    Official Yakuza Series Thread

    What is Yakuza?

    The Yakuza games are action adventure beat em up games with heavy role playing elements. The majority of your time in Yakuza will consist beating c***s up, talking to and dating hostesses at the hostess clubs, playing the many mini games including karaoke, table tennis, golf, f***ing pachinko, and helping townsfolk out with their very weird problems. Outside of that, you will be watching long, melodramatic cutscenes about Yakuza politics.

    What order should I play the Yakuza games in?

    Start in numerical order, beginning with Yakuza 0 on to Kiwami 1 and so forth.




    Yakuza 7 Trailer

    Out on January 16, 2020 in Japan, and in 2020 in the Americas and Europe on PS4.

    • Yakuza: Like a Dragon is an upcoming action role-playing game developed and published by Sega for the PlayStation 4. It is the eighth main release in the Yakuza series, and is set to be released in Japan on the 16th of January 2020 and worldwide later that year. Featuring a new protagonist and gameplay, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is considered to be a soft reboot of the series.
    • Another departure from previous Yakuza games is the battle system. Instead of the real-time beat 'em up mechanics of previous games, Yakuza: Like a Dragon features turn-based RPG type combat, with a four-person battle team. Sega have said that they wanted to try a different style of gameplay, but that if it is badly received, they will return to real-time combat for future games

    From the gameplay they've shown so far, it looks there's gonna be some heavy Persona influence on Like a Dragon.

    Idk about persona specifically but I think Nagoshi is a real big dragon quest fan which made him wanna do turn based

    You can now deepen your bond with party members by hanging out with them, gain life experience and build up characteristics like kindness and intelligence, and the UI is a lot more dynamic and stylised than in previous entries. All of that screams Persona to me.

  • Hmm I hope that Yakuza 7 won't s*** :/

    I'm kidding man.

    Idk, maybe because Sony always supported the Yakuza games. Probably would do well on Switch tbh if money gets funny it'll happen.

    You do need to get a real system though
