IGN asks Japanese mafia expert about Yakuza 4’s interpertation of said crime syndicate

March 30, 2011

IGN’s Daemon Hatfield sits down with Jake Adelstein, an american reporter who worked in a Japanese newspaper, and he explains what is fact and what is fiction in the way Sega portrays the japanese mafia in it’s major PS3 title, as well as certain lifestyle elements, such as the Hostess Bars. One of the major climactic scenes in Yakuza 4 is also apparentely based on a real life incident. A very interesting insight into the world of japanese mafia. I would also recommend people watching this interview as well, as it features more details.
