Yakuza 5 is coming west and bringing many authentic insights into Japanese life with it. Apparently.
The latest in Sega’s behind-the-scenes Yakuza 5 videos answers some burning questions from series fans, namely: are hostess clubs real? Like really real? The way they’re depicted in-game?
According to Yakuza Studio: yes. All the stories are based on real-life anecdotes. Welp.
The video also details Yakuza 5’s super moves and how the team has always wanted to show how painful street fighting really is, among other delights.
Part one of this video series is available here. Yakuza 5 is launching digitally on PlayStation 3 sometime this year.
