Atlus to Bring Yakuza 5 to the West 0


The Yakuza 5 was originally released in December 2012 for the Playstation 3, and it has remained a Japan-exclusive entry, much to the consternation of fans of the series. However, the gaming mag EGM recently churned out a rumor that the game may be getting a localization courtesy of industry heroes Atlus.

Sega, which is responsible for publishing the Yakuza franchise in the past, has acquired Atlus last year so it’s not surprising if Atlus did get permission to localize the much-requested title. One key thing about this is Atlus may do a better job of porting the games as the previous Western releases of the series usually ended up with a lot of content on the cutting room floor.
