Yakuza Remastered Collection is Headed to PS4, Yakuza 3 Out Today Digitally

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

A leak on the American Playstation Store has revealed the existence of a Yakuza Remastered Collection. This collection is the localised Western versions of the previously Japan-only PS4 versions of Yakuza 3, 4 and 5. The games are being released digitally first with a new localisation and all the content that was previously cut for the Western versions.

Yakuza 3 will release today with Yakuza 4 releasing on October 29th 2019 and Yakuza 5 will arrive on the 11th of February 2020. Once all 3 digital releases are available, a boxed collection of all 3 titles will be available as well. Pre-orders will supposedly arrive at some point today but at time of writing I can’t find any listings.

The boxed version comes with some really cool exclusives if you pre-order the day one edition. Yakuza 3 and 4 come on one disc with Yakuza 5 on a seperate disc. This is because it is also bundled with a PS3 style case for Yakuza 5 which infamously only got a digital release in PAL regions. Also included is a 2 disc digipack case which houses the entire collection.

Yakuza 5 May Well Be Launching on November 5th if These PSN Avatars Are Anything to Go By

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

yakuza5logo

You can now pre-order Yakuza 5-themed avatars on the PSN store. The pre-order date? 5th of November. Could this be a clue as to the game’s Western release date? Quite possibly.

The avatars are actually marked as Yakuza 5-themed items and you can pre-order them by clicking here. Why you’d want to pre-order tiny images for 25p is beyond me but that’s a thing you can do if you’re losing your grip on reality. Happy times!

Yakuza 5 should launch exclusively on PS3 via the PSN store on November 5th. Should.

Atlus Rumoured to Be Working on SEGA Ports “Don’t Rule Out Yakuza 5″ UPDATE Atlus Debunk Rumour

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

UPDATE

Jason Schreier of Kotaku has apparently been in contact with Atlus USA who have said that they are unaware of any work being done on a Yakuza 5 port. He adds that, “they’re not a big company and they just announced like 4 new Persona games. Seems pretty unlikely to me.” Are Atlus USA covering up a leak or is this EGM just speculating?

Thanks to TimmiT for bring this information to our attention.

ORIGINAL STORY

SEGA’s acquisition of Atlus may result in one of the most fan-requested ports in recent years.

Rumours posted in this month’s EGM magazine confirm that Atlus is working on ports for SEGA and that we shouldn’t “rule out Yakuza 5 coming to America under the Atlus banner”.

Nothing has been confirmed at this time and it’s not clear whether EGM are just speculating or whether they have some insider information, but the feature comes with the huge Yakuza 5 header which hints that the magazine might know more than they’re letting on.

One can only hope!

Edge Investigate What the Japanese Critics Are Saying About Yakuza 5

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Edge have run an interesting feature discussing the critical reaction to Yakuza 5 which was released in Japan on December 6th 2012:

“A massive game then, full of quirky and unique content, with a compelling tale tying it all together. As the current generation of consoles finally seems to be coming to its close, it’s a shame that even with such glowing praise in its native Japan, there haven’t been any plans announced to release in the west what what could be one of PS3′s last major Japanese exclusives. “In terms of volume and quality of content, this is the high point in the Yakuza series. A definite ‘buy’,” says Impress Watch. Would that we could.”

Yakuza 5 is still without a Western release date as is the HD re-release of Yakuza 1 & 2. Get your act together SEGA!
