No plans for Yakuza 3 western release, says Sega

SEGA has confirmed that it currently has no plans to bring PlayStation 3 exclusive brawler Yakuza 3 to western territories.

Due for release in Japan on February 26, Yakuza 3 takes place in Kamuro-cho, the fictional setting for the original two games, and the real-world southern Japanese prefecture of Okinawa, with players once again assuming control of series protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu.

The sequel also forms part of the “Rising Dragon” bundle pack in Japan, which contains an 80GB PlayStation 3 console, a DualShock 3 pad and a copy of the game.

Stay tuned for more details on Yakuza 3 as they break.
