Sega currently has no plans to bring Yakuza 3 to the west. Here are a few reasons why they should reconsider.
It will make them money? lol Im sure that's the only reason they would be concerned with.
Have they already decided not to release it in the west? If not, what are they reconsidering?
You can buy this game off of Playasia.com or Yesasia.com and its in English...I'm surprised not alot of people know this, one my buddies have it and its awesome, I ordered my import a few days ago.
Quick question for blakstarz. You mentioned that the game can be ordered in English from Playasia & Yesasia. Can Yakuza Kenzan also be ordered in an English version? I want that game more than Yakuza 3.
How can it be in english if it has only been released in japan? Do you have any pics or anything? The demo was in japanese only so I remain a skeptic. In addition to that playasia reports that the game is in the japanese language (both Asia and Japan releases)
i agree with barom i want proof its in english before i import it
"You can buy this game off of Playasia.com or Yesasia.com and its in English" False. Everything about the game is Japanese, including the menus and subtitles. Sega COULD spend the next few months localizing the game for us but they won't.
cause i would buy it :)
blackstarz.. why lie? I bought the limited edition Yakuza 3 ps3 and it comes with the game and everything is in jpn, nothing in english. why u trying to make people waste their money?
Well, I thank those of you who said something to clear this up. I was definitely going to buy this game if it were in English. I'm learning Japanese, but it's damn near impossible.
just a guess. :)
Sorry about the misinterpretation.....the game I was referring to was Demon Souls has English...
Yakuza from what i have seen is a game that will sell fairly well in the west. Is it a Japanese thing?. I don't get it.
I'm a fan of the series and believe that Yakuza 3 would easily become the highest selling in the franchise in the US when it does finally hit. People are suckers for graphics, lol. Make it happen, Sega!
