Among all the games with Asian flavor, the Yakuza franchise occupies a special place. It is a unique series, which tells about the world of Japanese mafia clans. And one of the best parts is considered to be Yakuza 4 Remastered. So what is this project and why should we pay attention to it? It is high time to find out!
The World of the Dangerous Japanese Mafia
The game is a sharp mixture of third-person action, fighting game and action-adventure with RPG elements. Distinctly it reminds of such legendary series as GTA and Mafia. Although the emphasis in the Japanese project is not mixed in the direction of racing and moving around the city by car or motorcycle, and on the teeth-grinding and colorful fights. Duels are put in the spirit of the best traditions of Hong Kong fighters.
Yakuza 4 Remastered is an updated version of the original fourth part of the series. Developers from CS1 Team, who worked on the original, are responsible for its creation. A publicity and distribution of the project is provided by SEGA company.
New look at Japanese criminal clans
The storyline continues the story of the third part. As in the rest of the series, the updated project takes place in Tokyo and its surroundings. Although some events take gamers to other famous locations. The users together with the characters will visit Okinawa and Ryukyu Archipelago, familiar to some people from the previous parts of the franchise. The game also adds three new locations. These are:
- The rooftops over Tokyo neighborhoods
- Rodziura, the backwaters of Kamuro City
- Kamutika (or just Tika), which includes a parking lot, a sewer system, and several trading rows.
It's not just the protagonist named Kazuma Kiryu that's now to be played. In addition to the familiar from the previous parts of the hero, three key characters are added. Each of them has its own story arc, succinctly woven into the main story. The four characters differ dramatically in both their characters and their methods of combat. They all have unique movement sets. Although they can use the same weapons if they wish.
There are several modes in the game. In addition to adventure and normal combat, a Chase Battle format has been added. In it, the heroes fight each other during the chase. And use any improvised means as a weapon.

Advantages and disadvantages
The main positive difference between Yakuza 4 Remastered and other projects about gangsters is the unique coloring that shows the life of Japanese criminals. Also, the action is sure to please users thanks to such things as:
- Juicy graphics
- Thrilling plot, which is a mix of crime drama and comedy action movie
- Awesome staging of fights
The memorable soundtrack with the participation of Zeebra, DJ Hasebe and other famous stars complements the atmosphere of the darkest places of Tokyo.
The key drawback of the game is a rather simple plot. Although it is not necessary to get acquainted with the previous parts of the franchise, which will be a plus for many users.
Yakuza 4 Remastered is a good example of the qualitative work on the re-release of the famous hit. The creators of the updated game carefully treated the original. But at the same time tried to complement it with improved graphics and innovative details.
