The Yakuza series has never quite had much luck over in the west. While the game has received praise and good sales in it’s homeland of Japan, the west has had to endure having broken, watered down versions in order to avoid controversy about it’s often disturbing depiction of gang life in Tokyo.
Not anymore though. Yakuza 4 will be hitting UK and US shores in March 2011, fully unedited. Expect the game to be crawling with hookers, questionable hostess clubs, and a large variety of ways in which to hurt people, like bashing them with a moped.
