Sega and Sony Bringing Yakuza 5 to PS3

Sega and Sony Computer Entertainment America teamed up to bring a bunch of Yakuza games to North America and Europe. First things first, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls are now available on the PlayStation Network. Yakuza 5, on the other hand, is coming to North American and European PlayStation 3s in 2015, according a post on the PlayStation Blog.

For those unfamiliar with the open-world action game, Yakuza 5 puts you in the shoes of Kazuma Kiryu and four other protagonists who live in the Yakuza underworld. All the aforementioned Yakuza games are coming to PSN thanks to the #BuildingtheList initiative that PlayStation is using to bring some of the most requested games.

Apart from being able to control five characters in five different settings, the game has other new features, including a new engine, mini-games, an enhanced battle system and side-stories.
