Over at NeoGAF, Cyntec has stated that Yakuza 3 will be making its way to the US.
“Yesterday Sega told me alot about Yakuza 3, after begging for more information about a western release.
To short this up: Sega brings Yakuza 3 with an english translation. Japanese voice, english subtitles – just like Y2. No internal release-date set so far, but I guess it will hit early 2010.”
Cyntec also said that Yakuza Kenzan (a spin off from the Yakuza series) won’t be coming along with it.
