Yakuza 3 dated for all the West

March 2010 for US, Europe, Australia.

SEGA has decided to bring Yakuza 3 to Western markets in March next year. The tricksy publisher told us earlier this year there were "no plans" for such a move.

Exclusive to PS3, Yakuza 3 will follow Kiryu Kazuma who, with help from his adopted daughter Haruka, runs an orphanage. But his gangster past soon catches up with him and he's back to booting people in the face.

As the first game in the series to appear on PS3, Yakuza 3 boasts various visual and technical upgrades - although it doesn't quite shake its PS2 roots.

We took a much closer look when we imported the game earlier this year. Head over to our Yakuza 3 review for the full verdict.
