Yakuza 5 TGS 2012 video demo - Punching and kicking our way through Japan

Tokyo Game Show is different from most other industry trade events due to it often giving us a chance to play games we might never see outside of Japan. Take the next entry in the Yakuza series. A monstrous hit in the island nation, the dedicated US/UK fans of the franchise normally have to wait months--if not years--to find out if another entry will be localized. No matter how long it takes to get answers from Sega about Yakuza 5's possible overseas launch, watch as we play the PS3 game planned for December launch in Japan. And if you're wary of the game being too "Japanese," we promise you'll see some awesomely violent wrestling moves that translate into any language.
