Sega have revealed 14 minutes of gameplay for Yakuza: Like a Dragon during IGN’s Summer of Gaming.
While past Yakuza games have been action focused, this title is a “dynamic” RPG. Ichiban Kasuga (after serving time for a crime he did not commit and abandoned by his yakuza family), is now clawing his way back to the top- along with the usual Yakuza wackiness, side-jobs, and mode.
You can find the 14 minutes of gameplay and developer interview below.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
RISE FROM ROCK BOTTOM
Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.
Confused and alone, he embarks on a mission to discover the truth behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back, becoming an unlikely hero for the city’s outcasts on his journey.
