Yakuza 3 pre-order bonuses revealed
In North America, Yakuza 3 is not getting a Premium Edition. The content available for the European version of the game will be offered as a pre-order bonus instead.
Here’s what you get for pre-ordering Yakuza 3:
- Battle for Survival – Take on all the bosses of Yakuza 3 as Kazuma
- All-Star Tournament (7 character tournament)
- All-Star Tag Tournament (8 team tournament)
- Haruka’s Request – This unique series of challenge missions will send you on a task of exploration throughout the entire Yakuza world, playing mini-games and entertaining Haruka.
If you don’t pre-order, you will be pleased to know that the content will eventually become available after the launch of the game. Unfortunately it is unknown if the soundtrack that comes with the European version will be making its way to North America. Also missing is the animated guide that shows how all the character are connected in the Yakuza universe.
Remember the Gamestop exclusive “Challenge Pack” for Yakuza 3? That content will be the pre-order bonus in Europe and it contains new costumes for Kazuma, Rikiya, and Haruka. There will also be a two player mode that allows you to play mini-games such as golf, bowling, and darts.
All this pre-order business sounds like a mess and that’s just unfortunate. Hopefully SEGA releases all of it on the PSN eventually for everyone to enjoy.
Yakuza 3 releases on March 12th in Europe and on March 9th in NA. Can you believe that the long wait is nearly over?
