Yakuza 5 has continued its pursuit towards ultimate epicness by announcing that Namco Bandai’s Taiko Drum Master will appear as a playable arcade cabinet within the open-world adventure.

Arcade mini-games are no stranger to SEGA’s successful series, but this marks the first time that the publisher has teamed up with a fellow developer to incorporate an established brand into the game.

Once you find the arcade cabinet, you’ll be able to select from a handful of songs, including Mappy Ondo, Nijiiro Yumeiro Taikoiro and Shinsekai Yori.

We’re crossing everything that this title makes its way overseas. Everything.
