During Day 1 of IGN’s Summer of Gaming event, Yakuza: Like A Dragon (Yakuza 7) got 14 minutes of new gameplay and a developer interview with Scott Strichart (Senior Localization Producer, Sega).
Here’s an overview of Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s appearance during IGN’s Summer of Gaming:
Yakuza: Like a Dragon turns the long-running beat-’em-up into a turn-based JRPG. Senior Localization Producer Scott Strichart shows us around the new setting of Yokohama, introduces us to the new protagonist Kasuga Ichiban, shows off the party-based battle system, some fun side activities, and the new wardrobe tied to the job system.
We’ve seen the Yakuza Like a Dragon trailer (a.k.a Yakuza 7 trailer), but Scott Strichart is here showing us more of the new fighting system that Sega developed for this game as well as a ton more Yakuza Like a Dragon gameplay (a.k.a Yakuza 7 gameplay).
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is set to release sometime 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (via Steam) but is already out in Japan for PlayStation 4.
