Yakuza 5 launches on PlayStation 3 next week

UPDATE: Yakuza 0 confirmed for North America, but not Europe.

UPDATE 07/12/2015 8.03pm: Sega has clarified that Yakuza 0 is only confirmed for a North American release in the west.

"Right now, we're only confirming for NA," a Sega representative told Eurogamer. "The 'NA&EU' endslate was from an incorrect version of the trailer."

Of course this doesn't mean Yakuza 0 won't come to Europe, but rather it's just not confirmed yet. So keep those fingers crossed!

UPDATE 05/12/2015 8.41pm: Yakuza 0 may not be coming to Europe after all. Or at least it doesn't have a confirmed release.

"We know the Yakuza series is loved by all its fans in Europe but unfortunately at this time we're not able to confirm a Yakuza 0 EU release," Sega stated on Twitter.

This is odd as the trailer ended with the following image stating that it would come to Europe:

We've asked Sega for clarification and will update once we know more.

ORIGINAL STORY 05/12/2015 7.03pm: Sony just confirmed a couple of Yakuza-related newsbites - firstly, that PlayStation 3 entry Yakuza 5 would launch in the West next Tuesday, 8th December.

It's been a long, three year wait since the game originally launched in Japan, but all DLC will be included.

Yakuza 0, the PS4 entry set in 1988, has also been confirmed as coming Westwards. No release date for that yet, but here's a shiny trailer:
