Today, SEGA has announced that Yakuza 7 will hit PS4 as well as other systems on November 13th. The PlayStation 5 version will come out at a later date. This marks the series 7th mainline entry (not counting spin-offs like Judgment) and is a soft reboot of the series. The game play has dropped its beat ’em up roots for a turn based RPG system.
Cross save features remain unknown since Sony has not announced how it will handle your current generation saves.
In The West, this also marks the return of an English dub that stars Kaiji Tang who voices the lead, Ichiban, Greg Chun who voiced Yagami in Yakuza spin-off, Judgment and George Takei who needs no introduction. You play as the lead Ichiban, who like Kiryu, was a part of the Tojo clan and took the fall for a murder he did not commit.
This comes just in time for the next generation launch and should have a significant amount of side stories/activities as usual.
