    Thank goodness it's going to be on PS3. Not sure about the 'passing on of the legend' though - I hope this doesn't end up full of annoying young characters. Part of what I really enjoy about the Ryu ga Gotoku series is controlling an older guy.

    The way Japan is going, I'm suprised this isn't a PSP game lol. ;)

    I was genuinely worried about that, hence the relief at the PS3 confirmation.

    Perhaps they're trying to make it more appealing to a western market... Then still not giving it to us. :(

    That schoolgirl in the second scan is a bit freaky-looking though.

    Part of the TGS trailer.

    Famitsu says release could be around Spring 2010, but I'm guessing Christmas 2010 is more likely.

    both on PS3? well with BC, I could play PS version of it.
    and is it true, only the first one is really called Yakuza?
    but if we talk about Yakuza4, then Yakuza3 is where?

    I doubt it'll get delayed too long. They've rattled off two instalments this generation already, and it usually doesn't take them too long from announcement to release. In Japan, anyway.

    Anyone feel like giving a straight answer, this year?

    Is there any chance of Yakuza 3 coming to the West? Any at all? I mean, I'm seriously doubtful of Sega taking any notice of being petitioned... *gestures at other thread*

    Tetsu, I'm not sure how rumour-aware you are, but there were rumours circulating a month ago about an impending Western release. Ignition were being touted as possible publishers. Following that, there was a supposed 'leak' of an internal Sega meeting itinerary which listed the Yakuza series as potential candidates for Sony's reported new "import downloads" PSN section.

    I believe the hard fact is that we still don't know either way whether it is coming or not.

    I mean it should have been released by now tbh, with Yakuza 4 releasing Spring 2010 in JP, they better release it sharpish!

    Is that before we even get 3?
    Also, on the localisation....I understand why they are take there time with English voiceovers but surely adding English subtitles with the JP version would be a very wise idea, and quite cheap?

    Yakuza 3 is going to be subs only.

    The real sticking point is SCEA who've often refused to certify titles for retail release when they don't have an English dub. Hence Agarest being download only in the US for the PS3 but on disc everywhere else.

    orly..didn't realise
    a bit slack if you ask me, unless there's added complications like re licensing all of the branding for international etc

    New gameplay vid.

    (You'd be forgiven for thinking its Y3, its looks really rather similar).

    Is it ok to start pestering SEGA for a EU release of Y4 already?
  • Deleted user 20 February 2010 19:03:14
    Nope, we need to buy Y3.

    Mine is preordered :)

    Maybe if I buy 10 copies, I will multiply the chances of a Y4 EU release tenfold :)
  • Deleted user 21 February 2010 09:22:33
    Hehe, possibly. I'll honestly buy a 2nd copy if the game gets into the top 10 (:p)

    Well the good news is that Yakuza 3's English translation has apparantly cost Sega practically nothing.. So as long as it sells reasonably well, they'll probably go ahead and do the 4th one as well.
  • Deleted user 21 February 2010 12:28:50
    I remember hearing localization usually costs around $500K (Some sega dude on a podcast).

    But that would be full localization doing text only is much cheaper.
  • Deleted user 21 February 2010 16:32:11
    yh probably.

    Looks like they're going for an Assassin's Creed 2 style sequel. Looks and plays pretty much the same, but with a lot more content.

    Ping pong and baseball look fun. lol
