Yakuza 5 Knocks It Out Of The Park With Baseball Mini-Game

By Spencer . July 18, 2012 . 2:29am


Tatsuo Shinada used to play for Nagoya’s Wyverns, but is banned from baseball after he started gambling. You can help him regain his honor in Yakuza 5.


In Shinada’s "another drama" he meets up with his former teammate Shirakawa who was a pitcher. Shinada runs into his high school coach too who offers guidance when other people challenge you.


Yakuza 5’s baseball mini-game has players move a cursor to aim before they take a swing. You can practice in batting cages before stepping onto a baseball field for the game.

    “Shinada, you have ashamed us, your family and your ancestors!”
    “Now you are here, you know what you must do to regain your honor.”
    “Then go and beat up everyone on the street in the name of Baseball!”

  • I do not like batting cage in Yakuza series, but after watching Haruhi Suzumiya no Yuutsu some years ago I started to like big baseball, lol. Seems like Yakuza 5 would be a totally new experience in the series.
