Sega’s just told VG247 that the European version of Yakuza 3 will contain only Japanese voice-overs with English subtitles.
The news follows a Sega of America rep saying in a 1UP podcast that the game’s US version will include an English VO.
The UK Sega rep told us that the podcast comments were the result of a crossed wires.
“I can confirm that this is a misunderstanding and the game will feature Japanese [voice-over] with English text as with Yakuza 2,” he said.
Asked if this would apply to the US version as well, the spokesperson could only speak for the UK/EU version.
So expect us to follow up with Sega US on this one.
Game’s out in March.
