A new trailer for Yakuza 7, which is officially called Yakuza: Like a Dragon, premiered today at Tokyo Game Show. The trailer, which is in Japanese with English subtitles available, shows off more of the story and setting.
“One journey ends, a new one begins. Yakuza: Like a Dragon A brand new story in a new city, featuring new characters, along with a completely revamped combat system,” reads a line from its official announcement. “All on top of everything you already love about Yakuza. Coming to the West in 2020!”
Yakuza: Like a Dragon stars Ichiban Kasuga, after Yakuza 6: The Song of Life wrapped up the story of the previous protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Sega is adopting a turn-based battle system as homage to Dragon Quest. To match thematically, the new hero is canonically a huge DQ fan. The game is due in January in Japan, and sometime in 2020 in the West.
In other news, it was recently confirmed that Yakuza 7’s minigames will include go karts, slot machines, and boring movies, among other things.
