This is one of the very few bits of news that could have actually elicited the excited "YES!!!" I just yelled, which echoed throughout my house, and was probably heard by everyone in my state, as well as certain parts of Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
Best news I've heard since... well, since the announcement of Uncharted 2, actually. I mean, there's been other good news since then, but this tops it all for me. Same as Riku, Yakuza 2 is one of my favorite games. And the fact that, like the localization of Y2, the dialogue will again be in Japanese is a HUGE point of excitement for me.
I just hope it gets properly advertised and sells well. I also want Yakuza 4, of course, and obviously the chances of that happening hinge on how well Y3 does.
Still, very very excited..
Comes out right after my birthday too, so I'll no doubt actually have some extra cash at the time.
First day buy, man.
First fucking day.
