The wild, wacky world of Sega’s Yakuza series is no stranger to product placement and collaboration. The Japanese gangster games proudly promote real-world beverages, convenience stores, magazines, and booze. And while in-game Club Sega arcades have featured games like Virtua Fighter 4 as set dressing, the upcoming Yakuza 5 will take it one step further, boasting a playable arcade version of Namco Bandai’s rhythm game Taiko Drum Master into the PlayStation 3 title.
