Default Yakuza 3 possibly being localized for the West?!

Quote:
Just a few days ago Sega rep Aaron Webber commented that the possibility of Yakuza 3 coming to the U.S. still exists and that it's a subject discussed quite often at Sega. Today we can do one better: we've learned that the PS3 exclusive is indeed coming west. According to sources close to the project, Yakuza 3 is currently being localized for release in the U.S. and European markets.

And while this is still not the official confirmation many are seeking, it's definitely reason to keep up hope. We anticipate more news on this front will be coming from Sega -- or another publisher, were the game shopped around -- in the coming weeks or months. It's possible we could even hear sooner: the Tokyo Game Show occurs later this week, and if you remember, Sega announced Yakuza 2 for the U.S. at the 2007 show.

In other Yakuza news, it's also only a few more days until Yakuza 4 is revealed at TGS.
I would love love love to try this game out. Even if it won't do well in the U.S/Europe

It's basically Shenmue lite.

Lite = No Sailors

I have 1 & 2, played most of 1. It's fucking awesome.

I can't wait for this, I still need to finish the others but that's ok. I will.

In response to this I gotta say "America... fuck yeah!".

Can't wait

It's an improved Shenmue 2, which fixed most the problems with 1. I like Yakuza a lot, you pretty much beat punks the entire game.

I hope they cut back on the brothel quests. It's why I quit playing the second one.

Don't lie to the people, Yakuza has no forklifts, I'm pretty sure no QTEs, it has no terrible voice acting (okay, the 2nd one), there's no Nozomi, virtually no puzzles, it doesn't require you to schedule shit.

It is so not Shenmue!

Oh yeah, WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY A GAME OF LUCKY HIT!?

It has "mini activites". That's the same thing as "fork lifts". It has QTE's. It has terrible voice acting....the other stuff is Shenmue.

Like I said, Shenmue Lite.

Personally, I want to see Shenmue freaking finished. It won't happen, but I can dream.


Though, I dug Yakuza, the first is extremely rough. It's kind of hard to play. Still haven't beaten it yet.

Yakuza is like a great 80's action flick.

Love it:

1:40, 6:20 are highlights.

There are other great ones but I don't recall what chapters. He stops a dog from getting hit with a rock. It's a great scene... this one though: 8:55 "your a bunch of pussies... all of you"
