SEGA has finally confirmed what Yakuza fans have been waiting for, and that is Yakuza 5 will finally be available in North America and Europe in 2015. Meanwhile, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls will be getting digital releases this week on the PlayStation store for PS3. This news is a far cry from what was said a year ago, when it seemed like that localisation for Yakuza 5 was not part of SEGA’s plans.
Yakuza 5 has five protagonists for players to control as well as being set across five Japanese cities. The graphics engine was overhauled for Yakuza 5, giving it a bit of a different look to the likes of Yakuza 4 and Dead Souls. Now all we need is for SEGA to announce Yakuza Ishin is coming to Europe and North America on PS4, and all will be good, I can see it happening eventually. Maybe next year or 2016.
