According to Japanese blog Andriasang, information circulated out of Famitsu magazine that Yakuza 5 will indeed launch on the PlayStation 3, as has been the case with previous Yakuza games.

Famitsu also revealed that Yakuza 5 will span across a number of locations in Japan, including Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka. Furthermore, Andriasang notes that Yakuza 5's story will connect in some way to the plot of Yakuza 4. Yakuza 5 will also feature improved load times and camera control.

Lastly, Famitsu confirmed that Kazuma Kiryu will serve as the lead protagonist in Yakuza 5, though no details have surfaced regarding other playable characters.

Yakuza 5 is currently under development. Sega has yet to confirm a release date for Japan.
