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

Monday, February 3rd, 2014


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.


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!
