Today Sega released a new gallery of screenshots of the upcoming JRPG Ryu ga Gotoku 7, which will be released in the west as Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
First of all, we get to see a rather popular activity among middle-aged dudes in Japan, Pachislot. The Yakuza games have always been the perfect ojisan simulator, and this one appears to be no exception.
The game will include four real-life pachislot machines, including one theme after Fist of the North Star. On top of that, thanks to a collaboration with three different pachinko parlor chains, their shops will appear as well.
Players will be able to enjoy the quasi-gambling machines with their favorite settings, and Sega is aiming to realize a “definitive pachislot simulator”
We also get to see the Kart minigame that mix racing and guns to defeat your rivals. You can win both with speed or force, or a mix or the two.
The Masterpiece theater is also a new play spot that can be found in an old movie theater in Isezaki Ijincho.
Our hero Ichiban Kasuga goes there to watch old movies, but suspicious “Sleepers” with sheep masks will try to induce him to fall asleep. He can resist their influence by pressing the right buns.
If you’re unsuccessful he’ll fall asleep and gain nothing. If you’re successful, finishing the movies will contribute to his growth.
You can enjoy all the screenshots below.
If you’d like to see more about the game, you can check out the original reveal, the first trailer with English subtitles, more trailers and gameplay, even more clips, another batch of videos, and the latest one.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch in Japan on January 16, 2020, exclusively for PS4. It’ll also come west later next year.
