The hostess stuff will be back in Yakuza 4 after the outrage that followed the gigantic cuts from Yakuza 3. Community manager Aaron Webber said that he did not know if any of the game’s side-quest were going to get cut, however both Mahjong and some dress up games with the hostesses will be in it.
It looks as though Sega has finally realized who is buying the Yakuza games in the west and what they are interested in. An accurate depiction of Japan with all of the trappings of their modern culture, and of course the absolutely insane plot that you would only find from Yakuza based fiction.
