The more we see of Yakuza 3, the more we hope that Sega will decide to let us US gamers partake of the epic, intense action. For now, the title is only scheduled for Japan - we suckers in North America are still stuck with that nasty ol' TBA - but they won't deprive us of this one, right? Granted, it'll probably do better in Japan, but we like great action games, too (even if they do have a distinct Japanese theme). Here's the opening cinematic directly from the start of Yakuza 3, and it should be enough to pique your interest. We've been seeing a lot of media for this one lately, so maybe that's a good sign... Bring it on over, Sega.
