/cheer – Yakuza 3 To Get Western Localisation After All

leave a comment »

In a nice bit of Monday morning news that will get the Yakuza faithful smiling again, 1UP.com has confirmed that Sega are in the midst of prepping the localisation their Japanese blockbuster hit for a Western release next year.

This is great news for me as in lieu of the second Shenmue sequel that will never be, the Yakuza series is perhaps the closest thing to Yu Suzuki’s Dreamcast opus that fans will ever get.

What I don’t understand is why the localisation is going ahead; especially considering the dire sales figures of the first two Yakuza titles in the West – as this reason was unofficially sited as why localisation wasn’t going to proceed in the first place.

Still, it would be churlish to look a gift horse in the mouth; especially one bearing the colours of a new Yakuza title.

More news as and when.
