Yakuza 4 Grabs US Release Date
The Yakuza series gets plenty of love from critics but often goes unnoticed by gamers. It's why Yakuza 3 won "Most Overlooked" as part of our Game of the Year Awards 2010.
But you'll get another chance to reward Sega for a solid effort. Sega has announced that Yakuza 4 will arrive in North America on March 15, and in Europe three days later. The PlayStation 3 exclusive received plenty of acclaim when it launched last year in Japan; one of our favorite bad-asses in Kazuma Kiryu returns, and he'll have to fight his way to another satisfying conclusion. You may have heard that the newest title is Yakuza: Of The End, which is slated to release this year in Japan. However, we're always a year behind in regards to this franchise, so yeah, we have yet to see Yakuza 4. But now that we have it all cleared up, you're gonna be picking up the latter when it releases in a few months time, right? If we don't buy it, Sega might decide not to localize Of The End and trust us, that'd probably be a bad thing. We always love great PS3 exclusives and Yakuza definitely qualifies.
Just remember, there's going to be a bit of a departure from the norm in the newest game. It'll have zombies and guns and stuff.
