The game, that is titled Ryu Ga Gotoku 7: Whereabouts of Light and Darkness in Japan, will feature a brand new protagonist named Ichiban Kasuga. 

He has a troubled past and ended up in jail 18 years before the beginning of the story.

The cutscenes showcased today happen before his conviction when he was a young yakuza of the Arakawa family. 

The VHS tapes are certainly a dead giveaway of the fact that we’re about two decades in the past, before the events of the first Yakuza game.

You can check them all out below.

We also get to see the level progression of two enemy types, homeless men and guardsmen. Yes, there’s Robocop in the game, kinda.

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 from two days ago, and even more from yesterday.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch in Japan on January 16, 2020, exclusively for PS4. It’ll also come west later next year.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
