The long-awaited Yakuza 5 video game is finally going to be available on PlayStation 3 in North America later this year.

The game features five distinct locales across Japan including Kamurocho, a fictionalized recreation of the Kabukicho red-light district. In many ways, this particular game is set to act as the 'San Andreas' of the Yakuza series, in that it is set to take the core concept of the game and take the series to new heights in terms of player engagement and graphic immersion.

If you're a fan of this kind of video game, you'll be excited to hear that Sega is currently working on the next iteration of the game, Yakuza 6. Moreover, an HD remake of the original Yakuza games are also in the works, although these have only been confirmed for sale in Japan so far.
