What was once a seemingly harmless April Fool’s joke (we’ll get to this later) is now a reality. Yakuza 7, the first Yakuza game post-Kiryu, is real and has finally been revealed. Check out the trailer below:
This time around, Yakuza 7 takes place in Yokohama and features a new protagonist named Ichiban Kasuga. That’s not the only thing that’s new, as the once action based combat system has now been replaced with some sort of turn based RPG battle system! We don’t quite know how to feel about this but for what it’s worth, the Yakuza series has never failed us and we’re hoping this turns out to be the same.
Oh, and about that April’s Fools joke I was talking about? Check out this video from way back…
The tables have turned, we are the fools!
Yakuza 7 is looking at a January 2020 release date in the east and a TBD release date in the west.
