Yakuza 4 confirmed for western release

SEGA has announced that it will be bringing Yakuza 4 to western territories exclusively for PlayStation 3 in spring 2011.

The press blurb reads, "For the first time, Western fans will be able to experience the Japanese underworld not just through the eyes of Kiryu Kazuma, but three intriguing new characters each with their own compelling back-story and a gripping interwoven plot."

In addition, Yakuza mastermind Toshihiro Nagoshi will be answering questions on the game at E3 next week, so be sure to submit yours at the series’ official website here.

In the meantime, why not pick up Yakuza 3? You won’t be disappointed.
