    I hope Yakuza 5 gets a NA/EU release. 3 and 4 are two of my favorite games everr

    • YangTerlupakan

      why u so worried ??? yakuza is not Tales series, only yakuza kenzan never come to NA because that game is set in feodal japan

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        Given Sega’s recent digital restructure, there’s reason to worry.

        • Budgiecat

          Also their recent lawsuit against Level 5 which screams desperation

  • Raiyu

    Yakuza 5 sold very well, only a bit short of Yakuza 4 sales but still great nonetheless.

    Hopefully Sega are able to localize this game, I still need to pick up Dead Souls

    • Xenovelgr

      Dead Souls was fun, but got old fast. It’s a shame the gameplay got so repetitive, the story is hilarious! And finally being able to control Majima…

  • bebestorm117

    Good sales for Nintendo hardware…. I Hope Y5 localization has started!

  • MrKappa

    Wait the WiiU just came out in Japan?

    Anyways it looks like Yakuza is Sega’s best selling series. I doubt they see those sales numbers even with Sonic.

  • DarthBrian

    Poor Zombi-U. :(

  • zakou

    Yay for Yakuza 5 ^^ Sega must localize it!

  • Speedo Redempteur

    yakuza 5 trashing the competion ?

    Just like it should

  • PrinceHeir

    Yakuza 5 on top!!

    Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney hanging on :)
