Yakuza 4 has been confirmed for a US release this spring. There is no real news of whether or not the more intrinsically Japanese elements such as the Host and Hostess clubs will make their way over as well. Yakuza has had an interesting history in America. The first game got an incredible Localization including voices from known actors. When that game didn’t sell the localizations have seen a wane in quality and for a long time there was no reason to believe that 3 was ever going to get localized. At least we know we are still getting more of the games.
