First Gameplay of the English Localization for Yakuza 5

Sega has published the first live footage of the English localization for Yakuza 5.

Featured above, the hour and a half long playthrough was handled by Yakuza 5 Localization Producer Sam Mullen and PR Rep John Hardin (audio is cut out until 30 seconds in).

You can expect most of what the series is known for, including street fighting, chicken races, taxi driving, and more.

Yakuza 5 currently has no release date, however, a previous (and later redacted) mid-November release window is something we’re expecting – otherwise we’ll keep you guys posted.
