abilities to level up, instead of pumping exp into categories.

    I'm happy to see Revelations stay in the game, they were goddamn entertaining to hunt down in the third game. 'OMG New Technique BEHOLD my spontaneous street wood carving!' This franchise knows exactly when not to take itself too seriously.

    Yakuza 4 (Ryū ga Gotoku 4: Densetsu wo Tsugumono)

    Announced for western release by SEGA France fuck yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

    http://i48.tinypic.com/2euhnw9.jpg

    News was written after getting info directly from SEGA France who also say the game will be shown at E3 next week. After, people will have the chance to send questions to be answered by the producer of the Yakuza series: Toshihiro Nagoshi.

    Here's to hoping SEGA learned after the Yakuza 3 fiasco not to cut so much stuff for the western release.

    edit: Sega Europe released the news on their blog also: http://blogs.sega.com/europe/2010/06/08/iamkazuma/

    Not sure when it was announced, but was browsing and saw a link at gaf, looked here and didn't see a topic so made one. I'm sure BRP will be contributing shit to this thread more than me, but I am excited for this game. It's probably the one thing SEGA has worth a shit these days, that is unless they bring Valkyria Chronicles back to the consoles.

    I DID make a topic. It didn't talk about western release plans(as it hadn't happen yet).

    Glad to hear it's getting a western release because I just started Yakuza 2. I'm so glad they got rid of English VA's. Couldn't stand the first one.

    Really? Searched Yakuza and didn't see any thread for 4

    edit: Oh I see, you misspelled Yakuza and wrote Yazkua so it didn't show up on search, can lock this thread if you want Qal

    Haha, looks like they did learn from Yakuza 3.

    We’d also like to confirm what we feel is important news for our fans: the Hostess Clubs will be returning in Yakuza 4!

    I just got my copy of Yakuza 3 the other day but have been busy with classes. Finally have time this weekend to finally play it. So far though I'm in love with this series and I'm just glad they keep localizing the games. Quick question though is there any chance they will ever localize Yakuza Kenzan or are we shit out of luck for that game?
