The subtitles. Like Yakuza 2, there will be no English voice acting, but the game will have Japanese dialogue with English subtitles. Besides the degree of authenticity, subtitles only lowers the cost of production and is probably the only reason we're getting Yakuza 3. Sony has been resistant in the past to allow publishers to release games with subtitles so SEGA must have called in some favors to get Yakuza 3 a domestic release with subtitles."
