- Yakuza 5: The Omi Alliance is on the verge of a war of succession, and to prevent it, the sixth president of the Tojo clan, Daigo Dojima, seeks to unify the yakuza of Japan. Echoes of this underground struggle for power reach five playable characters: Kazuma Kiryu, who poses low in Fukuoka as a taxi driver, Taiga Saejima, who returns to prison to finish what he started, Shun Akiyama, who lends money to a client who is more than meets the eye, Haruka Sawamura, who dreams of becoming an idol, and Tatsuo Shinada, a disgraced baseball star who finds himself over his head. Five characters, five cities and five dreams converge in an explosive conclusion.
