While its release date in Western markets still remain a mystery even today, SEGA have continued to promote their long-awaited release of upcoming open world RPG Yakuza 5 with a new batch of screenshots featuring the game’s battle system.
In Yakuza 5, each of the male protagonists have their own unique fighting styles, skills and upgradeable special abilities; meaning that your fighting experience with each character won’t be identical with each character.When fighting, each character can use weapons if they possess them. These weapons include pliers, wooden swords, street sighs and the occasional bicycle. In Haruka’s case, she takes on enemies using her own distinct dance battle system, representing her quest to become an idol.
Yakuza 5 is currently being localised into English for the PlayStation 3, and is planned for release digitally via the PlayStation Store sometime in the future.
