Sega describes the game:
Yakuza 5 continues the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu alongside four other protagonists, following their struggles and conflicts in the seedy underbelly of Japan's Yakuza underworld. Featuring a new graphics engine versus its predecessor, Yakuza 5 takes players to five major Japanese cities to venture through a life of crime and power.
The game also features mini-games and side stories that focus on the different protagonists.
Yakuza 5 (Ryū ga Gotoku 5) shipped in Japan in 2012.
