New screenshots in for the upcoming Yakuza 5 feature the new "Zetsugi" combat system, which includes "special kills" for each of the main characters.
As you can see, the fellow in red is quite adept with his legs and knees, and uses both regularly to smash people in the face. The guy in the winter coat, meanwhile, seems to go more the primal "big like bear" intimidation route. Finally, the man in the grey jacket appears quite fond of pummeling people in the chest with both his legs and fists. So, there's that, then.
The screens show a lot of promise in a key area -- now we just need a trailer to get a proper idea of how it all goes down.
Yakuza 5 launches December in Japan. As for North America, no publisher has been confirmed as of yet.
