The way this news bit came out was a bit funny. The PlayStation Blog posted on the release ofValkyria Chronicles 2for the PSP, but the comments section got a little off topic. Lucky for us, Sega assistant community manager Aaron Webber made it a point to reply to a few posts, so we are all treated to this piece of info - Sega still has plans of releasing Yakuza 3in the US.
Good news, eh papajag? Same goes for all you guys looking to play the game.
Here's the post from Aaron Webber:
UNCyrus let me brighten your day first off by confirming something big:
Yakuza 3 is not cancelled and the possibility for localizing it does, in fact, still exist.
The original news story that went around about Yakuza 3 being declined for the US was false, and localizing the game still remains a big point of discussion for many people here at SEGA, and especially those of us on SEGA s community team.I know it s far from an announcement, but I just felt you should know that the chance does still exist.
Thanks for supporting SEGA and quality games like Valkyria Chronicles I ll be around with more news on VC/VC2 soon!
Well, there you have it. We'll keep you posted once more pertinent info comes along.
