Yakuza 3 mega-trailers show everything we're excited about, also minigames

Holy sh*t, Yakuza 3. You're looking so good.

We loved the Japanese-only demo, but apparently we didn't see anything from the full game. This new trailer (above) shows us all kinds of great stuff you can do while you're not bashing skulls in as a Yakuza member.

Forget fighting. You can eat, drink, shop for crap at Don Quixote (the trailer stops to play the store's theme song), explore Okinawa, wear hip islander clothing, visit karaoke joints, and more.  A segment in the video pans over all the included real-world brands in the game. The next shows many of the minigames.

Minigames shown:

  • batting cages
  • bowling
  • epic fishing
  • golf
  • UFO catcher games
  • Answer x Answer quiz game
  • casino games
  • various Japanese board games (Go, Shogi, etc...)
  • billiards
  • darts
  • karaoke

There's another segment on the hostess bars we talked about in our preview. There's some fondling going on here!

Past that, there's detailed video on the battle system, featuring ring matches and tag teams. And another video after the jump focuses on the storyline of this third game. This game is huge! It's like dozens of games in one. This had better come out here, Sega.
