Do you need to play the other games to get this story?

...or is it a stand alone for everything except the characters they place into this new situation?

Extremely late but ....it helps a lot. I never played Yakuza 1 and 2 thus started the series at 3 and 4 and enjoyed this a lot. Was a lot more familiar with the world, characters etc so game was much more fun. Would probably get even more out of it if I played Yakuza 1 and 2 but at the very least do yourself a favor and played 3 and 4. Great games.

It's a dumb fanservice-y "Halloween Special". It's already not very good, and a terrible introduction to the series if you were planning on getting into the others (it would probably put you off doing that).

Just play Yakuza 4.
