Today Sega continued its daily quest to flood Yakuza fans with new screenshots and information about the upcoming Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
First of all, we get to see the Sotenbori Fighting Coliseum, located in Osaka.
Here Ichiban will have to face powerful enemies gathered by the organizers. You start from the first floor and you have to fight to the top through 30 floors. You can’t move to the next without defeating strong enemies awaiting on each.
Compared to fighting in the city, you’ll be affected by special rules and you’ll find unique enemy combinations.
You can receive a standard reward once by completing each floor, and additonal rewards by achieving the required conditions.
Since the Coliseum includes strong enemies, it’s a great place to level up, while gathering rewards including powerful equipment and materials.
You’ll also meet Appy-kun, the robot receptionist.
As the story progresses, Ichiban and his friends will have to use a series of underground areas to reach the headquarters of a hostile organization. This is very dangerous and it’s basically a “dungeon.”
After clearing the event inviolving the hostile organization, you can continue using the dungeon as a place to level up efficiently while collecting weapons, armor, and materials.
While attacking the hostile organization, many of the enemies will be affiliated with it. You can also encounter rare and unique opponents like perverts, escaped prisoners, and hospital patients.
In the dungeon you’ll find attache cases and safes. Attache cases have only one item inside but it changes every time you find one.
Safes have several items inside which are also better, but they require a key to be opened. There are silver and gold safes, and gold ones include better items.
Some of the safes actually contain enemies, who will suddenly attack when the container is opened.They’re very strong, so you should be careful
This is basically the Yakuza version of a mimic.
