Famitsu reveals Yakuza 3 battle system details

ps3 fanboy write: Famitsu (translation via IGN) has unveiled in its latest issue details regarding the battle system of Yakuza 3. One of the major improvements is seamless transitions into fights. Another note-worthy addition is the foes you encounter may decide to run away from you (and vice versa, if you are chicken) -- you now have to option to engage in a "chase battle" to pursuit the enemy. This "chase battle" involves keeping your enemy in sight with your mini map and avoiding any obstacles that may appear in your path.

A "tag tournament mode" was also shown in the gaming magazine's pages. Your character enters a fighting arena where you must team up with a partner (whether this is a CPU partner or something else isn't clear) to unleash some co-op attacks on your enemies.

The last iteration of the Yakuza franchise on the PS3 sold fairly well over in Japan. Unfortunately, it hasn't received a stateside release (yet) -- here's to hoping Sega will bring both Yakuza games over to the Western market.

i love Yakuza.
And Yakuza 3 is Stunning from what i seen so far

I hope the two yakuzas for PS3 will come to EU too.

agreed.. why aren't they releasing it for the western gamers?

jkhan3680d ago

I still don't understand why they don't bring Yakuza games to the world outside Japan. I am sure there is a huge market of hardcore gamers that want to get there hands on it.

and Yakuza 2 is or will be released and it was official, but i dont remember if it was official for US or EU.
(Yakuza 1 and 2 are for PS2)

pwnsause3680d ago

yakuza 1 and 2 are already released in the US, dont know about the EU though. They havent brought out the Yakuza prequel here yet.

jkhan3680d ago

Yeah I know they brought Yakuza 1 for PS2 almost at same time as the Japan. But they brought Yakuza 2 to US/EU after the release of the prequel. Plus they don't have any english subtitles in the japanese version, so good luck waiting a few years for the game.

I have Yakuza 1 and 2, they were released in Europe.
