    The 1980s in Japan were defined by unprecedented amounts of decadent overindulgence - and nothing was out of greed's reach, especially in Kamurocho.

In Yakuza 5, each protagonist possesses unique fighting sty... more.

Admittedly, I have not played much of the Yakuza series, and if you caught our livestream last week you saw the bulk of what I've played already. But here's one important lesson that I've learned: You're not acting like Yakuza 24/7. Well, I mean, you are - Kiryu, Shinada, all the rest of the protagon... more.
