Yakuza 4 Announced, Yakuza 3 Coming to US Soon
Yakuza 4 known as Ryu ga Gotoku 4: Densetsu wo Tsugumono (Yakuza 4: Heir to the Legend) in Japan has been announced.
As with the other numbered entries, Yakuza 4 will be taking place in modern Japan, this time in the Tokyo district of Kamiyacho. It will star a detective named Masayoshi Tanimura, and a Yakuza member named Takeshi Kido.
Back in May, we mentioned that auditions for Yakuza 4 were underway, and as usual Sega will be featuring some top flight Japanese talent, with Tanimura and Kido be voiced by Hiroki Narimiya and Kenta Kiritani respectively. Both are stage and film veterans, with Narimiya's haircut (called the Narimiya Cut) being all the rage amongst Japanese teens.
The game will use new motion capture technology in order to get not only the actors voices but also their movements mapped perfectly into their corresponding character in the game.
Here are some of the girls from Yakuza 4:
Yakuza 3 aka Ryu ga Gotoku 3 is reported to be coming to the US and Europe soon. Can't wait!
