Yakuza 5 Plot Sounds Epic, But There Will Still Be Porn Stars

With the announcement that Yakuza 5 will feature five main characters in five major cities across Japan, and a new game engine to upgrade the outdated look of the series, Sega has released a teaser site and revealed the back story of the new chapter.

Back story:

2010. The feud between the two yakuza clans, the Tojo Clan and the Ueno Seiwa Clan came to a close with the unexpected revelation of a conspiracy by the police force.

Afterwards, under the orders of the 6th chairman of the Tojo Clan, Daigo Dojima, a major reconfiguration of the yakuza organisation was executed and a truce was made with the Omi Alliance.

Until…

December, 2012. The 7th chairman of the Omi Alliance is on his deathbed.

The death of the 7th chairman.

It would mean the end of peace between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance and an all-out war between the East and West clans.

In order to prepare for the potential upheaval of the Japanese crime underworld, the Tojo Clan is forced to do the forbidden in order to strengthen their organisation.

Hokkaido, Nagoya, Fukuoka…

Reaching out to the old clans based in the larger cities, they seek to do what has never been done before and join forces to create a new organisation to rival the Omi Alliance.

A risky new alliance that would breach the old barriers of Clan territories.

But in order to avoid a potential war between the East and West, Daigo Dojima swallows his pride and heads to Fukuoka…

But already the wheels had been set in motion.

A plan that would envelop all the Clans in Japan in a massive war. The curtain now slowly rises.

Starting with the death of one man…

As the mountain that is the Tojo Clan begins to move, one by one, the "sleeping players" begin to awaken.

Fukuoka, Sapporo, Osaka, and Nagoya.

For what they believe in, and for the 'dream' of one girl, those who had parted ways to walk their own paths are once again thrust into the whirlwind of conflict.

One, to give up a 'dream.'

One, to realise a 'dream.'

And another to regain a 'dream…'

When the 'dreams' of 4 men and 1 girl cross paths, the truth that spans 5 cities is revealed…

Yeah, it sounds epic and all, but I'm sure it'll still have its porn star companions.

    I am excite.
    Not in regards to the porn stars.
    Keeping multiple characters is pretty cool, I guess. Intertwining stories feel like an actual, massive story, rather than just one man being drawn back into the life and having to fix everything up.
    I liked that they kept Akiyama. Always thought he was the 'best' of the 'new' characters from 4.

    So yeah.
    Woo!

    "When the ‘dreams’ of 4 men and 1 girl cross paths..." I think I saw a movie like that once at a bucks night...

    But yeah, looking forward to this - I enjoyed Yakuza 3 and 4. Skipped the zombie one, though, although I may decide to give it a shot later. Can somebody who's played it give me their impressions of it? How does it compare to the previous games?

      It has all the 'weird-ness' of the Yakuza games but it doesn't play like a Yakuza game, since there is no Hand-to-Hand combat. The story is pretty forgettable as it's just an excuse for zombies.

      Basically unless you really like Yakuza, like myself, it's not a must buy but with that said it's really cheap at JB Hi-fi right now so...
