Metacritic

Matt D: Underworld melodramatic soap opera and karaoke simulator. It’s an old-fashioned action-RPG, sending you wandering around its massive world searching for some arbitrary trigger to advance the story with depressing regularity but the environment is so fantastically well rendered that you walk away from the story at any time and find something to do, and it’s charm / presentation is more than enough to overcome its deliberate anachronisms. The NA version apparently has a pile of cut content and I’m hoping for more localized development in #4.

Dev Interview

Daniel_Rf: The most fun I’ve had doing chores for children ever.

Hysterical Impossibly Badly Dubbed Video Interview

Jamescobo: It sucks that they’re removing content, but I never got as much into the hostess stuff as other Yakuzatards so I’m not slitting my wrists over it or anything. As long as I can still win a fight with a tiger by sticking a cigarette in its eye, I’ll be good. Anyone who doesn’t buy this game should be reincarnated as Amy Winehouse’s taint.

Composer Interview

Cozen: Massive, despite the cuts.
