Yakuza 5's hostess clubs, character designs, and more highlighted in dev interview

Sega has released a new developer diary where we learn about Yakuza 5's many hostess clubs, character designs, and more.


Sega has released a new video for its upcoming open-world RPG, Yakuza 5, in which it chats with general director Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama.

In the second of three interview videos, Nagoshi-san and Yokoyama-san discuss more of the themes we can expect in Yakuza 5, the inspiration behind the character designs, hostess clubs, and more. The two even spend some time answering fan questions from Twitter that includes how the series actually portrays Japanese culture, their reaction to its dedicated international fanbase, and more.

Sega released the first Yakuza 5 developer interview back in late June where we learned the game was being aimed squarely at adult Japanese players and more. You can check out that interview here.
