Yakuza 5 Launch Trailer Sets the Stage

Sega has released the launch trailer for the recently released Yakuza 5, available on PlayStation 3 as of yesterday. The open world JRPG blends crime drama and high action gameplay in one of the most immersive worlds yet in a series that has always been a little behind with its western releases. In Yakuza 5 players take control of former mobster Kazuma Kiryu, alongside a number of other players in the Japanese underworld as another great war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance is set to break off once again. The war will span several massive recreations of Japanese cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Sapporo, and Nagoya.

Yakuza 5 was released yesterday via PSN, alongside the announcement that the PS4 prequel, Yakuza 0, will also be making its way west, although a release date for that has yet to be given. The dice have been cast and the lots have been drawn, Yakuza 5 is available now on PlayStation 3. Check out the new trailer below.
