The PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza 5 will launch on June 20 in Japan for 3,990 yen, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.
Yakuza 5 first launched for PlayStation 3 in December 2012 in Japan, followed by the rest of the world in December 2015.
The legendary dragon returns to the criminal underworld of Yakuza. Kazuma Kiryu, once known as the Dragon of Dojima, was living a quiet life as a taxi driver in Hakata after severing all his ties with the underworld. However, at the dawn of the bloody turf war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance, Kazuma is forced to accept his inescapable fate and returns to a life filled with crime and violence to protect his loved ones.
Yakuza 5 continues the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu and four other protagonists—Haruka Sawamura, Taiga Saejima, Tatsuo Shinada, and Shun Akiyama.
