Yakuza 4 heading to Europe in 2011

Spring release for SEGA's latest epic.

SEGA has announced that PS3 exclusive Yakuza 4 is heading to "the West" in spring 2011.

The news comes via the SEGA Europe blog (thanks VG247).

We reviewed Yakuza 4 on Japanese import earlier this year, handing it 8/10 and hailing it as a "fascinating cultural artefact".

"Yakuza 3's eventual release gives hope that this series may yet enjoy a bright future on these shores, too," reviewer Keza MacDonald noted, in reference to the release earlier this year of Yakuza 3 in the West.

The fourth game introduces new locations and three new protagonists alongside main dude Kazuma Kiryu.
