Game news Yakuza: The turn-based is still on the program for the next episode
On November 10, 2020, the yakuza saga surprised everyone with the release of a particular yakuza: Like a Dragon. A work that, unlike the first episodes, swapped its battles in real time for turn-based clashes. Today we learn that this new game mechanic, which we thought was temporary, will shape the future of the series.
It’s official, Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator of the Yakuza series, and Kazuki Hosokaw, its producer, said in the microphone ofIGN that the rest of the Yakuza license will use the various mechanics inaugurated by Like a Dragon. What does that mean ? That the likely Yakuza 8 also features turn-based combat and a strong RPG dimension.
The Yakuza series has been converted into a turn-based role-playing game. On the other hand, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has accumulated resources and expertise over the year to create eye-catching and exciting action games that are easy to enjoy. That’s why we decided to keep our action gameplay live with Lost Judgment. Toshihiro Nagoshi and Kazuki Hosokaw
This new dimension could obviously disappoint more than one. However, The most fireproof will still be able to enjoy the beat’em of all parts of the series by turning to the spin-offs of Judgment that take on everything that made the first yakuza so popular. In addition, a second work called Lost Judgment will land on our favorite platforms on September 24th.
