Remember earlier this year on April Fool’s Day when Sega dropped that teaser for the next Yakuza game that showed a turn-based combat system similar to your favorite JRPG?
THAT WASN’T A JOKE!! Yakuza 7’s combat system is a mix of that insane Yakuza battles combined with JRPG gameplay!! I ain’t even kidding.
Here’s the April Fool post from earlier this year.
Here’s the direct feed of said gameplay footage!
Now that Kiryus Yakuza 7 has you playing as Ichiban Kasuga who after serving 18 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, is finally free. Soon after he has hie freedom, he’s betrayed, shot, and makes it to Yokohama, the main setting for Y7. I smell a serving of revenge!!
Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon tries something completely different for the series on January 16th, 2020 in Japan and at some point next year in the West.
