Yakuza 5 has more playable characters, more places in Japan to explore, and souped-up cabaret clubs. Players can visit one of the clubs and chat with the hostesses working there. While conversations in previous games were mostly text, Sega says most lines will have voice acting and girls will speak in regional dialects. The free action system should give players a more realistic conversation too.
Not quite sure if having a girl invite you to play a "chocolate stick game" leading into a kiss is realistic though…
You can purchase Gacha Drinks at cabaret clubs, which might reward you with rare items.
When you first meet a girl at Rose Hip she will give you her business card. Then you can choose what you want to say to her using the free action system. Characters can learn more topics by listening to gossip in town.
If she likes you, you can bring her out on an actual date. You can walk around town and share a meal. Each character in Yakuza 5 has unique dates that expand the game’s storyline.
Yakuza 5 is slated for release on December 6.
