It may seem like just yesterday that we learned the release date for Yakuza 3
, but that's only because it was. Just one day after Sega finally announced a Western release for Kazuma Kiryu's third adventure, the Japanese side of the company demonstrated just how far
in the future it lives, by announcing a release date for the fourth
game. And both release dates are in the same month.
Specifically, Yakuza 4
arrives in Japan on March 18. That means, if you don't mind reading Japanese, you can be exactly one Yakuza
game better than everyone else. A whole new group of hostesses
awaits! As do some new playable characters. In addition to Kazuma, this game features three other playable mobsters, each with a separate storyline.
