Revealed during the opening ceremony for Playstation Experience 2014, Sega’s cinematic RPG series will be seeing Yakuza 5 translated into English for a wider audience.
Yakuza 5, the final tale of Kazuma Kiryu’s odyssey, has been out in Japan for a couple of years with no indication of ever seeing the light outside of Japan. As an unforeseen surprise during the conference, not only will Yakuza 5 be localized and reaching American shores, but it won’t have long to go before its arrival. In addition, both Yakuza 4 and Yakuza Dead Souls will be available digitally on the Playstation Network starting today.
Yakuza 5 will be available on the PlayStation 3 exclusively when it arrives in North America and Europe during Summer ’15. Currently, the buzz is that we may only see a digital distribution for this title.
