Video: Tokyo’s Sin City is waiting

Ready to venture into the red-light, Sin City District of Tokyo for a little cops versus Yakuza action?

Of course you are! I mean, who wouldn’t be?

Yakuza 4: Heir to the Legend

Luckily, Yakuza 4 – a Japanese-themed video game developed and published by Sega exclusively for the PS3 – will be hitting North American stores on March 15, 2011.

As with the original title, most of the action is set in gritty Kamurocho (aka Kamuro City), a fictionalized, yet realistic recreation of Shinjuku’s real-life, red-light Kabukichō district.

However, three new locations have been added since Yakuza 3, including a vast rooftop area, the back streets of Kamurocho (aka Rojiura) and the dank underground known as “Kamuchika,” or “chika,” which encompasses the city’s sewers, parking lot and shopping arcades.
