Yakuza 5 was featured on the PlayStation Blog today, with new information on what people will get when the purchase the PlayStation 3 game. Most notable is the inclusion of all the DLC that originally launched alongside the game in Japan when someone purchases the game. This means additional side stories centered on Kazuma Kiryu, Haruka Sawamura, Shun Akiyama, Taiga Saejima, and newcomer Tatsuo Shinada.
People who pre-order Yakuza 5 can get something else. The PlayStation Store has a digital offer available. If someone purchases the $39.99 game, they will receive a Fulfiller of Dreams theme with pictures of Kazuma, Haruka, Shun, Taiga, Tatsuo, and some minor characters. It is a static theme, however, so there is no animation.
The final Welcome to the World of Yakuza Developer video has also been released. In it, Gio Corsi, Sony’s Director of Third Party Production and Developer Relations asks Toshihiro Nagoshi, Yakuza series General Director, and Masayoshi Yokoyama, Yakuza 5’s Producer, questions people submitted on Twitter using the #Yakuza5PS hashtag on Twitter.
Yakuza 5 will come to the PlayStation 3 before 2015 ends. An exact release date has yet to be announced.
