Video: Yakuza Wii U Commercial Highlights Ability To Smooch Privately With Virtual Hostesses

Posted by Damien McFerran

Just make sure no one peeks over your shoulder

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD may be a serious game featuring serious burly men who throw serious punches in the serious underbelly of the Japanese criminal world, but that doesn't mean the TV commercial has to be quite so...serious.

As you can see from the Japanese advert below, the game is being promoted on the ability to switch the gameplay to the GamePad's screen, thereby allowing you to cosy up to a bevy of attractive virtual hostesses without anyone in the room noticing.

Of course, you've still got to be careful that your wife doesn't return home unexpectedly, as is the case in the commercial. Oops.

These spots are hilarious. There are even more featuring other games. Japanese Craziness... =)

This advert is amazing, made me laugh a few times.

I seriously hope this game gets released in the UK. Would love 3 and 4 to follow it aswell ready for the release of yakuza 5!!!!! Having all 5 downloaded from the eshop would be awesome. Maybe 5 has been delayed so hard to develop the wii u version maybe exclusively for wii u. The reactive eyes control made by the series creator in shenmue would fit perfectly into the Gamepad motion viewing.

I loved the fact that "Ride of the Valkyries" played at the end.
Perfect compliment to the situation.XD

Lol. And a much better demonstration of the Wii U than the 'so Nintendo drove our family to Redmond to play Wii U' commercials.

I hope they bring this to Europe and the US and if they do they don't need a set of new ads they can just use this ad it's way too funny! It wouldn't even need subtitles to make people wanna play the game.

Oh man this was an amazing commercial, i want to game now so i think it worked. xD

I hope Yakuza could make it to NA and EU. It would be a huge variety coming to the Wii U then and it would be so much fun. In the commercial, his voice is also hilarious, especially during the scream. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHhHhHH!!!!!!!!

Most of the commercial, the guy looks like he's constipated. His scream, along w/ Flight of the Valkyries at the end is awesome! Edit: the woman playing the wife is very cute!

That's a great ad, I really hope they bring an English equivalent to the US and Europe. Think it would do pretty well over here actually...

Thumbs up if you think we need more commercials like this in the United States. IMO they need to fire NOA's marketing director.



Phle said:

(^_^) Awesome. This kind of commercials should be brought to Europe.

Please bring this game to the Wii U in North America, I want to finally experience Yakuza, just not on one of those disgusting other consoles.
