Virtua Fighter 2 playable in Yakuza 5

Feel like a dragon playing classic Sega games in Yakuza 5!

Making an upgrade from the UFO claw machines and minigames of previous series entries, Yakuza 5 will feature classic Sega arcade games, Shenmue-style!

Virtua Fighter 2 and Taiko Drum Master will be playable in the same Club Sega arcades that we're all familiar with from the other Yakuza games. And if you haven't played Yakuza yet, you should get on that! It's a great series.

Air hockey is replacing table tennis, but I'm sure it will be just as humiliating to sexy women who lose their clothes as you beat them at the game. Other minigames will include river fishing, snowball fights, batting cages and chicken races.

Let's just hope we even get Yakuza 5. Word is we won't get the HD re-releases of 1 and 2, and Yakuza: Dead Souls performed below Sega's expectations. You can't judge a series' relevance by the sales of a spin-off, but Sega's hit some hard times recently with layoffs and a focus on digital distribution.
