Yakuza 5 to get a western release!

The wait is finally over! Yakuza 5 – the open world, crime-themed game that hast taken the rest of the world by storm will soon be in our hands! Sony and Sega announced the news today at the PlayStation Experience Event in Las Vegas. It will release on the PlayStation 3 via PSN in 2015.

The game’s Western debut follows Sony’s #Buildingthelist campaign, which asked fans to name third-party games they wanted to see most on PlayStation platforms. Director of Third Party Production at SCEA Gio Corsi said Yakuza 5 was one of the most requested games.

Sega and Sony also announced that Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls will be available to download from PSN starting Sunday.

The last Yakuza game to be released outside of Japan was Yakuza 4 in 2011. Yakuza 5, which features a new graphics engine, follows Kazuma Kiryu and four other protagonists in their struggles and conflicts in the seedy underbelly of Japan’s Yakuza underworld.
