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

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.
