Yakuza 5: western localisation to be handled by Atlus – report

Monday, 3rd February 2014 08:22 GMT By Dave Cook

Yakuza 5 is rumoured to be heading West thanks to Sega’s newly-acquired developer Atlus.

The game is not to be confused with Yakuza Ishin for PS3 and PS4. Hit the link to see the game’s most-recent screen drop.

Rumblings of Yakuza 5′s North American localisation come from EGM’s latest rumour column, in which the magazine states that Atlus will port the game for North American audiences.

Treat this one as rumour for now, but would you like to see Yakuza 5 hit western shores? Let us know below.

    Considering that the game was built using a new graphics engine and from what I hear, the most ambitious Yakuza yet in terms of scope, then yeah, I damn sure would like to see this come stateside, even if it is a digital-only release.

    So hope that means we could also see the one from the Meiji Era.
