Today in Japan, Yakuza 3 has been released to the public. Many gamers who’ve played the previous iterations, mention the smoothness and great story. There’s no doubt that Yakuza 3 will be a success, our only question here in the western world is, When? When will we see Yakuza 3?
The promotion for Yakuza 3 in Japan has NOT been quiet. All day, retailers saw gamers flock to their shops, in a panic for Yakuza 3. Will this title elevate the PS3 in Japan? As part of their cross-world promotions, many of the shops and restaurant featured in the Yakuza 3 game, Don Quixoti and Matsuya, are in fact real stores. So Sega Japan marketed Yakuza 3 in the real world versions of those shops. For now, no official word has been made on Yakuza 3 making it to the US. But speculation says, it may only be an eastern world game. Come on Sega, make it happen!
