Yakuza: Like a Dragon Announcement Trailer

SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are happy to announce that the latest entry in the RGG / Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Japanese title – Ryu Ga Gotoku 7) is releasing in Japan on January 16, 2020, for the PlayStation®4, with a Western launch planned for 2020. Actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai will be lending their appearances and voices to the game’s main cast members, with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game’s main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new main protagonist for the first time since the series’ inception over a decade ago — Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member looking to prove his self-worth, and follows him and his motley crew of unlikely allies as they attempt to rise from rags to riches in this modern human drama.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is much more than just a new chapter in the Yakuza series. Much like the new English title itself, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a complete reimagining of the franchise, a landmark to coincide with the series’ 15th anniversary. With the bulk of the game taking place in the large-scale, painstakingly-realized setting of Ijincho in Yokohama, players will explore an entirely new side of Japan never-before-seen in the series. Not only that, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s combat system has undergone a major overhaul, combining Yakuza’s established brawling action with a turn-based RPG battle system.

    I have to buy this only because of how wrong they did Ichi. And I never played a Yukuza game.

    So they are keeping the Japanese name of the series for the overseas release of Yakuza 7??? INTERESTING!
    I guess that’s a unique way to differ this game from the other 6 Yakuza games.

    I’m extremely skeptical of the game. Story looks fantastic as usual, but the turnbased combat is a big yeesh for me. Not a fan unless it gives you a fair amount of choices like Bravely/Octopath. Really hope the combat can still make the bosses exciting.

    Trailer wasn’t great but I am excited for the game all the same. Story and characters already look pretty interesting so all the game has to do is live up to its predecessors and we gonna have another masterpiece boys.

    Never played a Yakuza game in my life, although I’ve played my fair share of games. The fans’ praise about the series is what caught my attention.
