Yakuza movie coming west, used to promote Yakuza 3?

[Covers sort of look alike, cross promotion?]

Seems the Takashi Miike film titled “Like a Dragon” (the Japanese name for Yakuza series) is coming to America, over here it will be called Yakuza: Like a Dragon. The film cover even looks sort of like the cover for Yakuza 3, only better because the Yakuza 3 cover is uglier; they both share the same Yakuza logo.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is being released on February 23rd and you can pre-order that here. Yakuza 3 gets a March 9th release date, a must have pre-order.

    Please tell me where I can download the Yakuza 3 jp boxart and what I have to do to print it on the right paper and shove it in the box when they hand me that newfangled US bullshit at Gamestop.

    It was a awful film, completely detached from the game and some terrible characters thrown into the mix that served little to no point in plot, the boyfriend and girlfriend are such horrible additions, they particularly ruined the film (Well it was poor anyway, they just made it worse)

    Well I have expectations from the movie given that the first prequel movie was so damn good.

    Yakuza 2 game story is simply suffering from an identity crisis therefore I can't imagine the movie being any worse.

    I look forward to seeing the movie and I hope it is better than the awful game.

    I also have good expectations for the movie , especially because Takashi Miike is one of my favorite directors.
