In this new video interview, Sony’s Gio Corsi sat down with two of the developer of Yakuza five for the second part of in interview in which they talk about the new game, the uniquely Japanese history of the Yakuza, and then answer some questions from fans online. The first part of this interview can be found here.
Yakuza 5 is the latest in a long line of games and picks up where Yakuza 4 left off, with players experiencing the seedy Japanese underworld through the eyes of a member of the Yakuza itself. In an open world setting, players can then take on jobs, meet with fellow members of the Japanese criminal element, and try to survive in a harsh urban jungle.
Originally released in 2012 in Japan, Yakuza 5 finally hits store shelves in the west this fall in both physical and digital — release exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
