Play this game so you can play some other games.

Among the distractions you'll find in the world of Sega's Yakuza 6 are a collection of arcade games--including a fairly recent one in Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.

The slate of games available in Yakuza 6's "play spots" was shared by Japanese publication Famitsu (as translated by Gematsu). Visiting one will allow you to play Showdown--the most recent Virtua Fighter game--complete with a two-player mode. Puyo Puyo is also available with a two-player mode, and you can also find Super Hang-On, OutRun, Space Harrier, and Fantasy Zone.

It's unclear exactly which version of Final Showdown this is, as an updated edition (known as Version B) was released in arcades last year. We also don't know if this is the complete game or a more trimmed-down version. Whatever the case, you'll be able to enjoy at least part of what was a solid fighting game when it was first released in 2012.

In addition to this, play spots are home to more traditional fare like karaoke, mahjong, and darts.

Other side activities mentioned in the report is something called Live Chat, where you interact with a woman on a webcam through what sounds like a quick-time event.

Yakuza 6 launches for PS4 on December 8. The next Yakuza game to launch in the West is Yakuza 0, which arrives in January. It'll likely be followed by both Yakuza 6 and a remake of the original game.
