Sega has just confirmed that Yakuza 3 (aka Ryu ga Gotoku 3 in Japan) will finally arrive on PS3 in the UK on Friday, March 12. Thank goodness.
The long, long overdue PAL port won't have English voice overs, the publisher's confirmed, but it will have all the awesome Japanese gangster gameplay we've been enviously eyeing for the last year.
"Yakuza 3 was one of the most requested titles for localisation by our European SEGA community, so we are delighted to be able to fulfil their wishes with this announcement." said Sega Europe marketing man, Gary Knight.
"As well as delving even further into the rich narrative of the Yakuza universe, the development team have pushed the PlayStation 3 hardware to the limits to produce a beautiful and startlingly realistic depiction of the Japanese underworld."
We can't wait.
