|An Angry Yakuza Lieutenant, a Manipulative Cop, and a Sadistic Prison Inmate Are Just Some of the People You'll Meet in Yakuza 5|
When someone has ties to the Yakuza, their life is probably not boring. In fact, it's probably filled with, violence, money, and legally ambiguous activities. While I don't personally know anyone who is connected to the yakuza to confirm this, I do know that the protagonists in Yakuza 5 get caught up with numerous gangsters, desperate civilians, and unsavory characters that make up the Japanese underworld.
Here's a look at some of the "upstanding" people you'll be interacting with:
This imposing gentleman is Masaru Watase, an ambitious lieutenant for the Omi Alliance who wants to be the next chairman . You can tell by his permanent scowl that he is not someone you want to mess with. Watase wants the Tokyo-based yakuza - the Tojo Clan - to be at their strongest, because he would love nothing more than to have a good ol' fashioned gang war.
The stoic Osaka Detective is a mysterious figure that shows up in most of the protagonists' storylines. He often drops important clues and "helps" steer the main characters towards a specific goal. Are these manipulations based on a personal vendetta or is there a larger picture that our protagonists can't see?
