Yakuza 3 disappointed last year when a batch of content from the Japanese version of the game was taken out from the Western release. That won’t be happening for this year’s Yakuza 4, however.
Siliconera have confirmed that only two elements have been removed from the Western release of the game. One of these is the Answer X Answer arcade mini-game, as the text could not be localized. The only other change is simply the opening video, which uses different music.
The controversial hostess side-stories will still be in this one, along with the rest of the game that launches later this month.
