Yakuza 5 will launch for PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe on Tuesday, December 8, Sega announced during the PlayStation Experience 2015 opening keynote.
Additionally, Sega confirmed it is bringing the PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza 0 in the Americas both physically and digitally. Here’s the rundown:
We’re bringing the back the 1980s by localizing and releasing Yakuza 0 in the Americas. Set in Tokyo, December 1988, players will have a chance to see where it all started for series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Follow Kiryu, not yet the Dragon of Dojima, as he tries to regain his honor after getting blamed for a botched debt collection that ended in murder. Additionally, for the first time in a numbered game, gamers will be able to play as Goro Majima, the Mad Dog of Shimano, as he tries to rejoin his clan. Each character will posses their own unique fighting style and abilities that can be utilized to kick some rival Yakuza butt.
In the 1980s, Tokyo was filled with decadence, greed, sin, and above all else, cold hard cash. C.R.E.A.M. is the motto, and everyone wants in on the action. Thankfully Kiryu and Majima are the “entrepreneurial” type and will have plenty of ways to make, spend, and take money.
