Yakuza V

Pub­lisher/ de­vel­oper Sega (Yakuza Stu­dio) For­mat PS3 Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease 2015



Sony’s Third Party Re­la­tions di­vi­sion – to­gether with sus­tained ap­peals from se­ries fans – is re­spon­si­ble for fi­nally con­vinc­ing Sega to lo­calise a game that launched in Ja­pan over two years ago. As with its pre­de­ces­sors, Yakuza5 is a mul­ti­stranded tale of good-hearted gang­sters, sharp suits, elab­o­rate tat­toos and UFO Catch­ers, this time with added rhythm-ac­tion dance-offs and griz­zly-bear brawls. Hav­ing spent over 40 hours with the Ja­panese ver­sion, we’re ready to call this the best in the se­ries to date. Hope­fully we’ve not got much longer to wait to find out if the plot can match up to those thrillingly crunchy street fights.
