Don't Miss The Yakuza 3 Demo Today
Normally, we don't dedicate entire news stories to a single demo appearing on the PSN but we figured Yakuza 3 deserves a little extra attention.
We know that because it launches here in the US on March 9 - yep, same day as Final Fantasy XIII and one week before God of War III - it's going to get overshadowed. Furthermore, as it's the first entry on the PS3 and the past couple of installments on the PS2 didn't exactly tear up the sales charts, it's unlikely that many are anxiously awaiting the release of Yakuza 3. However, we should remind you that this PS3 exclusive got very high review scores in Japan; most critics agree it's the best title in the franchise thus far. And if you want to get a taste of the atmospheric GTA-style street brawler, you should download the demo today. If it's not on the Store just yet, it should pop up within the next few hours so keep checking back. The story will also be a focal point and we just can't wait to tear into some thugs once again; it's kinda like a modernized take on Streets of Rage or Double Dragon, only with a far more advanced battle system, and an intricate environment to go along with it.
You should at least check it out. Although we can't tell you to pick this one up ahead of FFXIII or GoWIII, we know some of you will really enjoy this type of game.
