So, Yakuza 5 was inevitable really. Sega’s heavy-hitting fan favourite looks like it’s going to keep on adding version numbers and expanding until the end of time. Or at least until sales slow down and Sega finds something else that people like just as much.
It’s been officially acknowledged an got its first images out into the wild via an official site. It looks like they’re going all out on the number “5” with that many main character profiled on the official site. It’s all in Japanese so I’ve no idea what the details are but some of the little pictures are nice.
There are some pictures of five locations too, including Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka. No western release has been confirmed but the game will be on store shelves in Japan this December so we’d expect it to travel west sometime next year, as its most recent predecessors all did.
