Get ready to hit the seedier side of Tokyo and slug it out in HD
– Yakuza 3
is coming. The "real" Yakuza 3
. As first reported on 2chan
, the latest issue of Famitsu quotes Yakuza
series director Toshihiro Nagoshi
as stating that the game is a direct sequel to Yakuza 2
, and is in development exclusively for PS3.
Nagoshi states in the Famistu article that Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan!
– which is set in Edo-era Japan – is actually considered a spin-off from the "main" Ryu ga Gotoku
here in the West). No release date has been announced for the series' third (well, technically fourth) installment, but we'll keep you posted.
