Yakuza 5 Hits Us With A Barrage Of Battle Screenshots

By Spencer . September 12, 2012 . 1:33am


Sega revamped the battle system for Yakuza 5. The PlayStation 3 game will have seamless transitions into battles and people in the city have more vibrant reactions to fights.




Heat actions and "revelations" that unlock new attacks are back for Yakuza 5. Climax Heat moves are new powerful attacks that you can activate under certain conditions. These are supposed to be trump cards that you can use to reverse a battle.

      Yeah, I read this maybe 10 minutes after waking up and read it exactly the same way. Sadly, it was not “US”.
