Yakuza Ishin gets a PS4 launch trailer

The Yakuza series is basically on life support (or dead) in the west, but it's still going strong in Japan. Set to coincide with the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan tomorrow, Yakuza Ishin has a brand new trailer to show off some of the game's more emotional moments. Yakuza can basically do no wrong for me, so I'm definitely going to import this at some point in the future.
