Examiner: Sega isn't wasting any time with the latest Yakuza title. According to the latest Famitsu issue, Yakuza 4 will be released exclusively for the Playstation 3 next spring in Japan.
Wow, TGS hasn't even started yet and already there's 2 PS3 exclusives announced. Yakuza 4 & White Knight Chronicles 2 - The Awaken of the Light & Darkness Can't wait for Sony's TGS press confrenece
I'm praying for Legend of Dragoon 2.
Yeah! :D I hope the 3rd one comes here.
A yakuza game for the PS3 three years in a row.
That's awesome news for fans of the series in the Far East. Too bad we'll probably never see a localized version of Yakuza 3 here in the West, damn you SEGA. =/
West Next year. Y3 that is.
Hopefully, Sega will bring Kenzan and 4 as well.
Wicked, thanks man. I didn't realize it was actually gonna make it over here. Bubbles to you for the info. And I agree, Squirrel. Hopefully people out here show enough interest in the game and give SEGA the heads-up to localize 4 and Kenzan as well.
a couple of days ago which is excellent news.
What gets me is that they pushed Madworld and The Conduit so hard on the Wii-had poor sales-then said they'd continue that support. While that's great(and I really loved Madworld)it still makes no sense when they've NEVEr done the same on PS2 or 3 for a Yakuza game in the west. How are they going to localize Y3? I'd be happy with just a patch for subtitles which would keep the price down for Seha and might even allow for a Y3/Kenzan dual release and with a push that could REALLY set up Y4 as a game to look forward to in the west. I loved the first two games but they weren't properly released or stocked that well in the UK so when Sega moan about low sales I just don't get it-why have they always released so late and with so little marketing? Yakuza has NEVER had any kind of chance in the west and if they keep releasing so far after the fact in the west it'll remain that way-unless they do an amazing offer with Y3 and Kenzan! on the same disc. The series desernes a lot better, imo. Still, great that it's finally coming as we always thoughtit would if we moaned enough!
btw Yakuza 3 is coming in US/EU in this christmas or spring and Kenzan is coming on psn (cut down some stuff) shhhhhh...don't tell to anyone i said okay.....
OMG HOW MANY EXCLUSIVE GAMES I HAVE TO BUY, PLEASE STOP I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.
Overrated game confirmed
I have played 1+2 and they are awesome games and Yakuza 3+4 look to be even better.
Yakuza ??? over rated ?? are you sure you know anything about gaming ??? oh i see you are just a lil 10 year old kid that his mom and dad got him an 360 arcade and calls him self a "gamer" Yakuza is one of the best beat em up games sadly its underrated DUMB F*CK got back to Google do some research about GAIMNG and you'll know that the ps3 well win this just just like time repeats it self
Will be released for the 360.
I don't see how that could be any clearer.
Woah a second yakuza on ps3 and GTA 5 has still no released date :P
.____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____|| Exclusive??? Oh SONY your Spoiling Me(AGAIN)!!!;) SONY ARE THE GODS OF GAMING!!! ;-P
I'm a bit frustrated that we still don't have an English language (subtitles would be enough for me) of Yakuza 3 and Kenzan. I don't expect I'll ever get to play through Kenzan. I wish I wasn't so behind in the Yakuza series just because I can't speak Japanese. I'd import all of them if I could speak that language. I wish they'd include an English subtitle option in Yakuza 4 so I could import Y4 as soon as I'm done with the North American version of Y3 (if it is indeed coming here).
Hopefully they announce kingdom hearts 3 :) fingers crossed..
Sega. .hear our pleas,we want Yakuza! ,btw..I bet these devs dont complain about cell architexture,its all they seem to work on
I'm still waiting for Yakuza 3 here in the US. Hurry it up, SEGA!!!!
more exclusives every year for the ps3 more halo every year for the xbox
