Yakuza 4 demo announced

PlayStation Plus users get it first.

Impending gangster sequel Yakuza 4 gets a playable demo this month, publisher SEGA has announced.

PlayStation Plus members get a headstart on it from 16th February, before the riff-raff jump in on 23rd February via PlayStation Network.

The demo will let you try out all four playable characters ahead of the PlayStation 3 exclusive's full release on 18th March.

Earlier this week, we learned that the latest entry in the Japan-set mobster series apparently packs in over six hours of cut scenes. Still, judging by Eurogamer's 8/10 import review of the game, they should be well worth wading through.
