Yakuza 5 has better turn up in the west or my adoration of these two new, release date-celebrating trailers will be wasted.

Gematsu reports Sega has locked the gangster adventure down for a December 6 launch. the PlayStation 3 exclusive is said to be the biggest the series has produced so far by a significant amount, spreading to multiple cities; it’s a good thing Japanese pre-orders come with five maps, then.

It also has dance battles.

Here are some trailers which will make little sense to most of us. Sega is reasonably likely to bring Yakuza 5 west, but probably not for several months at least.
