Tatsuo Shinada is new to the Yakuza games. He used to be a baseball player for the Nagoya Wyverns, so when he brawls he uses like bats. Famitsu explains, when he can’t get his hands on a cylindrical object Shinada fights with his fists. He also has a tackling move where you press different buttons to grapple an opponent.


Yakuza 5 has sub stories where players can learn additional fighting techniques and similar to Romancing SaGa you can learn moves in the heat of battle when your character has a "revelation."


Yakuza 5 comes out for PlayStation 3 in December.
