Did you like Yakuza: Like a Dragon JRPG series? If so, then this is good news, because it looks like the Yakuza will be sticking to turn-based RPG combat for the foreseeable future.
Before creating the sequel to “Lost Judgment,” series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Kazuki Hosokawa stated on IGN that after the success of Like a Dragon, the main series would be ditching its brawler roots.
“The Yakuza series has been transformed into a turn-based RPG. On the other hand, over the year, Ryu ga Gotoku Studio has accumulated resources and know-how of making flashy and exhilarating action games that are effortless to enjoy. We decided that we should let our signature action gameplay live on through Lost Judgement.”
Therefore, Yakuza’s third-person praise battle will continue in the trial. At the same time, Yakuza will retain the absurdity of the JRPG style as a dragon. As far as I know, it is absurd to call a phone number to summon a big lobster or a limousine full of mobsters.
Naturally, the news has spread to people like the Yakuza. Some people believe that if the series continues with the new leader Ichiban, it makes sense to continue the party-focussed combat, while others believe that slowing down makes exploring the city absolutely cumbersome.
The real problem is that “Judgement” and its sequel are not currently available on PC, preventing us from the classic Yakuza fight.
