TGS08: Yakuza 3 trailer

TGS08: Yakuza 3 trailer

Sega was showing this new and long trailer of Yakuza 3 on their booth, and Bikoko filmed it for us. The modeling of Kabukicho is just impressively lifelike.

Blimey, this looks very good indeed. Still hoping for a Takeshi Kitano game at some point, come on Sega make it happen.

That looks bloody good. They've nailed the look of Tokyo very well. Also, most likelike Japanese chicks in a game ever?

wow I absolutely love it - and very nice that they improved the transition between walking and fighting, for that can get a bit annoying in Yakuza 2 (which I am currently playing)

Waaah, come on I thought Yakuza 3 is referring to Yakuza Kenzan's US release. Its a great surprise that it is not the game launched a few months past but a brand new game in the original Sega series.

Damn, I am so excited for this. The first 2 are a blast, each around a 25 hours thrill and drama storymode, and if you want eveything done and found out, around 40+ hours of intense Japanese soap.

Deasperately want this and need to know how much they can put in a PS3!!Yakuza game.

Shenmue is that you?
Seriously though, looks great, it's a shame I never got to play the 1st couple games in the series now that I see this.

that looks freaking awesome. i just hope its translated a little faster then yakuza 2.
Commented on 2008-10-09 17:44:01
awesome, i thought it was the long awaited shenmue 3 at first. Hopefully it wont be abunch of adverage games strung together by a cheesy narrative. Wonder if they'll even be an english version

It's Osaka, but I agree, all of the games have the feeling and the looks reproduced pretty authentically. Makes the player feel like they are in Japan, that's why I liked the first game in addition to the great plot.

It does look very nice, Shenmue 3 with this engine would be nice ... >.>
Commented on 2008-10-09 22:02:29
OH GOD, YES! This is.. EPIC!

dofry, they're using real magazine models for this game, along with Japanese famous actors, don't worry, they're sexy - the females.

All those stores, I will love this as a Japanist.
