Yakuza 3 Losing Content For Western Release (Don’t Worry)

leave a comment »

In a communication with IGN, Sega has mentioned that the forthcoming release of Yakuza 3 in the West, will actually have less features than it’s Japanese counterpart. The reasoning behind this was that all the features which were cut ‘wouldn’t make sense’ for the Western market.

Sega had this to say to IGN:

‘The content between Yakuza 3 US/UK and Yakuza [3] JP is a little different in that we took out certain bits in order to bring the game to the West in the time allotted for us to do so. The parts we ended up taking out were parts that we felt wouldn’t make sense (like a Japanese history quiz game) or wouldn’t resonate as much (such as the concept of a hostess club).’

Do not fret though my morally-barren friends, the title will still have stripper bars where you can oogle at and throw money at girls who should really be at home doing their homework and watching Hello Kitty.

Yakuza 3 releases on the 12th of March and contains much Yakuza face-stomping violence, narrative intrigue and tattoos.
