A Motorcycle To The Skull? Hell, Why NotS

Long a tough sell to Western gamers, Sega may actually have found a way to market the Yakuza series of crime games outside Japan: package its trailers like the hammy movies the games so dearly want to be.

Yakuza 4, the latest game in the series, was released in Japan in March, but won't be out in the West until March 2011. To help get you up to speed on what's changed since we last visited the seedy streets of Kamurocho, there's this trailer, which between pistol-whipping ladies and shooting up sushi bars shows the series has lost none of its trademark penchant for violence.
