Each legend packs a unique punch in the upcoming RPG.
Ryu ga Gotoku Studio’s Yakuza: Like A Dragon is out later this month in Japan and Sega has been dropping as much information on it as possible. Its latest release discusses the former Legends of the Yakuza, namely Kazuma Kiryu, Goro Majima and Taiga Saejima. Each character played a pivotal role in previous games, especially Kiryu who’s served as the protagonist for many.
It seems that each legend will have their own unique and difficult battles. Majima, for instance, has quick strikes and can buff himself with purple lightning to inflict paralysis on Kasuga’s party. Saejima is a powerhouse whose punches and kicks are absurdly strong. Majima and Saejima even have tandem attacks when together, like an unavoidable assault that inflicts lots of damage.
However, Kiryu’s battle is perhaps the most detailed. He packs four different styles – Brawler, Rush, Breaker and Dragon of Dojima – each with their own unique moves. You’ll have to deal with powerful abilities, weapon attacks, counter-attacks and much more to defeat him.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon is out on January 16th 2020 for PS4 in Japan. It will release worldwide later this year.
