Yakuza 5 Will Release in the West This November on PSN

Yakuza 5 Will Release in the West This November on PSN - News

The four and half year wait will be soon over; Sega has announced that it is planning to release Yakuza 5 (PS3) on PSN in mid-November.

During last year's PlayStation Experience event, Sony announced the localization of Yakuza 5, a game most fans had written off as unlikely to ever leave Japan.

The game features five playable characters: the Dragon of Dojima, Kiryu; everyone’s favorite loan company owner, Akiyama; Saejima; newcomer Shinada; and for the first time in franchise history, Haruka.

Yakuza 5 originally released on the PlayStation 3 in Japan back in 2012.

Hopefully Sony start publishing these things in the West in a long term plan with Sega, with physical copies too. These things can be a step of filling in the gaps nicely between Sony's first party lineup and the ever increasing amount of 3rd party games getting pushed back due to 'quality control' issues.

I'll be buying it for sure, even though I don't know when I'll get around to playing it.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does that mean? Is Sony paying for this Y5 release in the west?

Sweet already have it pre ordered should be done with the career mode in Forza 6 before then since I'm closing in on 70% completion rate.
