Yakuza 3 for PlayStation 3 is Coming to US and European Markets

400°
274w ago - Some Yakuza 3 PlayStation 3 (Japanese) videos surfaced last year, and now it appears as though Yakuza 3 will be heading to the west.

According to 1UP (linked above), Sega is currently working on localizing the title for a western release. Sega doesn't confirm this announcement, but it gives fans a reason to hope it does happen.

To quote: "According to sources close to the project, Yakuza 3 is currently being localized for release in the U.S. and European markets."

With the Tokyo Game Show happening later this week, the chances of an announcement there are very strong. Since the first two games had abysmal sales in the US, hopefully, PS3 owners will actually buy Yakuza 3.

Let's hope Sega makes a formal announcement in the very near future.
