Mother****ing SEGA USA has decided that, for the English localization of Yakuza 3, they’re going to cut content from the Japanese release. This content includes:

~Confirmed~

– The Hostess Club minigame (was in English release of Yakuza 2)

– Answer x Answer (a Japanese history trivia game)

~Suspected~

– Mahjong minigame (was in English release of Yakuza 2)

– Shogi minigame

– Love in Heart Mbumage Parlour

I, for one, have loved the previous Yakuza games because it is based in Japanese society and does offer Japanese culture and cultural references that I can’t get without a few spare weeks and a plane ticket. SEGAs choice to remove this content from the game and still expect to charge full retail price (US$60) is utterly unnacceptable.
