Trailer PS4

After its announcement in Japan a couple of weeks ago, the seventh entry in the Ryu Ga Gotoku franchise confirmed its arrival in the West in 2020. New screens and videos of Yakuza: Like a Dragon inside.



Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the Next Step in the Acclaimed Yakuza Series, Heads to the West in 2020!

A Landmark Reimagining for the Series' 15th Anniversary - New Characters, Settings, Combat Systems, and More!


IRVINE, Calif., - September 11, 2019 - SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are happy to announce that the latest entry in the RGG / Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Japanese title - Ryu Ga Gotoku 7) is releasing in Japan on January 16, 2020, for the PlayStation®4, with a Western launch planned for 2020. Actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai will be lending their appearances and voices to the game's main cast members, with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game's main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new main protagonist for the first time since the series' inception over a decade ago - Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member looking to prove his self-worth, and follows him and his motley crew of unlikely allies as they attempt to rise from rags to riches in this modern human drama.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is much more than just a new chapter in the Yakuza series. Much like the new English title itself, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a complete reimagining of the franchise, a landmark to coincide with the series' 15th anniversary. With the bulk of the game taking place in the large-scale, painstakingly-realized setting of Ijincho in Yokohama, players will explore an entirely new side of Japan never-before-seen in the series. Not only that, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon's combat system has undergone a major overhaul, combining Yakuza's established brawling action with a turn-based RPG battle system.

I love this series. I have Platinum'ed Y3, 4, 5 and 0. Completed all with doing Platinum runs on others as well (even Dead Souls) so I can't get enough of this series. They always know just how much to change to keep it interesting and how much to keep it same to give you the connection to the world / characters. The stories with combination of wacky and serious is just perfect for me.

For this release, I admire the team for switching combat up completely. I understand the fans complaints on it 100% but that's why I think it's smart to keep "7" out of the title in the West so the experiment can be seen as more of a spin-off.

To end, an honorary Majima like shout of the name of the Dragon of Dojima:

KAZUUMA KIRYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

    Melmoth for games not exporting data, you can still use audio as input on the jetseat, but i haven't tried that yet and don't know how well it works. (1 Day ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth while the jetseat uses telemetry from the games that support exporting it, and has 6-8 zones of vibration/feedback. so you get much more nuansed and adjustable feedback (1 Day ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: I don't have any experience with the buttkicker, but from what i understand it's just using game-audio as input, and is 1 large shaker/motor, so it won't be direction-specific feedback (1 Day ago)
