"Yakuza 5" Adds Hatsune Miku to Its Rogues Gallery of Gangsters

Sega adds snow sculptures, Miku toys, and a special costume

Who's one of the last characters you'd expect to make an appearance in Yakuza 5? If you said Hatsune Miku, you'd actually be wrong, because Sega announced a Miku/Yakuza 5 crossover during a NicoNico broadcast! 


What does that entail exactly? Well, Hatsune Miku will be rearing her head in the next Yakuza game—due out for PlayStation 3 in Japan on December 6—in a variety of ways. The virtual idol's snow sculpture will be in the game, and players can win Miku toys from UFO catchers.



There's even a special costume for the playable Haruka Sawamura, who aims to be an idol and can get into rhythm game dance battles on the street.
