Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the next installment in a series of action games developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. Compared to the previous installments, the game has been modified in many ways. The action takes place in different city and the arcade fights were replaced by turn-based battles.
The main protagonist of Yakuza: Like a Dragon is not Kazuma Kiryu. Instead, the players will take on the role of a man named Ichiban Kasuga. The game takes place in 2019, when the protagonist leaves prison, where he spent 18 years for the crimes committed by his boss. When he is released, he returns to his home town, where he is betrayed by his former companions. In the end, Kasuga ends up in the Isezaki Ijincho district of Yokohama.
The main setting of Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the Isezaki Ijincho district in Yokohama, which the players can explore. It is three times bigger than Tokyo's Kamurocho in the previous installments of the series.
The battles take place in turn-based mode, called Live Command RPG Battle. During the clashes, players take control of the heroes' team. Each of them has their own unique skills. All skirmishes are very dynamic. As they progress, the battlefield changes, making combat easier or more difficult.
The order, in which a turn is played depends on the statistics of all characters. In addition, heroes can perform actions out of order.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon features visuals similar to the previous installments of the series. The biggest changes include a new settig, taking the players into a completely new environment.
