Yakuza 4 Trailer Has Four Times The Punches

By Spencer . February 22, 2010 . 10:28am

Three new characters join Kazuma Kiryu in Yakuza 4 and each of them has their own fighting style. Loan shark turned millionaire Shun Akiyama is a speedster. Taiga Saejima, an escaped convict, uses motorcycles as a weapon.


When you’re not brawling, Yakuza 4 has tons of mini games like mahjong, UFO catchers, golf, and a baseball game where hits uncover lingerie models.



Yakuza 4 is slated for March 18 in Japan, nine days after Yakuza 3 arrives in North America.

  • Holy crap. Best trailer ever?

    • Kris

      Pretty much, it looks even better than Yakuza 3!

        I think so too. Even without playing Yakuza 3, I think it’s safe to say it looks better. I favorited it also.

    This guy looks like Jackie Estacado from “The Darkness”

    • [The Hunter] Doomrider

      An Asian, more rough version, yes. And what a great game The Darkness was

    • Kris

      Maybe… If you crossed him with Anton Chigurh from “No Country For Old Men” http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2497353984/ch0027247
      That being said, I really, really want the Darkness 2.
      And Yakuza 4.

    Can’t wait for Yakuza 3 to finally be released in the US. It seems like forever since I downloaded the JP demo. Hopefully the Yakuza series will continue to be released outside of Japan. I would hate to think people would have to petition/beg Sega for each release.

      Also they should make Shenmue 3

      jus sayin’….
