First look at Yakuza 5

Yakuza 5 - Haruka

Sega has provided a glimpse at the characters and cities of Yakuza 5.

Kazuma Kiryu, Taiga Saejima, Shun Akiyama, Haruka, and Tatsuo Shinada (a new character) will star in the game — a total of five main characters and one more than ever featured in the past. Players of the recent Yakuza: Dead Souls should recognize most of the established characters except for Saejima, who appeared in Yakuza 4.

The screenshots also show the game's central locations and their respective districts: Sapporo/Tsukimino, Tokyo/Kamurocho, Nagoya/Kineicho (shown below), Osaka/Soutenbori, and Fukuoka/Nagasugai. Kamurocho should be highly familiar to veteran players; others are new.
