Play Taiko Drum Master in Yakuza 5


Weird! You know how you can visit arcades in the Yakuza games to play Sega titles? This week's Famitsu announces a collaboration between Sega and Namco Bandai that puts super-Japanese rhythm game Taiko Drum Master in Yakuza 5 as a playable arcade game.

Andriasang says that you'll be able to select from a handful of songs in the next numbered Yakuza title. It would be great if they somehow worked some classic Sega songs as Taiko selections to be played in the game. Meta!

Hopefully this feature won't be lost in localization.
