Yakuza 7 Mixes Turn-Based Combat With Drama


Today during a press conference in Tokyo, SEGA announced Yakuza 7, officially titled Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Most shocking is the massive change being made to the Japanese crime drama/beat-em-up: combat is now turn-based.

Keen followers of Yakuza related news will remember that back in April, Yakuza 7 was teased with a small gameplay trailer showing off RPG-like combat. At the time it was gathered that this was a look at the first post-Kiryu Yakuza title, but that the footage shown off was merely a whacky mini-game or sequence the series is known for. Well, it turns out that developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio was giving us our first look at Yakuza 7’s core gameplay, a bold change to the beloved series that’s bound to be divisive.
