After four main games and two spin-offs, you probably have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Yakuza 5: weapon-filled brawling action across Japan's major metropolitan areas. While brutal and cinematic, the brawling aspect is only the smallest part of what you can do in Yakuza 5.
Many side activities return from past games such as the series' infamous hostess clubs. And new activities include hitting up a local Sega arcade for some Taiko Drum Master or Virtua Fighter 2, tweeting about the strange events you see on the streets between story missions, or running around with a ramen cart. You can even take a break from the cityscape to go hunting.
