It isn’t all taxi driving, arcade frequenting, and bowling in Yakuza 5. Sometimes, the characters have to get tough when dealing with the criminal underworld. Each of them, with the exception of Haruka, ends up involved in fights sometimes, and Sega has released new screenshots showing what happens when the gloves come off and the street signs come out.
In Yakuza 5, each of the main male characters has his own fighting style. That means each one has his own Heat Actions that’s true to his abilities and personality. They all also get their own Special Techniques.
While Haruka doesn’t fight traditionally, she does engage in Dance Battles. This is a rhythm game with five possible music genres. Haruka’s performance depends on the player’s accuracy in pressing the action buttons.
Yakuza 5 still has a tentative mid-November release window. It will be a PlayStation Store exclusive for people with PlayStation 3s.
