New Yakuza: Like A Dragon Details from Weekly Famitsu featuring summons, kart racing and more!

Weekly Famitsu’s latest issue in Japan has new game play information on Yakuza: Like A Dragon which covers two new characters, how the Live Command RPG Battle begins, summoning help in battle, and new mini games to try out in the latest installment. With Tokyo Game Show 2019 happening this week, we most likely see live demonstrations of the features in action during SEGA’s livestream starting this Thursday. For insight details on the game play, click the link after the break.

Characters

Saeko Mukouda (voiced by Sumire Uesaka) – Cabaret hostess.
Kouichi Adachi (voiced by Akio Ootsuka) – A former detective. He has received an unreasonable demotion by Horinouchi, the Superintendent General of the Metropolitan Police, for revolting against him. He is working with protagonist Ichiban Kasuga to get closer to Masumi Arakawa, who holds the evidence.

Live Command RPG Battle

When a battle begins, the regular people and those wearing delinquent-like outfits on the field will transform into RPG-like enemy characters with mohawks, or be half-naked, and have weapons.

Summons

By paying money on your smartphone in battle, you can summon help. A large number of characters can be summoned, including Gary Buster Holmes, Gonda Wara, a crayfish, and more. Summons can support you in battle through attack, recovery, and more.

Play Spots

  • Dragon Cart – A racing game set on a course in the streets of Yokohama. Pick up boxes to obtain weapons like a rocket launcher or Gatling gun.
  • Traditional Movie Theater – Ichiban Kasuga always falls asleep in the middle of a movie. This is a button-pressing (rhythm game?) where Kasuga battles the temptation of a sheep man in order to overcome that sleepiness.
  • PachiSlot – PachiSlot games Million God: Kamigami no Gaisen Another God Hades: Ubowareta ZEUS Ver., PachiSlot Fist of the Blue Sky: Houyuu, and PachiSlot Moujuuou: Ouja no Houkou appear. Settings do not reset when you leave the parlor, but rather change with specific timing. Machines located closer to the entrance have higher rates, which reflect the settings of real life parlors. This is the only PachiSlot simulator running on PlayStation 4.

    I’m fine with this as long as all this WACKY STUFF XD doesn’t creep into the core of the game.
    Also that pachinko minigame has like, a 1% chance of being localized.

      They’re not omiting content from the Japanese versions anymore, so I think it will be there. Maybe they’ll just remove trophies related to it if there are any (which would be a good thing to do).
