Yakuza 3 confirmed for western release?


Just this Wednesday, Sega of America’s assistant community manager, Aaron Webber, said in a comment on the PlayStation.Blog that “the possibility for localizing [Yakuza 3] does, in fact, still exist.” A new scoop from 1UP says that according to “sources close to the project”, Yakuza 3 is currently in the localization for both North America and Europe.

Yakuza 2 was announced for North America at the Tokyo Game Show 2007. It’s reasonable to believe the third game will be announced for us during this year’s show.

Let’s just hope it’s true.
