About

The legendary dragon returns to the criminal underworld of Yakuza. Kazuma Kiryu, once known as the Dragon of Dojima, was living a quiet life as a taxi driver in Hakata after severing all his ties with the underworld. However, at the dawn of the bloody turf war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance, Kazuma is forced to accept his inescapable fate and returns to a life filled with crime and violence to protect his loved ones.

Yakuza 5 continues the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu and four other protagonists—Haruka Sawamura, Taiga Saejima, Tatsuo Shinada, and Shun Akiyama. The saga plays out across five major Japanese cities—Tokyo, Osaka, Hakata, Nagoya and Sapporo. Yakuza 5 also features “Another Drama,” which is a series of extensive sub-plots that focus on each protagonist. The battle system and customization system have been enhanced from Yakuza 4 and various mini-games are available in the well-known locales from the series including night clubs and popular Club Sega locations.

Key Features

  • Five locations to explore, five stories to tell. For the first time in the series, explore the stories of five playable characters in five settings across Japan.
  • A newly enhanced battle system provides seamless transitions between Adventure mode and Combat mode.
  • Get to know all five characters through extensive sub-plots in Another Drama mode.
  • Explore Japan’s neon-lit nightlife with enhanced nightclub interactions and over 30 mini-games.
