The PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza 4 will launch on January 17, 2019 in Japan, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.

The magazine also has information about Masayoshi Tanimura, who is one of the main characters of the game. Some of his lines needed to be revised and re-recorded, and since his original voice actor Hiroki Narimiya has since retired from voice acting, his character model and voice actor have been changed. In the PlayStation 4 version of the game, Toshiki Masuda will play Masayoshi Tanimura.
