Yakuza 5 (龍が如く5, Ryu ga Gotoku 5?) is a 2012 open-world action/adventure video game, developed and published by SEGA. The game was released in Japan in 2012 as a physical copy and was released worldwide in 2015 as a PlayStation Store exclusive. Unlike the previous PlayStation 3 video games in the series, this one re-utilizes the Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan!'s graphic engine. It is the fifth entry in the Yakuza series, and its successor is Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game's gameplay is relatively similar to previous games in the series, with a few changes. Similar to past games, gameplay is divided into two components; Adventure Mode and Combat Mode. Adventure Mode allows players to explore different areas and play spots across the city, including mini-games. The cities are also significantly bigger than previous games, providing more areas to explore, and is said to feature the greatest volume of play spots across cities in the series' history. The change between Adventure Mode and Combat Mode is also said to be more seamless than previous games, which previously involved a transitional change when encountering enemies whilst in Adventure Mode.
