Yakuza 5 Gets a Long Gameplay Trailer and a Longer Story Trailer

Yakuza 5 is steadily marching towards its release in Japan, but we’ll probably have to wait for a long time before Sega gets around releasing it in the west (assuming that they will, and they better not disappoint).

Today the publisher released two trailers of the game, for a whopping 18 minutes of footage. Of course they’re in Japanese, but they’re still much better than nothing.

The first is a gameplay trailer, focusing on the incredibly varied features of the upcoming game, from the five “another drama” branches, to the metric ton of minigames, passing by the customary hostess club gameplay and a whole lot more.

The second trailer is a full-fledged 10 minutes-long presentation of the story, giving us a glimpse on what will cause Kazuma Kiryu to leave his new and peaceful life as a cab driver and go back to Kamurocho, joining new and returning characters in a new battle.

Personally, I can’t wait to get my hands on it, as it promises to be the biggest Yakuza game yet.  So, Sega, what about that localization?

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
