While there were plenty of big announcements over the weekend out of the Playstation Experience, but arguably the biggest one was from Sega when they announced that the highly praised PS3 title, Yakuza 5, will be coming over to North America sometime in 2015.

The game is a continuation of the cult hit series and will feature 5 major Japanese Cities and 5 playable characters, it has received a high amount of praise from Japanese gaming when it launched back in 2012. The game will finally be hitting Western shelves after Sega CCO announced that there was no plans for the game to be released outside of Japan.

While we wait for the upcoming brawler, it would be a good idea to refresh yourself with the story and gameplay of the series. Sega will be placing the highly recommended and praised Yakuza 4 and its Zombie-shooter spin-off Yakuza: Dead Souls on the Playstation Network this week.
