Taiko Drum Master muscles into Yakuza 5

Play Taiko Drum Master in Yakuza 5
Yakuza games are packed with odd minigames that have you hitting baseballs, playing darts, romancing hostesses, and even fishing for zombies. Yakuza 5 adds a new but familiar distraction, according to a leaked Famitsu article reported on by Andriasang: a Taiko Drum Master minigame.

Namco Bandai's arcade game will appear in-game as an arcade machine, with a variety of songs. This is kind of fun news, but also a potential roadblock for localization, as Sega and Namco Bandai would have to coordinate rights for a western release.
