As it happens with most rumors, we advice you to take this with a grain of salt. Taking this out of the way, according to EGM, one of their source claims that Atlus is gearing up to bring Yakuza 5 to the West. While Atlus has done plenty of localizations, this might not be surprising one since Sega brought them last year, and since they already have a localization team – that has brought plenty of Japanese games to the West – it could happen.

They'd probably do a better job of it too, not assuming that there are parts that need to be edited out because the west wouldn't understand bull shit that Sega has pulled in the past.

If I had one game to recommend importing, it'd be Ryu Ga Gotoku: 5. Good on Atlus if they do this. People who haven't played this game, it is my 2nd favorite Yakuza game next to 1, 2 and 3. =)

PS3 games are generally not region-locked although I suppose we should be a bit concerned whenever Atlus is involved. Either way, I really hope this rumor turns out to be true.

Never played a Yakuza game, but that Ishin (think that was it) looked much more interesting to me. Are the numbered ones worth playing?

If this is true, Sega is doing exactly what many people have been hoping they would since acquiring Atlus.

On the contrary. Some of us like dubs and between NISA, XSEED, Aksys, etc., Atlus records the best ones. I know it's Yakuza, but if they want to do a dub I want to hear it.

Yes, definitely. Three is probably one of my favourite PS3 games.

Dual audio, if they must. But a dub would be as ill conceived as Sega's "all star" dub of Yakuza 1. JYB as Kazama might kill me.

I'm more concerned about it being dub only considering Atlus stance on that compared to the others. I don't mind doing dub, but to not offer the original when most other niche developers do.

Is there a way to link my bank account to Atlus for automatic payment? Just send me RGG5 and whatever new SMTs and Personas automatically when they come out.

Man if they do it, they got another great series under their belt for localization.

Though personally might be better for them to do Ishin first since would make a strong entrance on the PS4 and potentially bring in new fans. Since with Ishin its not like they need to play the other games first as there is no connection besides the likeness of characters from previous games recasted as characters for the ishin story.

Hopefully it's true. I think Atlus could also turn it into a much bigger success than Sega ever has given how well they manage to connect to their community when marketing.

Had a blast with 1, currently playing 2 which is even better - 3 is good as well and 4+5 are knocking it out of the park according to several posters here

So yeah, this franchise is pretty great
