Yakuza 5 follows on from the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu and 4 other protagonists:

Kazuma Kiryu, who was once known as the Dragon of Dojima, had been living a quiet life as a taxi driver in Hakata after severing his ties with the criminal underworld.
However, in the face of what will be a bloody war between the Omi Alliance and the Tojo Clan, Kazuma is forced to accept his fate and return to a life filled with crime and violence.
The saga plays out across Tokyo, Osaka, Hakata, Nagoya and Sapporo, and features “Another Drama” – a series of sub-plots that focus on each protagonist.
The Yakuza 5 remaster runs the game at 1080p and 60fps, and features the exact same content that was in the original game on PS3.
The battle system and customization system have been enhanced from Yakuza 4, and various mini-games are now available in the well-known locales from the series.
