This game tells the story directly following the events of Yakuza 2. This title takes us back to Kamurocho, the setting of the first and second games, where protagonist Kazuma Kiryu takes the role as lead character once more.
Development on Yakuza 3 started once Kenzan was out the door. Lets hope that, unlike Kenzan, Yakuza 3 actually makes it overseas.
