I'm praying for Legend of Dragoon 2.

Yeah! :D

I hope the 3rd one comes here.

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. =/

cmrbe2983d ago

West Next year. Y3 that is.

SpaceSquirrel2983d ago

Hopefully, Sega will bring Kenzan and 4 as well.

STARS2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

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.

cmrbe2983d ago

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!
