One of the most devastating things fan of a series can hear is that the next entry will not be brought to their country. That happened to fans of Sega’s Yakuza series, when Yakuza 5 released in Japan in 2012 and never went any further.
Sega recently bought Atlus, and since Atlus has a history of localizing niche titles, there’s a new rumor that it may turn to Yakuza 5 as its next localization project.
This would be great news for fans of the series, but we aren’t holding our breaths, since there is little to back it up. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything new.
