Yakuza 7 announced - Release in 2020

63 posts in this topic

This looks amazing - I'll withhold judgment till I have it in my hands but I've quite enjoyed what I've seen so far. Maybe they were getting burnt out from making action games - fair enough. If this works out well then I can see them sticking to this format and keeping the action stuff to side games like Judgment. It looks a lot of fun, and I like the idea of being able to level a party of characters in a bigger, new environment, but with all the other Yakuza shit still there.

 

I understand perfectly well why people are cynical about this, but they seem to be putting in genuine effort and passion into making something "new" here, and after 9 (!!!) action games in Kamurocho can you really blame them for wanting to take the series in another direction?

Since there is no new date yet for Western (English) 2020 release.  Likely in the range of Summer  Which doesn't concern me since I'd already platinum the game as well max all the characters levels & job levels.

That mini-game is not hard to understand the basic of getting through the top & earn the top money 3 million ¥!  It's the 2nd highest way to earn money! 

 

Plus this music above ^ really gets your blood pumping as you get ready for the highly intense battle!  The highest money earning btw is the Millennium Tower which is 30 million ¥ although leveling up characters is highly recommended since the enemies are levels 50-80! 

 

Of course people already gave mixed opinions with the JRPG aspect which I'd believe it was the right time for a change of gameplay.  Plus you get to control each characters to do their attack moves.

 

They seem to do fine so far in sales in Japan.

Though one highly negative choice they making at the moment for 龍が如く 7 which not sure it will impact for Yakuza: Like a Dragon (ENG) is the Paid DLC for >> NG+ & EX-Hard difficulty.  Also of course since this game will be including an English dub which I'd never cared for since I always prefer Japanese.

 

"Toshihiro Nagoshi gave us a rough idea of what will happen to the Yakuza series in the future. He answered that making the jump to RPG was a big challenge for Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, and how there are now multiple roads available.

Toshihiro Nagoshi:  Making Ryu Ga Gotoku 7 into an RPG was a big challenge. For the next game, we can keep going with RPG and make something that surpasses it. We can also go back to action. We could also make a hybrid system mixing action and the new RPG system. All of these are possible scenarios."

As for DLC outfits for the Ichiban & the gang are not bad!

People should wait at least for a demo or watch some gameplay videos before making a proper decision.

Holy shit they released an English trailer and it's on the Xbox channel as well? Western release date must be coming soon :)

 

Also I heard in yakuza 7 they went batshit crazy now that they're doing a turn based rpg combat style instead of an old school brawler so yea.. orbital laser :lol:..

 

I'm skeptical but I'm still going to try it. I've already come this far in the series (5 and 6 are left in the backlog).

It feels strange to see Xbox heavily promote the series like they have been doing recently. The series has been doing disappointing numbers in Japan as of late and you can tell RGG Studio/Sega are shifting their focus to the western market with that day one release across PS, Xbox, and PC. I would be very surprised if Yakuza 8 sticks with the turn-based combat considering that was done to try and win back the Japanese audience (it didn't work). I just don't see that kind of game being popular with Xbox players.

 

Also, I still hate the western title. Now that I think of it, they probably dropped the number from Yakuza 7 to try and make the game sound more appealing to Xbox players who don't have most of the mainline entries on their platform.

I know about that as I was talking about the English version of the demo whenever it comes out.
