Play as a taxi cab driver in Yakuza 5

Yakuza 5 - Race Battles

In Yakuza 5, Kazuma Kiryu trades in the gangster life for one as a taxi cab driver in Fukuoka. What does that mean for players? A mini-game, of course!

Occasionally when Kiryu picks up passengers, they'll discuss their problems with him. Players can choose how to respond to help settle these issues.

The game's race battles will match players against rivals on a highway. Sega's also putting in a car customization feature that allows you to swap paint jobs, add decals, and even change tires on your cab.

Yakuza 5 stars five characters and five cities, a first for the series. It follows Yakuza: Dead Souls, which came out this year for PS3.
