This looks totally awesome in my opinion. Of course, I love the Ryu Ga Gotoku series and the Edo period (and Japanese history in general), so I am quite biased, but I think the game looks great and considering how detailed the other games in the series are I expect there will be a lot to do in this one. I am very excited personally.

It looks awesome, this is the kind of graphics I expected from a Sony game (and from a really next gen Onimusha) so I'm really surprised. Let's see more at TGS.

It's a Sega game.

It also shows that Japanese developers aren't as behind as some make them out to be.

I am just going to throw this out there but i think this has the best looking talking scenes in gaming(if real time) even beating out mass effect.

OMG awesome.
But I will refuse to play it as I did with the first if japanese VO. + english/something-with-a-Latin-alphabet subtitles are not released. I can't stand yakuzas or samurais talking in english. It's ridiculous even if it is fucking Michael Madsen.

I think it's something like Shenmue (a mix of all that).

Very rarely, but sometimes they do have English options, more apparent on the PS3 so far, in fact Sega already did this with the NTSCJ versions of VF5 and Power Smash 3 (VT3). They're not the only ones, Namco did it with RR7 and Insomniac did it with Resistance (IIRC), but again those games all had really close release dates between the NTSCJ and NTSCU/C versions.

But Onimusha DoD and DMC3 did have English options though iirc and those NTSCJ versions came out some time before the domestic releases.

Nagoshi does, at least. In Nagoshi I trust.

I've sent an email. It would be great if someone joins the petition:

Dear Sega,

I (PSN tag: *yours* ) would like to play the third Yakuza game with original Japanese voices and localized subtitles. If you have some space left on the Blu-Ray disc, I would be more than happy if you consider this option.

Best regards.

Done, for what it's worth, although I was a little more specific about asking for English subtitles with Japanese voices in either a Japanese or any US/Euro release.

The game looks ok at best. There's nothing in the screens to nut over, unless you're really wild about the yakuza/ancient Japan theme.

Maybe you should refer to the game as Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan since you are asking Sega JP themselves. That or they get confused at the Yakuza game, since that was probably a Sega of America idea. lol

Any next-gen (I guess now we should be saying current gen) title. There's nothing that stands out here other than the theme. Even the most detailed models aren't terribly impressive. It doesn't look bad, but it certainly doesn't eclipse anything out there by any measure.

:lol Ok. I'm still interested in the game and all, as I enjoyed the heck out of Yakuza; I'm just calling a spade a spade, here.

Holy shit! I just watched the movie on the main webpage. Wow... simply wow.

I don't see how anyone can watch that and call the game's graphics simply "okay". The graphics are almost certainly real-time considering pretty much all of the movie sequences in the first two games were rendered in real-time (I think so at least).

This just jumped up to my #1 anticipated PS3 game. Looks like it is going to have an interesting story too.

So basically, you're more in love with the theme than anything else. What makes the graphics great? I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary in those gameplay shots. The real-time cutscenes in the trailer feature some excellent character models, but cutscenes aren't representative of gameplay. What I'm seeing from gameplay shots is about on par with technical achievement that Yakuza reached for the PS2; considering the scope, it wasn't awful, but it also wasn't a technical stand-out among the competition.

You'd get a better perspective by pulling your head out of your ass.

Look at the people splooging all over mass effect. Fact is from what we have seen the game looks awesome.
