A famous chef in Japan, Tatsuya Kawagoe, will be making an appearance in Yakuza 5 as a character named Chef Tatsuya. The real Tatsuya Kawagoe is the CEO for a well known company and restaurant he named after himself. In Yakuza 5, Chef Tatsuya is traveling the world looking for unique menus to use on a fictional television program he appears on.
In the video above you can get a look at how the Yakuza team scans Tatsuya’s face and puts him into the game. It’s pretty interesting to see. There’s also a wee bit of Yakuza 5 footage in there.
