Yakuza 4 trailer sets the mood

The atmospheric English-language narration in this Yakuza 4 trailer is a bit too effective. Now, instead of the Japanese language track and English subtitles the game uses, we'll want some grizzled old guy calmly intoning nonstop about what tough guys we are and how dangerous it is in Tokyo....

Yakuza: Of the End video proves the game still holds surprises

Okay, after watching this eight-minute Yakuza: Of the End gameplay trailer, we can now think of the game in a different way. Our bemusement is reduced and our interest increased. Instead of a really strange Yakuza game, we now look at it as a cheesy zombie game with great production values -- like...

Yakuza: Of the End screens introduce cast and ... this thing

Sega continues to work on the zombie shooting spinoff Yakuza: Of The End, releasing more screenshots as proof that it really is following through on this insane idea.

Yakuza 4 producer gives us a new view of Kamurocho

The Yakuza series may be exploring left field with the fanciful zombie-attack game Yakuza: Of the End, but American audiences still have one good old jaunt around Kamurocho to look forward to: this spring's Yakuza 4, whose major innovation of four playable characters seems comfy in comparison.

Yakuza PSP crosses over into TV and manga

Sega wants you to believe these three guys are tough. That's sort of a requirement for accepting them as protagonists of a new Yakuza TV series, based on the PSP's Black Panther: New Yakuza Chapter and bearing the same title. Japan's TBS and MBS stations will begin showing the live action...

Yakuza ad hints at a violently renovated Tokyo

An ad for the new, untitled PS3 Yakuza game suggests that some big changes are in store for the game and its Kamurocho locale. The ad, in this week's Famitsu, shows the main entrance to the Kabukicho-like district totally wrecked -- with street lights bent out of shape, cars smashed up in the middle...
