Select Yakuza 5's New City
Sega wants to know if you want Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka or Fukuoka.
Sega's deeply tanned Toshihiro Nagoshi, who likes tomatoes and sleeps with his cat, said during a live Nico Nico broadcast yesterday that Yakuza 5 will take place in Kamurocho, the fictional city of all the past Yakuza games, and in another location. The current candidates for the other location are Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka.
It turns out that Sega will be allowing fans to share their opinion on which of the four cities they want in the game. The company opened a survey off the Yakuza series portal. Visitors can select from the four cities and share the reason they want to see the city in the game.
The results will be announced at the Yakuza portal. Sega did not say if fan opinion will be considered when deciding on the final location.
