in a way, Judgement scratched a jrpg nostalgia itch for me, and I guess that will strongly amplify with Y7

Same here. My reaction was something like "Yes! More Yakuza- oh wait, it's turn based. Never mind."

I guess I can appreciate them trying something different though. A lot of people will enjoy it.

Unfortunately that's the primary reason i don't think i'll be touching this game anytime soon. It should be a real time action game just like the rest. That's what made them feel super bad ass and involving. Turn based combat is a relic for select JRPGs to use. Even modern Square JRPGs like FF15 turned to a much more real time system.

Persona 5 & Dragon Quest XI are both great JRPGs that used turn based combat. I’m looking forward to this, glad they’re trying something different. They also said they’ll change it back for the next game if too many people didn’t like it. I honestly hope it’s successful.

I do wish for more turn based combat in console games, but just can’t see Yakuza series with it.

Perfectly put

I actually LOVED Persona 5 and it was a JRPG which made it feel like turn based combat was appropriate and even the new action based version of it didn't bother me. The issue mostly i have ia that Yakuza games were pretty damn good with what they already have. Give us a great story, world with loads of stuff to do and solid action mechanics, we're good.

It can be a slog fighting random gangs in the Yakuza series. I wouldn't want turn based combat for those encounters.

confirmed to come to PS5 "at a later date" with an upgrade path planned for PS4, yet it's optimized for Series X at launch?

Played a while last night. Nice upgrade on graphics (the sunlight that greets you while exiting the underground was nice). I'm still wary of the turn based combat. New character is a bit like Yakuza 0 Majima.

There's a 9.6 GB Pachislot Machines 4 Pack Free Content. Sadly, there's are two $14 upgrades (Stat Boost & Crafting Set). All other DLC appears to have come with the Legendary Edition (costumes, karaoke etc).

Just played a little bit & I like it. The combat is better then I’d thought it would be & honestly wouldn’t mind if all Yakuza games were this way goin forward.

No Kazuma Kiryu For Fighting Game Appearances Because Of Female Characters Being In Fighting Games



Quote:
In an interview with Red Bull France, the Yakuza game series director Toshihiro Nagoshi expressed personal reservations about including protagonist Kazuma Kiryu as a guest character in fighting games. According to an English translation of the article written by the interviewer, Nagoshi said: "We do get this request a lot. Of course there are exceptions, but fighting games generally have female characters, and personally I don't really want to see Kiryu beating up women."

Nagoshi has previously commented on the masculine ideals embodied by the Yakuza characters, describing Kiryu as "the kind of man that every boy wants to be." He has also said that he is careful to depict Kiryu as the kind of character who will never start a fight by himself, instead only accepting fights that come to him. "I think basing your game in reality and forcing responsibility brings your experience closer to the real world," he said. "If anyone was to ever kill someone because of a game I made, I'd stop making games on the spot. I'd be devastated."

Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Ryū ga Gotoku 7: Hikari to Yami no Yukue), the most recent installment of the Yakuza franchise, shipped in the West for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows 10 and PC via Steam on November 10. The game will debut for the PlayStation 5 on March 2, 2021. People who purchase the PS4 version will be able to receive the PS5 version at no additional cost.

The game takes place in Isezaki Ijincho in Yokohama. The story follows the new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga, who belongs to the Arakawa Family, the third generation family of the Tojo Clan. Previous games focused on Kazuma Kiryu, a tough yet honorable yakuza member.

Sega released the game for PS4 in Japan as Ryū ga Gotoku 7: Hikari to Yami no Yukue (Yakuza 7: The Direction of Light and Dark) on January 16. "Like a Dragon" in the Western title Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the translation of the series' Japanese title Ryū ga Gotoku.
