It’s that time of the year again when the gaming community look towards Japan to enjoy the delights of Tokyo Game Show. Such as this trailer for Yakuza 4 by Sega. I’m a huge fan of the series and am currently in the midst of setting up my Hostess Bar in Yakuza 2.
I remember seeing trailers for the original game years ago, at first I thought it might be the mythical Shenmue 3 which never reached a conclusion due to overly ambitious development costs and poor sales but eventually I got my hands on it and really enjoyed the virtual sensation of playing through accurately portrayed depictions of the Kabukichō district of Shinjuku in Tokyo.
There was recent speculation that due to poor sales of Yakuza & Yakuza 2, the third title already released in Japan wouldn’t see a Western release much to the dismay of the western fans of the series.
