Yakuza: Like a Dragon - 15 minutes of English gameplay from IGN Expo
During today's IGN Expo Day 1 streaming event, Sega Senior Localization Producer Scott Strichart joined the presentation to walk through a 15-minute gameplay demo for Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
The footage shows the game's new turn-based gameplay style, while Scott talks about the game's changes from previous entries as well as various components such as the new job system.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon turns the long-running beat-'em-up into a turn-based JRPG. Senior Localization Producer Scott Strichart shows us around the new setting of Yokohama, introduces us to the new protagonist Kasuga Ichiban, shows off the party-based battle system, some fun side activities, and the new wardrobe tied to the job system.
We’ve seen the Yakuza Like a Dragon trailer (a.k.a Yakuza 7 trailer), but Scott Strichart is here showing us more of the new fighting system that Sega developed for this game as well as a ton more Yakuza Like a Dragon gameplay (a.k.a Yakuza 7 gameplay).
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is set to release later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The Xbox Series X version will be a launch title for the platform and support Xbox's Smart Delivery initiative, where those who purchase the Xbox One version can upgrade at no additional cost.
For more information, you can find the cinematic trailer which debuted at Microsoft's Xbox 20/20 event here.
