That's very quick. Didn't Part 2 come out last year?

Heh, I guess my original thought that RGG was trying to be like a "modernized" Downtown Nekketsu Kunio-kun (River City Ransom) was on point after all...NOW they're basically copying off of Technos Samurai for RGG3. :D

Ryu ga Gotoku 3 in the edo period. Well thats interesting. Does that mean the 3rd game could be released in NA without any story related problems since the 2nd one never came over?

Added final score. Pretty good for a few games, nothing mind blowing.

whoa -- there's a twist. i've just gotten around to reading the last couple volumes of blade of the immortal, and i'm completely down for games in that kind of setting. plus its non-relation to yakuza 2 improves its chances for a us release! plus bd means they'll have no excuse to cut the japanese language track!

Oh my goodness. Kinda wished to have it in modern day Japan on PS3 since that would just look damn amazing, but I'm sure Edo period is going to be hella good too.

Isn't this the Namco Museum Remix game that we already knew about?

C'mon, 2channers...the Treasure DS game has GOT to be featured in this issue! Don't let me down, now! :D
Seriously, though, it's probably just going to be another anime license. So sad what's happened with this company lately. :/

I don't care if its a baby training game, whatever it is, it's going to be a Treasure game.

Yes! And Edo period is surprising. I would have preferred modern day, a sort of Dead Rising do-anything kinda game.
