SEGA confirms that Yakuza 3 is indeed coming to the west in March 2010. Europe and America will get the opportunity to take on Kiryu Kazuma this time battling the Ryudo Ikka and once again it will be on the Playstation 3.
Yakuza 3 has already sold over half a million copies in Japan alone and whilst the wait has been long for our US, European and Australian fans you wonâ€™t have to wait much longer as it makes it’s appearance next spring. Yakuza 3 will feature full English subtitling, whilst maintaining the rich Japanese voice actors that bring an extremely engaging atmosphere to the game.
SOEâ€™s European Marketing Director gives us more insight:
â€œYakuza 3 was one of the most requested titles for localisation by our European SEGA community, so we are delighted to be able to fulfil their wishes with this announcement. As well as delving even further into the rich narrative of the Yakuza universe, the development team have pushed the PlayStation 3 hardware to the limits to produce a beautiful and startlingly realistic depiction of the Japanese underworld.â€
