New Yakuza 5 Developer Interview Talks Up Hostess Clubs, Combat, and More

Sega and Sony Computer Entertainment have released the second developer interview for Yakuza 5.

Featured above, the new developer interview is between series general director Toshihiro Nagoshi, producer Masayoshi Yokoyama, and Sony Computer Entertainment director of Third Party Production Gio Corsi.

Some of the more interesting tidbits you can take away from both Nagoshi and Yokoyama’s responses are things like all the hostess club stories having a base in a real-life event (which happened at real-life hostess clubs), the dev team listening to fans who want features seen in other games, street fighting compared to real gangster fights, and more.

Yakuza 5 is launching in the west on PlayStation 3 this fall.
