Hey guys, I just read somewhere that the European version of Yakuza 3 will be heavily censored: no massage parlors, no host clubs, and no gambling mini-games whatsoever. The source claims that Sega Europe officially stated that the host clubs have been completely removed from the game. Does anyone have any information confirming this? I'm asking because it doesn't make any sense whatsoever to me. The game is already rated M, and GTA4 nor Saint's Row 2 were censored in any way. In those games you can fuck all you want, be a pimp and then beat a hooker to death with a baseball bat. That's what you do in GTA and SR. Now, a host club has nothing to do with sex (it was more of an in-game dating sim in the previous installments of the Yakuza series), and in the first two games these clubs were crucial to the story, as I imagine they are in Yakuza 3. How does that make any sense? I can understand why they would remove the massage parlor mini-game, there's a fully naked chick there. But what is the reason for taking out the gambling mini-games??
