SEGA and SCEA Third Party Production announced the western localization for Yakuza 5 last year during PSX, but since then we haven't heard much information about the game. That changes today, as SEGA has released the first of three developer interviews in a lead up to the game's release later this year in North America and Europe.
In the video above, Gio Corsio of SCEA Third Party Production team sits down with two of the developers from the series, general director of the Yakuza series Toshihiro Nagoshi and Yakuza 5 producer Masayoshi Yokoyama. They discuss the game's theme, scope, and to answer some user questions. Two more of these videos are planned to be released at a later date.
Yakuza 5 will release later this year in both North America and Europe. The game will be released exclusively as a PS3 digital release on the PlayStation Store.
