Yakuza 5’s Newcomer Fights With Baseball Bats

By Spencer . August 21, 2012 . 7:10pm


Tatsuo Shinada is new to the Yakuza games. He used to be a baseball player for the Nagoya Wyverns, so when he brawls he uses like bats. Famitsu explains, when he can’t get his hands on a cylindrical object Shinada fights with his fists. He also has a tackling move where you press different buttons to grapple an opponent.


Yakuza 5 has sub stories where players can learn additional fighting techniques and similar to Romancing SaGa you can learn moves in the heat of battle when your character has a "revelation."


Yakuza 5 comes out for PlayStation 3 in December.

    What, revelations happen during fights now? Does that mean they won’t be preceeded by the most hilarious, over-the-top, absurd crap anymore? Boo.

    • I bet they still wil be handled outside of battle as well as in battle.

      and knowing Kiryu He might have revelations during cab rides or something like that.

    lol, not really…I just liked him and his substores moreso than the others, not near the ending his main storyline though. His introduction was fun…I was hoping they would build on that. =/
