Yakuza 3 Demo Reaches Europe

The Demo for Yakuza 3, the highly anticipated Japanese crime drama from Sega, hit the PSN Store in Europe Today. Sega initially was not planning on releasing the title in Western Territories. Thanks to the outcry from fans, Sega reconsidered and we will see Yakuza 3 in the coming months.

Neither of the PS2 Yakuza titles managed to capture the minds of mainstream Western gamers, as such they both had a fairly limited run and are now quite difficult to track down. This Demo is essential to get the game into the hands of a many gamers as possible as the Yakuza name may not be strong enough to sell the title alone.

The UK is getting a collectors edition of the title with NO standard version available.

The pack will include the following pieces of content:

• 4 pieces of DLC

1. Battle for Survival – Take on all the bosses of Yakuza 3 as Kazuma
2. All-Star Tournament (7 character tournament)
3. All-Star Tag Tournament (8 team tournament)
4. Haruka’s Request – This unique series of challenge missions will send you on a task of exploration throughout the entire Yakuza world, playing mini-games and entertaining Haruka.

• 31 track soundtrack

• Yakuza Who’s Who – learn how all the characters are connected and who turned from rivals to allies in this fully animated guide

The who’s who is a brilliant addition  as most players will be coming to the series cold. Given the limted run of the earlier titles and the limited nature of a Collecter’s edition i suggest you grab Yakuza 3 when its released March 10th, as you may not have much like finding a copy later

    I have to say, I actually didn’t really enjoy the demo that much :[ it just felt like I was playing the first two but with shinnier graphics nyeh.

    Still was fun but I think I will pass this time or wait for it to go cheap.
