In a society where respect and honour holds great importance, there is an even higher regard for these traits within the one organisation that is most feared by all: the Yakuza. Kiryu Kazuma a former rising star in the Yakuza who is rebuilding his life after serving a 10-year prison term for murder suddenly finds himself caught in a spiraling underworld plot involving a mysterious girl known as Haruka and 10 Billion missing Yen. Kazuma must use his fists and his wits to stay alive as he unravels the complex web of truth and lies that surrounds the notorious Yakuza.

Yakuza delivers a perfect balance of action and adventure with its stylish fighting mechanics and immersive storyline. Created specifically for Yakuza, the game's combat engine allow players to string together attack combinations to take out multiple enemies simultaneously in street brawls; grab and smash enemies against walls and tables; and pick up objects to use as weapons to crush opponents. Players can increase strength, stamina, and skills through combat; and experience the adrenaline of pure fighting power by maximizing the Heat Gauge to deliver skull-shattering blows.

Freely explore Tokyo's hidden urban nightlife from sprawling neon-lit streets and nightclubs to actual shops licensed specifically to deliver the authenticity of this enticing metropolis. Players can strategically increase Kazuma's skills and attributes by accumulating weapons and items, engaging in numerous side missions, interrogating and bribing informants and even gambling. Yakuza is an all-encompassing, immersive chronicle that captures the full scope of the Yakuza by authentically recreating Tokyo's underground nightlife, while unveiling the mystery surrounding the Yakuza's traditional honor, respect, and loyalty system.
