Something special about love between a man and a crawfish.
After a very long wait, next month will see the west finally get the seventh installment in the mainline Yakuza series, Like a Dragon. The game takes the more action beat’em up focus from the previous six titles and morphs into something resembling a Japanese RPG, and boy, does it manage to capture that feel better than you’d expect.
On the latest Xbox podcast, we got to see some new English footage of the game, specifically a mission featuring the main protagonist and his fondness for a crawfish named Nancy. I mean, if that wasn’t weird enough, it accumulates in getting an old fashion style RPG-style summon and, well, I won’t ruin it. If you didn’t know the Yakuza series had a goofy side, I imagine you will after this.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch on November 10th for PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC. A PlayStation 5 version was also announced but won’t launch until March 2nd 2021.
