Sega has released in the latest Famitsu magazine some new screenshots of Yakuza 3 for the PlayStation 3. The game is due for release next year in Japan
The graphics engine for Yakuza 3 is very impressive.I wonder if other developers will want to borrow it as well
Sega Come On!!! We want this game and the Kenzan in Europe in 2009 not in 2011
it's simply incredible
Looking good. But they're scans not screens. 20+ minutes of gameplay > http://www.gametrailers.com...
what was that demo we played back in april for PS3 from the Japanese PS store? that was yakuza 3 wasn't it? and you were in the past, fighting dudes in kimonos and stuff. like feudal japan time, did they scrap the idea and went modern to not loose people from the story? either way i like whats going on. and a very nice looking exclusive...
Wow.. it looks very cool. one of the pictures, within the scans, reminds me of Shibuya or Yokohama alley-ways.. I wonder if they'll have Lawson stores in the game and or those soft-drink vending machines all over the place. :O
Ahh I can't wait, I love the first two and this is graphically one of the best games I've ever seen. Shenmue, my wait for your return is officially over since Ryu Ga Gotoku has taken your spot in my heart.
Unfortunately you'll have to wait two years to see it localized, lol.
Good thing I have a region free system :D I'm also happy to see that running a hostess bar has returned in this one. I spent like 10 hours running the Marietta in Yakuza 2 and it was surprisingly fun.
You speak japanese? "Good thing I have a region free system" Debugging unit?
No, all PS3s are region free so you too can import it.
Oh right, I forgot about that. Silly me. Yes, it's a great feature to able to import without worrying about region locks. The only problem with japanese imports is the "language lock", hehe.
The first Yakuza was horrible so I won't bother playing the other ones. They should just make Shenmue 3 multiplatform or something. Yakuza is just a mediocre version of Shenmue anyways.
What a pessimist. I have beaten Xenogears in 1998 w/o translation. (over 120+ hours of untranslated game) @Skerj You get that Yakuza 3, man. I just may end up getting it too.
