Exclusive Yakuza press package from France

As you probably don’t know, I’m a journalism student. (And Destructoid’s first guest blogger in France, wh00t! – Niero) When you study journalism, you must go out and find internships. For the last three months I’ve been working for a few French websites, one of which covers hi-tech stuff. Luckily, it gives me the opportunity to write articles about video games from time to time, which puts me in an enviable position as some industry folks have offered to send me free press copies of games. Among them, I knew that Sega France was planning on sending me a copy of Yakuza. But I only expected to receive the game and nothing else. Instead, here is a video of what I received last Friday:There were about 60 fake bills, one folder with information about the game, a CD-Rom containing artwork, screenshots, the Yakuza game, and a dragon tattoo. I don’t know if only Sega France made press kits like this one or if it was handed to journalists around the world, but what I can tell you is that it’s really well made. The game is very good as well, as you will see in the video below. Unfortunately, the bottom line is that it’s not the second coming of Shenmue like I (and many gamers) had hoped it would be, but that is not to say Yakuza is not without its own merit.
