In the new and upcoming Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the appearance of the enemies within the game will change until they get the appearance of monsters, due to the lore that Sega has provided us.
We have learned that the protagonist of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Ichiban Kasuga, always dreamed of becoming a hero fighting for justice with his friends. In addition, his interest in the Dragon Quest saga made him see enemies as monsters when fighting them, even in life or death situations.
The new installment of the Yakuza saga will be more JRPG than ever. In the fighting, for example, in addition to basic actions such as attacking, defending and fleeing, there are also original elements such as “extreme skill” and “delivery aid.”
In order to execute these elements correctly, we must press a sequence of buttons at the right time to experience a sensation of action even in a turn-based game such as the one in question.
Another detail of interest is the fact that the flow of the battle changes rapidly in real time and there are many types of ranged and cooperative attacks. Its effectiveness varies according to the position of the enemies and the design of the environment, so we must be vigilant at all times to know when to make the blows.
On the other hand, the characters will have access to various possibilities (as in traditional role-playing games) that will offer and enhance various skills and attributes.
Recently, SEGA has presented new gameplay and details of Yakuza: Like a Dragon at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 that was held from September 12 to 15 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. The title is going to include different mini-games.
There will be games like the interesting Dragon Kart racing, the PachiSlot machines and you can even visit the cinema. This is where characters like Saeko Mukouda and Kouichi Adachi first make an appearance in this new adventure that will take place in the Yokohama surroundings.
They define the Dragon Kart as a dangerous racing game where we can race using these modified vehicles. As if it were other karting sagas, we will find boxes of objects with gadgets such as bullets and other elements that guarantee our attack and defense.
Going to the movies will not be something quite pleasant. During certain moments of the movie, the dream will come to us to attack us and leave us asleep. Repeating sleep will be the main task in a mini-game that will force us to press the button at the right time. Yakuza: Like a Dragon movie theaters will have 10 movies.
The PachiSlot are very popular gaming machines in the saga, this time with reliable recreations of Million God: Kamigami no Gaisen and Another God Hades: Ubowareta ZEUS Ver., Or Sammy’s PachiSlot Fist of the Blue Sky: Houyuu and PachiSlot Moujuuou: Ouja No Houkou.
The game will feature, as mentioned above, secondary characters such as Saeko Mukouda, who works in a cabaret club, or Kouichi Adachi, a former police investigator and now a member of the metropolitan agents.
I remind you that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will arrive in 2020.
