RUMOUR: Atlus to localize Yakuza 5 in the west!
According to a source in this months EGM, Sega’s recently purchased Atlus could be gearing up to localize Yakuza 5! If true this could be great news for players in the west as Atlus are the kings of localization and marketing for niche Japanese games!
From the article:

..Don’t rule out Yakuza 5 coming to America under the Atlus banner…

We await official word from Atlus but with Persona 5 coming for PS3 it would be great to bring out Yakuza 5 around the same time!
The article even goes so far to add Yakuza 5 as the header photo for the entire page! For a single line on a rumour page, It feels like at least EGM thinks this one will ring true.
