Yakuza 4 Will Have Hostess Clubs, Maybe Mahjong

Sega heard your cries about the cuts in Yakuza 3 and pinky swear to make Yakuza 4 better. We spoke with Aaron Webber, Community Manager, who confirmed Yakuza 4 will have hostess clubs. So, all of the slow motion table tennis action in the Japanese version will be in the English localized release.

Other mini-games like mahjong and shogi, Japanese chess, are up in the air. Webber said he needs to check on these features before confirming anything either way.

 

Answer x Answer, an arcade quiz game developed by Sega Japan, won’t make the cut, though. The problem with Answer x Answer is there are 1,000 questions to localize and changing them goes beyond a text swap. The questions have characters are written on images making each one tough to edit. The arduous task of fixing Answer x Answer would push the PlayStation 3 game past spring 2011, if Sega opted to localize it.
