We know that some PlayStation 3 owners have been enjoying the import version of Yakuza 3 for close to a year now, but not everyone has been shattering gangster cheekbones with white leather shoes, as prominently featured in this trailer.

Thankfully, the North American and European releases of Sega's Yakuza 3 are just weeks away. This new gameplay trailer for the localized version of Toshihiro Nagoshi's gangster beat-em-up manages to reignite our interest in the game, even if just to crush some skulls by the heel of our imported Italian leather shoes.

For those who haven't been keeping up with the Yakuza series over the years, this trailer should highlight the variety, the insanity and the sheer amount of strutting you'll do as Kazuma Kiryu. I was going to say that pairing Japanese gangster action with Princess Superstar was an odd choice, but the final few seconds of this new trailer reminded me just how out there the series can get.
