Taiga Saejima from Yakuza 4 returns in Yakuza 5 as a playable character. In his Another Drama storyline, Taiga goes hunting for a giant bear in Hokkaido, but loses consciousness on the mountain. An old man rescues him from freezing to death and tells him about a legendary beast called Yama Oroshi.
Searching for the monster is just one Taiga’s goals. To stay alive, Taiga has to hunt wild animals using a rifle and survive extreme the mountain’s harsh conditions. Weather changes in real time, which affects visibility and suddenly makes blizzards appear. In addition to his gun, Taiga has animal traps to help him out too.
Yakuza 5 comes out for PlayStation 3 in December.
