It looks like we’ll be diving deep into the bonkers world of Yakuza 5 sooner rather than later. The game was recently rated by the German ratings board, the USK, for the PlayStation 3. Today, if you head on over to the North American PlayStation Store you’ll find that there’s a bunch of Yakuza 5 avatars available to buy, download and apply to your profile. You can find them here.
Yakuza 5 has been out for a while now in Japan, but SEGA has been – shall we say – a little bit slow on getting it off the Japanese shores and out into the Western world. Hopefully these avatars appearing on the PSN are an indication that the game is nearing its release here in the West. There’s no official word yet from SEGA as to when Yakuza 5 will be available, but it’s coming sometime this “Fall” as a digital download via the PlayStation Network.
