An epic game by SEGA producer producer Toshihiro Nagoshi, this is the third edition in the franchise known outside of Japan as Yakuza.
Nice, I never Played the previews Version of Yakuza but this sure looks fun. I might get this one if sale on EU.
I hope this one ends up being more similar to Shenmue than previous two
The funny thing is that yakuza 2 isnt even out in europe or the states yet. I own the first one but i need to play the second before the third. Lol
This vid is neat to me.
Main charactor name is Kiryu Kazumanosuke(桐生一馬之介) as a private guard do anything for anyone who pays well.
And he has a another name and title, Miyamoto Musashi(宮本武蔵), The great swordman(kendo) who does exited past in Japan.
The Scripts of this vid's last part is like this.
Little girl: Would you do anything for me If I pay money ?
Main Charactor:Ah, yes......
Little girl:Please kill Miyamoto Musashi.
LEON the professional
Samurai and not Yakuza? I'm a bit surprised =) This game will ship lots of PS3's, the franchise is very popular in Japan.
Reactions in Japan seem to be slightly disappointed about stage plot.
I think why this game is popular in Japan is for the stage setting, the present days Shinjuku, everybody in Japan is familiar with this town and Yakuza expressed the atmosphere of this town well.
So at now, it's hard to imagine what will happen when YAKUZA 3 is out, will this game push up PS3 sales or not.
It looks cool! Is this an RPG or more of fighter?
Looks pretty good but not that next gen. a good looking alst gen game it would pass. After playing call of duty 4 beta, it is very hard to get impresssed by technical sides of games now. if u can pick it up. do it.
is there plans for english version
Doubt it. the game only sold well in japan but flopped in the west. I just completed the first one couple days ago but yakuza 2 was only released in japan.
I think it will come to the US. With developments costs for this gen (outside of Wii development) being so high, developers are forced to try to get games into as many regions as possible to make up for the costs.
yakuza 1 was a really good game. I wish i could have played the second one. The main character was such a bad @$$ The new setting has really got more exicted about it. there are not a lot of games set in feduel japan like this.
trailers awesome ps3 exclusive list is gettin bigger
PS3 owners should play the first one it was awesome.
holy s**t, was all that ingame or pre-rendered??
