Plenty of visual improvements can be spotted in this new gameplay trailer.
Sega’s Yakuza 4 Remaster has received its first gameplay trailer for PS4, showcasing its characters and the crazy combat that some of them excel in. If you’re a Yakuza fan, this should be pretty familiar to you. However, the trailer also provides a decent look at how the remaster is shaping up for PS4.
Currently, there’s no Western release date for the game. It will be coming to PS4 in Japan on January 17th, 2019. The Yakuza series has been fairly successful worldwide, though, so it should only be a matter of time before a western release is announced. As of December 2016, total shipments for the series were at 9 million units worldwide. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was also noted recently for selling as many units overseas as it did in Japan.
Yakuza 4 Remaster won’t be exactly the same game that PS3 players remember. Masayoshi Tanimura, one of the new protagonists, has been recast with Toshiki Masuda taking over for Hiroki Narimiya. Other changes aside from graphical improvements have yet to be confirmed, but it shouldn’t be too long before we find out.
