‘Yakuza 5’ demo hits Japan next week


A demo for Yakuza 5, the fifth entry in Sega’s open-world, action-adventure game, will be hitting Japan next week.

This chunk of content will put you in the shoes of¬†Kazuma Kiryu during some of the early portions of the game, and as you’d guess, you’ll be punching a whole bunch of dudes in the face in this trial. What’s unique about all this hand-to-hand action will be the graphics engine, which will built from the ground up for this experience. The last few Yakuza games have been running on a modified version of the Yakuza 3 engine, but expect things to look prettier this time around.

If you somehow have a Japnese PSN account, you can grab this demo Nov. 27. The final product, which will contain five settings across Japan and five playable main characters, will reach Japan Dec. 6.
