Sega of America has told VG247 that the US edition of Yakuza 3 will contain Japanese voiceovers with English subtitles.

The company’s European arm told us on Monday that the EU version will also contain English subs and Japanese VOs.

A SoA PR told us: “Yakuza 3 will actually have full English subtitling only, no English voice-overs.

“The only Yakuza game to have English voice-over was the first one and with Yakuza 2 and 3 we feel that subtitling would be the best way to go in order to convey and preserve the emotion and intensity of the dialog.”

Earlier in the week, SoA’s Constantine Hantzopoulos said the game would contain an English-speaking voice cast.

But Sega Europe told us then later in the day that was not true.

Well, now you know. The action game is released in March for PS3.
