Conduit 2 and Yakuza 4 Get Release Dates and New Trailers

Two of Sega’s Q1 2011 releases have been locked into firm launch dates.

PS3-exclusive story-based brawler Yakuza 4 is up first, officially due out on March 15th, bringing with it a new story told through the eyes of four playable characters, a deeper and further refined combat system, and an even larger world filled with pachinko parlors and karaoke bars. I had a blast with Yakuza 3 after not particularly caring for the first game and skipping the second, so I’m excited to give this one a go and see how it stacks up with the others.

One week later, High Voltage’s Wii-exclusive FPS sequel, Conduit 2, drops on March 22nd, continuing the conspiracy-filled storyline of Secret Agent Michael Ford and his fight to save the world from alien invasion. The Conduit was a fun ride while it lasted, but didn’t really live up to the hype. Hopefully the sequel can deliver where the first game failed.
