Yakuza 5

96 posts in this topic

Developer : Sega

Publisher : Sega

Producer : Toshihiro Nagoshi

Platform : PS3


The setting of Yakuza 5 will be Kamurocho along with another city. Current candidates include Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka.

Nagoshi would not share the playable character count, nor would commit to the game being either single hero or multi hero.

They've not yet decided if they'll have hostess auditions for the game's hostess component.

Nagoshi says that it's unthinkable to have a Yakuza game without main character Kazuma Kiryu. He views Kiryu as Mario-like for the series.

Nagoshi really wants to make a "chapter zero" like entry which is set in the past of the Tojo Clan.


Sega has now a Survey where everyone can vote on what City the would like to see beside Kamurocho

Thats a good news.. Yakuza series is one of the most underrated series in west...


If this game releases in japan around march 2012 then I guess English release will be in 2013. Thats how the do it..the english release is always a year late... until then..

The series should just die quietly.










detail from famitsu

- Haruka is the main character

- Shinda is a former baseball character

- Shinda was given a life ban for gambling

- Five cities: Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka

- Each of the five characters lives in one of the cities above

- Story connects with Yakuza 4
