Sony & Sega Will Take Japan By Force with Another Yakuza Installment

May 7, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


Yakuza 3 sold over 300K copies its first week in Japan, and sparked a PS3 sales frenzy that put it ahead of it’s stiff competition from the Wii.  With Yakuza 3 being such a overwhelming success in Japan, it’s not hard to believe that Sega is already hard at work on the next installment in the acclaimed series.

According to the its latest issue, Famitsu confirms that Sega is indeed working on another Yakuza title, and that it will be exclusive to the PS3.  No details are known at this time.  Being in the US, this isn’t major news, since as of the time of this writing, Yakuza 3 still isn’t being planned for any Western territories.
