Yakuza 7 Has Been Announced, Features Turn-Based Combat

Yakuza 7

A new addition to the Yakuza franchise has been announced, releasing on January 16th in Japan and later in 2020 for Western markets.

The newest entry in SEGA’s long running Yakuza franchise will reportedly star Ichiban Kasuga as its main character, and has swapped out the brawling style combat for a turn-based system.

The title of the new game translated from Japanese is “Whereabouts of Light and Darkness”, but it looks like the official English Language title will be Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

You can get a preview of the turn based combat in this video from the live announcement event, thanks to Qvoth at Resetera:
