SEGA America have announced today that Yakuza 3 will finally arrive in North America on March 9, 2010 — over a year late of the game’s original release in Japan. Oddly enough, they’re launching it the same day Final Fantasy XIII releases.

The North American version has some bits taken out, like the hostess clubs and quizzes on Japanese history. There’s a demo on the PlayStation Store for those who want to give it a run through.

SEGA has released new media alongside the announcement. Check out the new screenshots at the gallery. A new ‘locations’ trailer can be seen below.

    I know they’re all out on the same day, but everyone should pick up FF 13, Resonance of Fate, & Yakuza 3. Then God of War 3 & Fragile Dreams on the 16th. They all deserve our support….

      Sega never actually confirmed that Resonance of Fate date. I doubt they’d launch in the same day as Final Fantasy XIII though, especially with Yakuza 3 also launching that same day.

      We need some breathing room, you know?
