Yakuza 5 (PS3) is the latest in the Yakuza series that was released in Japan at the end of 2012. Now over 2 years later, Yakuza 5 has been announced to be making its way to North America and Europe for the PlayStation 3.
With the Tojo clan teetering on an all-out war, four men and one girl will be pulled into the chaos. Experience the continuing story of the criminal underworld that makes all of Japan tremble in fear.
This Westernization includes a modified combat system, more customization features, more mini-games, and even some extra side stories focusing on each character individually and in-depth. The game follows the story of Kazuma Kiryu and four other protagonists as they struggle with gang life and criminal activity using an updated graphics engine that trumps its Japanese version.
That's not the only news, Yakuza 4 (PS3) and Yakuza: Dead Souls are now available to download through the PlayStation Store. Yakuza 4 and 5 directly link with one another though Dead Souls is a non-canon spinoff.
Yakuza 5 will be released for the West in 2015; Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls have been available in the PlayStation Store since December 7th, 2014.
