Video: Yakuza 5 was released in Japan in December 2012. It is yet to see a release in the West. Sega, we are still waiting. Hurry up.


  • They said they couldn’t localize it because the whole team was focused on Yakuza Ishin.

    Now that’s done and they’re already started on the next one, presumably Yakuza 6.

    Combined with Kenzan and the two Black Panther games on PSP, that’s 5 released games in the series we haven’t gotten and another in development. 🙁

    Also we’re probably never getting Yakuza 5. Time to give up and let it fade into obscurity with the other sadly Japan-only Sega franchises like Phantasy Star, Shining, Valkyria Chronicles and Sakura Wars. 🙁

  • Still waiting for Yakuza 5? How about Shenmue 3?

    Still waiting, Sega! STILL.WAITING.

  • Is their any journo on this planet who can find out what Sega’s devs are working on at all? I thought the new CEO knew what he was doing…

    Not even working on a new Virtua Fighter which seems strange… maybe Sega are finally done. I really wish Nintendo would purchase the company and put all Sega’s Legendary IP to good use.

    I miss the Yu Suzuki/AM2 Sega of old. And Yuji Nakas’ Sonic Team.
