The official Japanese Yakuza YouTube channel has released a rather entertaining new video, supposedly leaking footage of the next Yakuza game. The off-screen recording shows fresh lead character Ichiban Kasuga entering combat with a bunch of thugs on the streets of Kamurocho, except instead of immediately dishing out the button-mashing pain, Kasuga and his mates find themselves in a turn based battle.

It's clearly an April Fools gag, but it's still pretty funny and well worth a quick watch. That said, it's so well made that we wonder whether this will actually turn out to be some kind of minigame in next Yakuza title. It wouldn't surprise us in the least.
