This morning at the PlayStation Experience Keynote, Yakuza 5 was announced to be released in North America. Additionally, Yakuza 4 and Dead Souls were announced to finally make their PSN Debuts. The news is immensely exciting for any fan of the series as many had lost hope that Sega would ever localize a game in the series again. Besides a general Summer time-frame, no exact date for when 5 will be released, but believe it not, 4 and Dead Souls can be purchased on PSN right now.
