Yakuza 3 heads to the PS3

The latest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu reveals Sega’s second sequel to their critically acclaimed gangster epic series: Ryu ga Gotoku, or as it is better known in the English-speaking world, Yakuza.

Granted, we never even got Ryu ga Gotoku 2 over here, but it would appear that the third entry in the series is headed to Sony’s $600 Blu-Ray player according to a Joystiq retelling of some recent Famitsu scans. The game will apparently be set in 17th century Japan instead of the modern era of its predecessors, making an American port much more likely by not depending on the continuity established in the first two entries.

Or at least I think so. Here, enjoy this totally official looking box art.
