Hatsune Miku Goes Gangster For Yakuza 5 Collaboration

By Spencer . November 22, 2012 . 4:02pm

Sega added Hatsune Miku into so many of their games she should be in Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed. I mean it’s a better fit than Yakuza 5, right?


During a NicoNico broadcast, Sega announced a Yakuza 5 and Hatsune Miku crossover. Shun Akiyama can walk by Hatsune Miku snow sculptures and win Miku toys from UFO catchers.

Haruka Sawamura who is playable for the first time in Yakuza 5 has a Hatsune Miku costume. Instead of getting into street fights, Haruka has dance battles that play like a rhythm game.

Yakuza 5 comes out for PlayStation 3 on December 6.

    Cool addition aside from all of the other SEGA lore which gets a feature in the world of Yakuza. Even if Haruka looks like an android ready to deal deat- dance moves as Hatsune Miku. >_>

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ahhh Miku ice statue. I remember seeing them when i visit Sapporo lol and……Miku never looks so scary lol.

    Realistic Miku never looks good.T_T 2D forever!!!!^_^

  • negineBIT

    Noooo. Miku looks too realistic. Why don’t they use different models like those in Miku’s concert? T____T

    • 3DBudgie

       It’s a costume for Haruka.

  • Maia Kasoya

    I’m curious about the Miku ice sculptures. Is something like this gonna be a snow sculpture? (Cause I think it’d be funny)

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Yup.^_^ Sapporo had those kind of mini festival where the people there create a lot of ice statue from many anime characters. One of them surely is Miku.^_^

      I also remember there are one Char “Mask” statue lol.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Too bloody awesome!

  • Those eyes… Is Haruka’s vision augmented?

    • Locklear93

      They kind of creep me out. <_<

    •  it’s actually a new type of byakugan eyes

  • tubers

    Dat loli… or jailbait.. then again maybe she’s 16 and legal xD

    • Yamaneko22

       She looks too old for a loli @[email protected]

      • tubers

        I whole heartedly AGREE xD Plus.. she’s got some bazoombas.. don’t know what I was thinking.. probably = young girls = loli.. w/c is wrong hahaha!

  • Darkrise

    ….I’m sorry but that’s more scary than cute.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Hatsune Miku what have Sega done to you?

  • Grenalie

    Wonder what will happen to this stuff if we ever get the game over here.

  • She looks more like a cosplayer than the Hatsune Miku people know and love. =S

    • Kevadu

      It’s supposed to be a Hatsune Miku costume.  I think that’s kind of what they were going for.

      • Ooooh, that explains that, then.  I’m still not a fan of it, though. And derpy derp derp, it says so right in the article. Note to self: less scotch before reading articles. XD

  • The more ther merrier.

  • Instant buy. 

  • Kai2591

    haha nice~

    I never played Yakuza before, but now that there’s Miku in it, that changes everything…Maybe I should get this game if it gets localized. Hopefully Japanese audio will be included too.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Yakuza had always Japanese audio,I dont think the will change that.

      • Kai2591

        really?? wow I’ve been missing out~

    • Scirm

      Bro, you should play every Yakuza game. This is how awesome these games are.

      • Kai2591

        haha noted. thanks.

  • DanteJones

    Something about how she looks is just… off.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      ‘Possessed by Satan’ would properly describe it.

  • DS23

    Miku will eat your soul like Richard D. James.

  • Bloodios

    Uh… went a little too far with the Mako infusion there…

  • The Miku cosplay is a bit creepy….

    • Demeanor

      Yeah, she’s got a Mikudayo vibe, nothing like the warm and funny Miku we all know and love! ^ ^ 

  • Alfy Masamune

    urghhhh, Miku in my fave game series, not happy!

  • Oh snap, please leave this intact when you localize this SEGA!

    • Belenger

       And now we know, Ryuga gotoku 5 definitly not getting localized.

  • pho_Enix

    No, just no.

  • badmoogle
  • brian yep

    Seems like most of us agree that Miku should be strictly 2D.

  • Göran Isacson

    Now all she needs to do is to start dancing like a robot, and the conversion will be complete. Miku will be ready to assimilate her mind and use her contacts to take control of not only the real worlds idols, but also the yakuza. Then her dominion shall be complete. The Mind Interface Control Uplink will have finished it’s true purpose. All hail the holograms. All hail the holograms…

    If you want Miku in Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed, there is actually a poll underway where you can vote to have her and other characters added as DLC.  Miku is among the leaders. Not sure if spam filters will let me add a link, so just google for “The Campaign for SEGA characters to become DLC” and it should take you to the thread on the SEGA forums.
