Western release date for Yakuza 4 revealed

SEGA have confirmed that Yakuza 4 will be released in the US and Europe in Spring 2011 (second quarter) so I am sure we can expect the local release around that time too.

In a press release SEGA describe the upcoming title’s setting as a “fully realised, authentic recreation of Tokyo’s ‘Sin-City district” the deep and interweaving crime drama of Yakuza 4 unfolds through the eyes of four unique and dangerous characters.”

Playing as Kazuma Kiryu, the loan shark, Akiyama who is an escaped convict Saejima or detective Tanimura, you will “need to survive the dangers and temptations of the Japanese underworld.”
