Maybe, We’ll See Yakuza 3 In Stores

Other than a mention on a reportedly leaked Sega memo, Sega hasn’t said anything about bringing Yakuza 3 over. It might be released overseas, it might not. Amazon’s German division is pretty sure we’re getting the game, though.


Their listing for Yakuza 3 says the game will be out on March 12, 2010 and has been rated 18 and up by the USK. Amazon also lists Sonic Classic Collection for the Nintendo DS, which hasn’t been announced, but has been sleuthed thanks to a rating from Australia. Two leaked games in one day? Coincidence or a good sign for a localized version of Yakuza 3, even though the rating isn’t found in the USK’s database at this time.

    I’ve been waiting for this for awhile. Yakuza is a great beat em up series. Might not have God Hand quality gameplay(there has yet to be a beat em up this good,) but the immersiveness of the game along with the story and decent gameplay make it worth owning.

    • If you adore God Hand you should really dig into Bayonetta, if you haven’t already. Very good game that is level with God Hand in most aspects.

      I hope we get a physical copy of Yakuza 3. I need to finish the 2nd game and it would give me a push to do so if we got it stateside.

    I want this to happen and I want to be happy. But i just feel that the bad news is on its way…. Like xenosaga they picked agumon over kosmos.

  • BK0000

    Aksys brought over Agarest War from Europe. Maybe if Sega passes on Yakuza, they’ll pick it up.

    I’d rather get this than FF13. I’ll wait and see if FF13 international shows up. I want japanese DUB dammit ><,…

  • If this is true I’m buyin’ it! But first I gotta get the first two games… Good Thing Christmas is comin’ up!

  • badmoogle

    I loved Yakuza 2 so i can’t wait for 3.
    This is my most anticipated game of 2010 after The Last Guardian!

  • Man..I feel kind of bad for the guys that have been waiting for this, lol. I played the Japanese version a while back and if this article holds any truth to it, then I’ll be playing Ryu ga Gotoku 4 by the time you guys are finally able to play 3 x_x

      If i knew Japanese i would have played it too!:p
