Kevin, the Online Community Manager at SEGA Europe, has revealed that Sega’s Yakuza 3 is coming to the west in 2010. Europe and America will be getting the chance to take on the mantle of Kiryu Kazuma this time battling the Ryudo Ikka, and once again Yakuza will be an exclusive for the PlayStation 3. Yakuza 3 has already sold over half a million copies in Japan alone and whilst the wait has been long for the US, European and Australian, you won’t have to wait much longer – the game will be out March 2010.
Gary Knight, SOE’s European Marketing Director, explains more:
“Yakuza 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.”
