Yakuza 7 Officially Announced, Changes Combat To Turn-Based

Sega has officially taken the wraps off the next Yakuza game–and it contains a major change for the action series. During a press conference today series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi unveiled the new game as Yakuza 7. It aims to be a “watershed” moment for the Yakuza series, Nagoshi said.

The game, which is set in Yokohama, features Ichiban Kasuga as the main character. Kasuga apparently is a big fan of Square Enix’s Dragon Quest series, and Sega was able to work out a deal to be able to talk about the Dragon Quest franchise in Yakuza 7.

In a big change for the Yakuza series, it appears the combat now plays out in a turn-based system. You can see this in action in the video below. More images and details can be seen in the embedded tweets below which come from people in attendance at the event.
