And now it’s time for some (and by some, I mean a lot) of plot.
Here’s Part 1 of my playthrough of “Yakuza 4.”
Most of the action in “Yakuza 4” takes place in Kamurocho (resembling Shinjuku’s red-light district, Kabukichō). Three locations have been added since “Yakuza 3”: a rooftop area stretching across a large portion of the town; the back streets of Kamurocho; and a third area known as the underground, which includes the city’s sewers, parking lot and shopping arcades. “Yakuza 4” has three new protagonists in addition to Kazuma Kiryu, the main character since the original “Yakuza” game: Masayoshi Tanimura, Shun Akiyama and Taiga Saejima. Other new characters include Junji Sugiuchi, a Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department detective; Hiroaki Arai, a Tojo Clan yakuza; Seishirō Munakata, a high-ranking police officer; and a woman, Lily. Returning characters are Haruka Sawamura, Goro Majima, Makoto Date, Daigo Dojima and Goh Hamazaki.
This is a full playthrough of “Yakuza 4” on the PlayStation 4 via PlayStation Now, and there will be a review at the end.
