Yakuza 5 doesn’t continue the series’ storyline with zombies ruling Japan. The next game in the series picks up after Yakuza 4 and of course Kazuma Kiryu is the main character.
Famitsu revealed the game will have five locations: Tokyo, Fukuoka, Osaka, Sapporo, and Nagoya. Each area will be a large location for players to explore. The magazine mentioned the team improved their tech and it will show in Yakuza 5 which will have a seamless transition between the game’s adventure mode and battles. Team Yakuza also reduced loading times, tweaked the camera system, and improved the level of detail for character faces.
Their next challenge? Finding girls from the five areas to act as cheering fans. Yakuza 5 is in development for PlayStation 3.
