The latest Japanese sales charts released today show Yakuza 3 approaching the 500,000 unit mark, however, Sega has announced that the game has already passed that amount in units shipped.
Yakuza 3 is a Japanese action game, graded very positively by the Japanese press. The game features tie-ins with 27 real companies, including a tanning salon. You get to beat the crap out of people, too.
Now what Sega has to do is bring Yakuza 3 over to the US and Europe and get even more sales.
