Sega Comments on Yakuza 5 Release Date Speculation: Production ‘Wrapping Up Nicely’

Yakuza 5

After a recent SEGA Blog let slip – and promptly removed – the fact that Yakuza 5 was expected to arrive in the West in mid-November, the company has today put out an official statement regarding the speculation.

In a press release, a Sega representative said: “In terms of release date, we don’t have anything concrete, but production is wrapping up nicely and we hope to have a solidified launch date to announce soon.”

In addition to the statement, the company also released a number of new assets, including a plethora of screenshots, as well as descriptions for each of the game’s protagonists.

Yakuza 5 has been an awful long time coming, having originally released for the PS3 in Japan in December 2012. It will be released for the console, presumably via the PSN, in Europe and North America in the near future.
