Yakuza 3 to arrive in the West

Sega is planning to release the third Yakuza game over to Western shores, thus answering the demands of those who eagerly awaited its U.S. release.

The first and second Yakuza titles received positive reviews; however, sales for these titles initially quashed any hopes for this adventure making it to the US. Ironic, considering how popular this series is in Japan; in fact, the third Yakuza title has already seen released there, and it has played a part in the PlayStation 3’s success.

Let’s hope that with the release of the title in western markets, similar magic can take place.
