Yakuza 5 was announced for western release at last year’s PlayStation Experience.

At this year’s PlayStation Experience, we finally have a release date – this Tuesday, December 8.

This has been a long time coming for fans of the series, and now we all have a good reason to get our PlayStation 3 systems out.

Ever since the poor performance of Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls, it’s been largely assumed that the series was done getting western releases, making just last year’s announcement exciting on its own. Now it’s just days away from actually being in our hands and on our screens. I guess I might have to put down Fallout 4 finally.
