After countless indications that a Western release was unlikely, Sega has announced that Yakuza 3 is making the trip to U.S. and European PlayStation 3 consoles early next year.
Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 (Yakuza 3) may have already been released, but that doesn't mean SEGA is finished with the game. The title has been getting downloadable content — free of charge.
The game's ridiculously tanned Toshihiro Nagoshi skips stones with the game's hero Kazuma Kiryu and talks about the PS3's "power of expression." Kazuma Kiryu says how importance belief is.
Hostesses? Boring! Guys getting hit with a gas tank? So not boring. This batch of Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 images packs a walloping punch.
Sure, in upcoming PS3 exclusive Ryu Ga Gotoku 3, players can mold their own bar hostesses. But they can also do other things with them.
Word has it that upcoming PS3 exclusive Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 requires, like a lot of PS3 games do these days, a mandatory install. Sign of the times!
If you still don't believe Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 is the most amazing looking game of next month, then this new batch of screenies should do it. If that doesn't do it, then well.
The last Yakuza PS3 exclusive, Ryu Ga Gotoku KENZAN! got instant udon. The upcoming Yakuza PS3 exclusive gets, you guessed, instant noodles.
SEGA's Yakuza series has been successful in its native Japan. In the West, not so — blame poor localizations for that! Now, it looks like Yakuza 3's North America release is undecided. Crud.
