Yakuza 5 Has Ramen Making And Snowball Fight Mini-Games

Kazuma Kiryu has two jobs in Yakuza 5. He works as a taxi cab driver in Fukuoka and as a ramen shop chef in one of Yakuza 5’s mini-games. Customers come in and you have to hit buttons to cook ramen to order, but if you mash like crazy you’ll overcook the noodles. As you get better the ramen shop game shortens the time between orders.

Haruka’s mini game puts her in a comic duo. Players choose what Haruka says and if you pick something funny the audience will laugh.

In Nagoya, Tatsuo Shinada is competing in the Cochins Cup Classic. Players race chickens in this mini-game with the goal of being a Yokozuna class chicken racer. During the race you can press a button to give your chicken a burst of speed.

Taiga Saejima has an interesting game since it changes Yakuza 5 into a first person… snowball fight. Whoever gets the most points when time runs out is the winner. Saejima’s mini-game also has a four player battle royale mode.
