Earlier this year, SEGA announced that they were releasing Remasters of Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5 on PS4. With Yakuza 3 already available, it was revealed in the latest issue of Famitu Weekly that the PS4 version of Yakuza 4 will be pushed back until January 17, 2019 in Japan. With Judge Eyes launching this December in Japan, it seems like the delay is justified.
The magazine also revealed that Ryù ga Gotoku studio had to recast the voice actor of Masayoshi Tanimura. Originally played by Hiroki Narimiya, it seems like the studio had to re-record a few lines and since the actor has retired from voice acting, Toshiki Masuda will play the role of Masayoshi Tanimura.
