Yakuza 3 (finally) heads west

Translations already underway, claim "sources"

Yakuza 3, Sega's brilliant but currently Japan-only PS3 title, is finally on its way to the US and Euro markets, according to reports.

The first two games saw releases over here, albeit around a year after their Japanese releases in both cases, but the third game, which looks pretty good, was looking unlikely ever to be released over here.

But quoting an anonymous source, 1Up claims that translations are already underway for the wordy adventure in preparation for its release on this side of the planet.

Be excited. It looks bloody good, as you can see here (and in the video footage above). There's a demo already on the Japanese PS Store, if you have to patience to rummage through and find it.
