According to the video, Asakura states that along with a few of the returning characters from Yakuza: Like a Dragon, he himself will even make a look within the title. What capability his function will likely be within the title was not talked about, but it surely’s not the primary time that Yakuza has taken actual life Japanese celebrities/athletes and thrown them into the combo. The essential protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, will even be coming again, albeit with a little bit of a makeover. He now has his hair tied again in a tie versus this iconic wild hair from the earlier entry.
Other than the brand new coiffure, the pictures don’t actually reveal something main by way of story or gameplay. Studio Director Masayoshi Yokoyama did state some time again that the sport would happen a number of years after Yakuza: Like a Dragon, so it is sensible if a few of the characters have modified a bit. Yokoyama additionally talked about that Yakuza 8 will retain the JRPG turn-based combat that was launched in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. This doesn’t come as a serious shock as Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s fight was most welcome by the fanbase, regardless of being a serious departure from the beat-em-up fashion the sequence was used to for a number of years. Hopefully Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio can have some extra info for us within the foreseeable future, however for now, this behind the scenes video give us some good perception to how the studio produces their titles.
