SEGA has announced that Yakuza 3 will be released in the UK on March 12, 2010.

Yakuza 3 will feature full English subtitling, whilst retaining the voice acting from the original Japanese version. The third game in the series sees players take on the role of Kiryu Kazuma and will explore familiar Tokyo haunts from the first two games, along with a completely new setting in the tropical island of Okinawa.

Yakuza 3 will be released only on PS3.

One should always choose the native language selection rather than one that is dubbed.

Especially with a game like Yakuza, where the setting is the main aspect of the game.

On another note, that box art is awful. The Japanese version is much better.

Never played a Yakuza game! Is this a type of game which you need to buy the previous two before playing this one?

Although this game looks good, it is somewhat lower on my list with Heavy Rain and BC2 coming out at around the same time.

May pick it up later on in the year though. And I'll be interested to see how it reviews.

I also think that a game set in Japan should have Japanese voice acting. To many games have dubbed scripts which just sound cheesy when voiced by American actors. To keep it more authentic, I have no trouble hearing an actual Japanese actor playing the part. Maybe it's just me...
