The announcement of Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Western title of Yakuza 7 , so far known as Shin Yakuza) has left everyone speechless with the revolutions of the combat system. The game will abandon the brawler gameplay action that has evolved over the years, to instead switch to a typical JRPG-style turn-based combat system in Dragon Quest. And Dragon Quest was one of the inspirations for this new episode, which in addition to revolutionizing the combat system introduces many other new features: from the protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, to the setting, since Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be set in Yokohama and no longer in Kamurocho. There is talk of a map three times bigger than the dear old Kamurocho, which we imagine will be full of subplots and mini-games.
Vincenzo and Francesco talk about their impressions and expectations of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, how they welcomed the news and how the future holds for the SEGA series. Yakuza: Like a Dragon is coming to PlayStation 4 in January in Japan, and during 2020 in Europe.
