SEGA has dated yakuza adventure Ryu Ga Gotoku 3, the fourth entry in the franchise known as Yakuza abroad. It will be out February 26 for ¥7,980 (US$84). Those who pre-order will get a copy of Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 night club mag Kamutai, which includes an urban map pointing out all the hotspots in the hostess water trade. SEGA has used the mock Kamutai booklets as giveaways for previous Ryu Ga Gotoku titles. On the cover of the newest edition are models from Japanese magazine Koakuma Ageha, including Osaka-native Rina Sakurai (and sticker picture queen) who's in Arcade Mania.
Hate to flog a dead horse but....the Yakuza games seem to have fairly high production values, is the prospect of finishing the Shenmue saga really so financially impracticable? I guess it would be if only the dedicated hardcore fans bought it but would that be the case?
Anyways, can't wait for another dose of Kazuma Kiryu cranium mashing.
