The producer talks about having confidence because of the Yakuza series and I wonder, why haven't they announced any release date for this game on the western front? (Yakuza 3)

Do this Sega, do this now!

After playing the demo, I was first and foremost amazed by the sheer content it had. Sure, it was somewhat big in size (about 1.2gb) but it had a bunch of things that you were able to do. At first, I didn't like the combat system (mainly because I didn't understand it/it was in japanese) but once I started learning little by little by getting owned by that sword wielding dude, I started to like it a lot.

The mini games, like the singing Kareoke, dating, buying new attires etc really add a lot of replay value and more depth into that open world.

Played the demo last night and was surprised that a majority of the dialog is just text. The cutscenes have dialog but any interaction with other characters is just text. Maybe that's the way they like it in Japan? From a western perspective it seems out dated.
