Does anyone want this to come out in Europe and North America?

I do! Who else?

Yakuza 3? Never played any of them.

Yes! 1 and 2 were great but I'd love to see what they can do with the Ps3 hardware.

I don't see how it wouldn't come the EU and the US....but yea, I would love to see it come over here too.

Well, it hasn't sold particularly well in regions outside of Japan; thus, I'm concerned about its release status overseas.

I loved Yakuza 1 and I am currently playing Yakuza 2 (late to the party) but I would love to see a North American release of Yakuza 3 and the Samurai one. These games are very underappreciated.

The samurai one isn't coming out here, at least, last I checked. I do find it odd how Sega hasn't confirmed Yakuza 3 still. I mean, all they have to do is make subtitles/captions and slap them on.

Exactly. Subtitles and translated menus. Done.

I want it to come out.

I get the feeling that SEGA either wants to make a big push with this, full english VO and such, as it's the first Yakuza on PS3, or they'll do nothing at all and so far it appears it will go the way of Kenzan.

ha! just finished the first one and i thought it was awesome. the combat was a little weak, i kept repeating the same moves every time but the story was worth it.

I've been playing Yakuza 1 and 2 lately and that got me to order the japanese version of KENZAN! I have little hope of KENZAN ever getting a western release, but I really hope Sega would bring the 3rd game in the main series for us lowly westerners to enjoy.

Also, too bad that the first game hangs on chapter 10 on a Euro launch PS3. Makes a sad panda. :(

I've imported both of the PS3 Ryu ga Gotoku games.  I enjoy playing them, but I don't understand all the Japanese so I would like to see a translated version.

Just this last week Famitsu says they're making YET ANOTHER Yakuza game for PS3.  Supposedly this one won't be a Kenzan or 'Yakuza' series entry.  I'm hoping they secretly make Shenmue 3 and just call it Yakuza Ryo story or something.

I thought it was coming to the USA.  If it does, then I will probably buy it.

The game appears to be of a high quality so it's a shame there are no plans (as of yet) of it being released in the west. I would buy a localized version, even if it's only subbed.

They're already starting production on the fourth game... Sad face.

#17 Posted by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

With excellent reasoning, no less.
