The Sega Blog has provided everyone with an update regarding their upcoming entry in the Yakuza series Yakuza 5. An official release date has yet to be announced, however Sega is currently aiming for “mid-November.”
Sega also said the reason why Yakuza 5 doesn’t have a release date is due to localization issues. The company has said that the translation is done, but they are having problems inserting text as they have been experiencing bugs causing the English text to not appear properly in place of where the Japanese text would be.
Yakuza 5 will be released on Playstation 3 via the Playstation Store.
