New Yakuza game already in the works

However, Sega isn't planning on giving the notorious Kiryu a break. The latest issue of the weekly Famitsu confirms a new Yakuza game is in development. Details are still slim, with only scans of the magazine cover available at the moment, but it's been confirmed that the next entry into the series will be on the PS3.

HELL YES! Now just get Sega to localize the other damn games...

jams_shop3358d ago

Yes, please SEGA listen to this^ guy!

sonarus3358d ago

imo they should localize the first before workin on another one. Don't bring it to the states yrs after release like they did yakuza 2

gauntletpython3358d ago

I don't really care about Kenzan, I just want 3 over here.

Redempteur3358d ago

BUt please

Sega you should take less than 2 years to localise these games ...

SaiyanFury3358d ago (Edited 3358d ago )

I want Yakuza 3 here, but I'd also welcome Kenzan! I love Samurai-period games and would love to see it come here. If not Kenzan! then at least localise Yakuza 3. Yakuza 2 was bloody awesome and I look forward to others in the series. Just leave out English voice acting, it doesn't fit with such a Japanese game. SEGA was brilliant with Valkria Chronicles and I'd like to see their continued success on the PS3 this gen.

Hopefully they will annouce Yakuza 3 for NA at E3. Kenzen would be nice as well, I imported the game and itrs great, jut hard to experience it fully without at least English subtitiles. Very Japanese game though.

I've already got both Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan! and 3, but I'd still support a localization effort. Both games are really good, but 3 is better than Kenzan! 3 is one of the best games this generation, easily.

valkyria chronicles would like to speak to you.

callahan093358d ago

They're both insane in how good they are. Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 is much bigger in scope, scale, freedom, and everything. It's got a lot more to offer, and it'll last anyone much longer. But that doesn't mean what it's doing at the core is better, per se. Valkyrie Chronicles has absolutely incredible art style and gameplay and story, so it's hard to top that, but Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 offers MORE and does a great job with art, gameplay, and story in its own right. I love both games, you shouldn't discount either!

Now all they have to do is release Yakuza 3 here in NA and EU and I'll be a happy camper.

Sega is on roll with PS3. Valkyria Chronicles and Yakuza 3, I wonder whats next?
Virtua Fighter 6? Full Auto 3? Maybe even that announced PS3 exclusive in E3 05 that went silent, Fifth Phantom Saga?

Hopefully Sega continues to roll out good games with the exception of Next-gen Sonic games. (Seriously, Were-Sonic and Sonic with a Sword and Olympics with thing you know it they'll make Sonic with a Gat and Sh1t.)

pwnsause3358d ago

whats next is that they better bring a few arcade games into the PSN, seriously, WTF?!?!?! why dont we get Outrun online for the US PSN?

shadowfox3358d ago

The only thing I'm worried about is that Nagoshi says he wants a new Yakuza every year... I don't want this to become Dynasty Warriors: Yakuza...

cmrbe3358d ago

Yakuza would sell at least a million copies in NA and EU. What is it?.

shadowfox3358d ago

honestly, just a look at yakuza 1/2 sales show why they haven't been more aggressive with the series.

I'm sure if sega marketed it as a japanese version of GTA(it isn't, i know), they would have a multi-million selling franchise.

Danja3358d ago

well the sales of Yakuza 2 was low because the game came out 2 years after it was 1st released by that time most ppl were moving unto the PS3 it got over looked
