Japanese publication Famitsu has leaked some interesting information about the next installment in the Yakuza series, Yakuza 5.
Yakuza 5's story will take place directly after Yakuza 4 and will, of course, follow the series' poster boy, Kazuma Kiryu. Some of the gameplay will be upgraded this time around with seamless transitions between adventure mode and battles, shortened loading times, and improved facial features of all the characters amongst other things. There will be many locations to visit including Osaka, Fukuoka, Tokyo, and Nagoya.
Yakuza 5 will more than likely be a PlayStation 3 exclusive like the previous titles but no release date has been specified as of yet.
