We know we shouldn't wish our lives away or anything, but after watching the latest Yakuza 3 movie to be posted on the game's Japanese site, it's kind of hard not to. The 17th Century setting looks lush and the sword-focused combat elegantly brutal. And it's got a sexy little mini-game that is sure to catch the eye of any gamer that appreciates pretty ladies. Check out the footage below for yourself (the lady-gazing starts at 1.40). We're not sure women in ancient Japan wore leather-bikinis, but history's never been our strong point, so we're happy to let it slide.
We surely won't get to see the third - and PS3 exclusive - offering in Sega's wonderfully violent series until next year. Which makes us sad. To make the wait more bearable, however, we should have PS2's Yakuza 2 to keep us entertained. All we need is a concrete release date from Sega.
