Yakuza 5 PS3

Proof that your incessant requests can materialise as real releases: Yakuza 5 is coming to the PlayStation 3 in Europe and North America next year. Ever since Sony announced its new third-party production initiative, this has been one of the most demanded titles – and the platform holder has struck a deal with SEGA to make it happen. We’re not quite sure how this has got the green light, but we’re guessing that the Japanese giant is paying to cover the localisation costs.

For those out of the loop, the title continues the tale of Kazuma Kiryu, and also sprinkles a handful of other playable characters into the mix, including the protagonist's adopted daughter, Haruka Sawamura. The title boasts a brand new graphics engine, in addition to dozens of fresh minigames, spanning taxi racing right the way through to Hatsune Miku-esque dancing missions. You can check out the announcement trailer below.
