  • Sega on Western Yakuza 3 release: "No comment"

    Sega’s just told VG247 it isn’t commenting on a listing from Amazon Germany which seems to confirm a European release at least for Yakuza 3. “No comment from me, I’m afraid,” a rep from Sega told us. For now, we must continue to look from the window as our Japanese friends play the game. Sad […]

  • Amazon Germany lists Yakuza 3

    Oh the pain. But it might not be there for much longer. Amazon Germany has listed Yakuza 3 for €62.99, with a March 2010 release. We’ll drop an email over to Sega and see what they say. Thanks, TSA.

  • Rumor: Yakuza 3 "currently" being localized for Western release

    Well, that was quick. After being declared a “big point of discussion” by Sega a mere three days ago, 1UP‘s reporting that Yakuza 3 is now being localized for a Western release. Quite a turnaround time, that. The news comes from “sources close to the project.” Great news for all you wannabe Japanese mafiosos if […]

  • Yakuza 3 never coming to America? Sega - "False"

    Bloody hell. Sega staffer Aaron Webber’s posted on the US PS Blog that the chance of an American localisation of Yakuza 3 “does still exist” and is a “big point of discussion” within the firm. Here’s the post: Yakuza 3 is not cancelled – and the possibility for localizing it does, in fact, still exist. […]

  • Sega Europe: "No plans" for local Yakuza 3

    Sega Europe’s told VG247 this morning that it has “no current plans” to bring Yakuza 3 to the territory. Sega of America said overnight that it’s not heading to the US either. Fin. Keep dreaming.

  • Is Yakuza 3 coming west? In a word, "no"

    Another tick on the sheet. Sega’s said Yakuza 3 won’t be locallised for the US. Try not to be too shocked. The US arm of the publisher revealed the awful truth to Examiner. Considering Yakuza 2 sold 40,000 copies in the US, this isn’t the greatest shock in the world. Want to us to ask […]

  • Take a look at Yakuza 3's free DLC

Over 29 items in total were released automatically when players switched on their connected PS3s. Content included different missions and item packs, with one such bit having something to do with a […]

  • Sega to integrate its eastern and western divisions

    Sega’s Takayuki Kawagoe says the firm is looking at changing its current management structure in order to integrate the eastern and western divisions “We need more integration so projects and initiatives on both sides can benefit from everyone’s experience and expertise,” said the head of Sega’s CS division. Citing the recent ups and downs of […]

  • Yakuza 3 ships over 500,000

    While the latest Japanese charts show Yakuza 3 approaching the 500,000 unit mark, Sega announced today that the game has passed the milestone in terms of shipped games. Sega’s already said the title won’t be released outside Japan, which makes a bunch of sense considering big PS3-exclusive action games definitely don’t spike interest at the […]

  • Japanese software sales, February 23 - March 2: The Yakuza win edition

    As if there were any doubt, Yakuza 3 took an easy first in the Japanese charts this week, and unconfirmed hardware numbers are suggesting a clear win for PS3 over Wii. We’ll have to wait for the Media Create figures for that, though. Looks as though Wii Fit is finally on the verge of dropping […]

    Sega’s posted the Yakuza 3 demo on the Japanese PSN. It’ll cost you 1,256Mb of hard drive space. Obviously, you can only get it if you’ve got a Japanese account, and there’s no danger of this coming west. So enjoy. If you can.

  • New Yakuza 3 shots show children and gambling

    The latest round of Yakuza 3 screens show a load of children and men plying cards, obviously, which makes us more pained that the PS3 exclusive will never see release outside Japan. Still. We can but dream. And look at pictures of virtual men with awesome tattoos. So do.

  • Yakuza 3 to get mandatory 5Gb install

    PS3center reports that the game we’re probably never going to see over here, Yakuza 3, will have a mandatory 5Gb install. In fact, number crunchers, the exact size of the install is 5120Mb. If we’re being honest however, we couldn’t care care less if the install was twice that size, just localise the damn game […]

    Sega has told videogaming247 that there are still no plans to bring Japanese open-worlder, Ryū ga Gotoku 3 (Yakuza 3) to the West.

  • More Yakuza 3 screens reveal Karaoke mini game

    Sega has released yet more Ryu ga Gotoku 3 (Yakuza 3) screenshots revealing what appears to be a Karaoke mini-game. There’s a girl standing up singing, some text on the screen and some icon prompts below it. If that doesn’t get you excited, maybe if we tell you you see our white-suited friend standing in […]

  • New Yakuza 3 trailer has got it all

    Sega has released a new Yakuza 3 trailer showing all the main characters in the game, a huge Gatling gun and some funky Japanese pop music.

  • Yakuza 3 gets in-game footage from Tokyo

  • New Yakuza 3 screens released

    On CVG. We’re not entirely sure how new these are, but we’re reasonably sure we’ve never seen these before. They are, in fact, amazing. So look at them anyway. PS3-only. No date yet.

  • First direct-feed Yakuza 3 shots posted

    On Famitsu. All looking suitably gangstery and Japanese. No date for the PS3 game as yet.

  • First Yakuza 3 images scanned

    Well, not scanned so much as “had photos taken of them.” On SpazioGames. It doesn’t say there, but we’re assuming these are from Famitsu, as the new issue’s out today. Take a look. It’s for PS3. Don’t expect to see it over here any time soon, though. Thanks, Blerk.

  • Yakuza 3 confirmed – no, the other Yakuza 3

    Joystiq reports that the latest issue of Famitsu has confirmed the existence of Yakuza 3, the latest in Sega’s line of fisticuff-throwin’ Japanese crime simulators. As series director Toshihiro Nagoshi explained, Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan! (which was thought to be Yakuza 3) took a step off the path Yakuza 1 and 2 had paved, and […]
