Back in April, Gio Corsi at PlayStation visited the SEGA office in Tokyo to interview two of the developers behind the legendary Yakuza series, General Director Toshihiro Nagoshi and Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama.
In this first of three interview videos, Gio goes deep into the details of Yakuza 5 and also gets answers to some of the questions fans sent to #Yakuza5PS.

Today is a very special and exciting day for all of us at SEGA. Partnering with our friends at Sony Computer Entertainment America, we just revealed our plan to bring Yakuza 5 to the U.S. and Europe at PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas. We also announced that Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls are available on PlayStation Network starting today.
We are thrilled to finally announce the release date of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Built from the ground up, this re-imagined version of the Sega Genesis/Mega drive classic will be available for download on PlayStation Network on September 3rd at $14.99.
Hi Everyone. Back in May, we released the first part of our Castle of Illusion Behind the Scenes Video, which gave you a glimpse of how the original game was developed.
Mickey Mouse is returning to star in Castle of Illusion, a fantastical HD reimagining of the classic Sega Genesis game. The game is scheduled to release in summer of 2013. We know that Castle of Illusion has a special place in many gamers’ hearts. Sega studios Australia is putting lots of care into this new 2D/3D game.
Fighting game fans worldwide have spoken. Since the release last week, we’ve seen an overwhelming amount of support for Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. Today, we are releasing our tutorial video #3 for Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown that we put together while working closely with AM2 (the development team) and VF community members. We are hoping that these videos will help newcomers pick up VF5’s advanced techniques quickly!
Also, just a few weeks ago in LA, we teamed up with fighting game legend Alex Valle and his crews from Level|Up Series to host a Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Pre-launch party. We’ve invited the VF legends, Fuudo and Chibita, from Japan to demonstrate the game and also take on 20 or so challengers.
Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is the definitive version of the popular Virtua Fighter 5 series, developed by AM2. The game introduces two new playable characters, overhauled fighting mechanics and dynamic and interactive fighting arenas. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown also includes console-only features such as a robust Training Mode, eight-player Online Room Match Mode and a match record feature to replay, save, and upload fights.
In its PSN debut, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is $14.99 and each character costume customization DLC pack is $4.99 each at launch, with each pack containing a whopping 600-900 customization items.
