Way back in April, Gio Corsi of SCEA Third Party Production team visited SEGA‘s offices in Tokyo, Japan to interview two of the developers behind the Yakuza series, General Director Toshihiro Nagoshi and Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama.

Now, Sega has released the second of three interview videos on the upcoming fifth entry in the open-world crime saga, where Gio goes deeper into the details of Yakuza 5 with the two developers. In the second video, Mr. Nagoshi and Mr. Yokoyama discuss more of the themes in the game, the inspiration behind character designs, hostess clubs and more.

Check out the video below:


Yakuza 5 is slated to release later this year exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
