Please please give us a option for japanese voices! PLEASE!
Commented on 2009-12-08 19:01:02
These developers are aware that like all other years, 2010 has 12 months as well?

THEN WHY THE HECK IS EVERYTHING BEING RELEASED IN MARCH?!!
FF13 / God Of War 3/ Just Cause 2/ many more...And now Yakuza 3!

And note these aren't "play and complete in 7 hours" games....Oh man.
March I will stop eating (so I can buy these games) and fail life even more (so I can give them the time they deserve).

Anyway, thanks SEGA....*grumble fucking march grumble*

Commented on 2009-12-08 19:49:35

even if it doesnt reach UK shores, we can import it (thank got the Ps3 is region free)

@ bleachessmiles....are you implying shenmue 1 or 2 was anything but a closed world masking as an open world game...lmao.
Commented on 2009-12-08 20:30:17
Good stuff! Finally eh! Now all we need now is Yakuza 1 and 2 to be released in HD like the God of war collection, that'll be the icing on the cake!!! ;)

I don't know how to answer the vague first question but for your 2nd question:

We are [well i am at least] excited because Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2 were one of the best games on the PS2 (think of it is an alternate Shenmue..if you havent played Shenmue either...um, yeah..) and the Yakuza 3 demo (from the Japanese store) was freakin' amazing (strictly gameplay wise of course since I didn't understand anything else).

I remember grabbing a guy and kicking him through a shop window in the demo (in PS2 they just bounced off of glasses) and I was immediately in love.

shenmue but with compelling gameplay. great story too.

it's basically a JRPG, but instead of typical JRPG combat, you get a streets of rage style brawler. it's awesome.
Commented on 2009-12-08 20:59:27
Ah nice well I didnt played Shenmue either but its seems its an awesome game and this is great news.

Thanks
Commented on 2009-12-08 21:44:02
HOLLY CRAP!!!!! YES! Thank you SEGA, you finally did something right!

YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!YAKUZA! YAKUZA!

Seriously, this is the best news in terms of gaming for the whole fucking year. Day 1 purchase needless to say.

Simon, we got it dude!
