Sega, together with Sony’s Third-Party Production group, is bringing Yakuza 5 to North America this summer.
ive probably been crying for like 90 years since i heard it annouced to come over here. im so happy. i really hope this comes to ps4.
If there is enough support for it, it just might come to the Ps4, it's always about sales, so when it comes around tell your friends about it.
man I'm sooo happy right now I'm nearly crying and when it got announced I was trembling from the excitement. This PSX event has been insane so far. Best conference ever... And this is not hyperbole, this is the truth.
Awesome I can't wait
Thank you thank you thank you I will buy it
Can't... stop... crying... YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!! !
PS4: Greatness Awaits...on PS3.
Please release it on ps4 please, but I will buy a damn PS3 again to play this Sony and sea. But release it on ps4 and I will buy it again. Better yet release a Yakuxa collection on ps4 Maybe 2 part collection yakuza 1-3 Than 4-present on ps4 I would love one collection but money wise would happily pay $120 for complete collection on ps4
Mate, i love the idea of all Yakuza games for PS4. But first, we need to buy Yakuza 5 so Sega / Sony knew we support the series outside japan. If the game sells good than i'm sure they will continue to localize Yakuza Ishin, Zero, etc including an HD collection for PS4.
the fanbase won but what about the hd remasters?
I would have loved to have been at that meeting: "We want to localise Yakuza 1+2 so the west can play it. Thoughts?" "Let's give it to Nintendo!" "Nintendo... the company that only make family friendly, sparkly games... you want to give them a gritty, story driven, violent 18+ game?" "....Yes...." "I love it! Let's do that and hope our fans don't notice!" #SegaLogic
One of the best news on the keynote! Day 1 for sure!
I had a group watching the stream that broke out yelling excited when Gio announced this. This was an amazing show, but that pushed it over the top for me. I really hope that Sega lets them continue this trend to bring over Yakuza: Ishin and Zero as well. So awesome! For me, this was better than E3 and Gamescom.
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! Im playing Yakuza 4 now and I was dying thinking about the fact that I would never have the chance to play Yakuza 5, but now that changed...THANK YOU SONY!!!!!
@%#& YES! So long have I waited for the next in this series.
This literally was THE best moment of the show as far as I'm concerned. I literally have no voice right now from the insane amount of cheering I did. Yakuza is my favorite Sega franchise ever and easily amongst my top 5 in all of gaming, and I was DEVASTATED that Sega wasn't gonna bring it stateside. And then Sony goes" Screw you, Sega, if you're not bringing it, we are!" and made me cry manly tears of awesome. Pictures VERY MUCH related.
I hope sony will localize Ishin and Zero. I myself already bought Ishin and played it with a walkthrough. But i don't mind to buy it again just to support Yakuza series outside japan.
That's exactly the attitude we need, dude. This is a series in which our dollar speaks volumes towards it getting localized. The Sonic series is still alive cause both parents and kids are dumb, but Yakuza subsists off a much more mature audience and is much more resource-intensive to make and localize, so we need to support it as much as possible to keep it coming.
OMG! Yes yes yes, its been a long time coming!!! Sega my faith in you has been restored. This means Yakuza 0 has a good chance coming as well in the future. I feel like I just had the best Christmas gift ever and yet the gift ain't here yet!
It ain't Sega to thank here. Sega still hates western gamers. This is Sony's hand in motion.
Your right since the game is PSN only. Must be the only way to convince Sega they would profit from it. :/ But then again beggars can't be choosers. Now on to Yakuza 0! @Heyxyz (below) I think they will make it compatible down the line since the game is PSN only and they released Yakuza 4 and Dead Souls digitally too.
Don't get me wrong, I'm excited...but honestly if SEGA/SONY wanted to make more money they'd bring the PS4 one over. I love my PS3, it's just that so many people have already thrown their PS3s out the window. I have a feeling this won't sell well in the west (because PS3 and X360s are pretty much forgotten) and Sega will just use that as an excuse not to bring over future games.
My faith in Sony is reaffirmed. My faith in Sega remains in question. I was there at the PlayStation Experience to witness this announcement. Thank you to Sony's 3rd party production team. :)
