Yakuza: Ishin

A Yakuza: Ishin demo will go live on the PlayStation 4 PlayStation Store in Japan later today, Sega announced.

The demo will be the same as the PlayStation 3 version offered last week. Players will get a taste of the opening story and four battle styles, as well as some sub-story and play spots like the karaoke bar and fishing.

    The players will also get a taste of Ryuu ga Gotoku at native 1080p and 60fps ;)

      I just finished playing the PS3 demo again a few minutes ago. How to change the default camera controls? Don’t like what they’re set at..

      also, I don’t remember this scene in the demo

        That would be in another part of the game, I guess.

        Man. With his super serious look being his default expression, I honestly couldn’t tell you if that scene is supposed to be tensely serious or just comedic.

    Hmm. The icon for the Ishin demo is displaying but pressing confirm on it does nothing. At least not yet.

    Strider demo is up though :)

    edit: Oh I see. The article appears to be talking from a western (US?) centric point of view (not taking into account time differences). It looks like the demo will go up on the 22nd; the same day as the release of the full game.

    Played some of the demo and the game looks great on the PS3. Combat was fun and I love the setting! Demo has some nice variety.
