The Yakuza Studio team currently has no plans to localize Yakuza 5 for Western audiences, series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has confirmed.
Despite demand for a Western release, the developer is currently focused on Yakuza Restoration, which will be a launch title for the PlayStation 4 in Japan next year. ”The Yakuza Studio team is a fixed size, and we have to choose between forging ahead with the next game or localizing the one that just came out,” he told Edge.
“This time the size of the game was so large, so rather than localizing that game we chose to focus our manpower on the new game.”
Sega is also yet to announce a Western release for Yakuza Restoration. However, Nagoshi stated that it is something that he would ”definitely love” to see happen if the team has ”the manpower and money to do it.”
