News from gaming site 1up.com just brightened my day and served me an excuse to wait for some new action game goodness next year! Apparently, Sega has seen the light and has announced that the 3rd installment to the popular Ryu Ga Gotoku series will be localized. That's right, Yakuza 3 WILL be making it to the US, and for fans of the series, including yours truly, that's really something to look forward to. There's been no official word on a release date, but knowing SEGA, they may just announce it during this year's Tokyo Game Show, which happens only a few days away. If it does happen there, it will be quite ironic on two counts - firstly, because Yakuza 2 for the PS2 was announced for the states back in 2007, and finally because the next installment in the series, Yakuza 4, will make its debut!
Oh yeah, Mr. Kiryu's getting the spotlight once more, and I can't wait to see him kick ass, paint the town red, and date more sexy ladies! Huzzah!
Speaking of the Tokyo Game Show, many game sites, including 1up, are reporting that Capcom's teasing a "new Street Fighter" on the works. If that's the case, then will we see a new installment in the series already, or another traditional upgrade that's become a staple of previous installments before? Can anyone say Street Fighter IV Dash? Street Fighter IV Hyper Fighting?! Here's my fingers crossed for whatever happens, and I want more characters! So far, there are lots of speculations as to WHO might appear. Well, anyway it goes, I just want to hear the word... FIGHT!XD
