English title: Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Not much is known as of now. What we do know is that the game will be set after Ryuu ga Gotoku 6 with a brand new protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga. As I understand it, he first appeared in Ryuu ga Gotoku Online, a F2P mobile game that game out in Japan in 2018.

Archonus and I had a chat about the game in the last stream.

ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: The Dragon Quest references are killing me lmao!
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Even the music is like dragon quest!
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Now they are beating on a hobo lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: One of the party members is a hobo lol
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: omg level 9 degenerate
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Japanese social justice
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: LMAO! This dude is Professor Oak, collecting data on Sujimons?
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Bro, I NEED this game...
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: JRPG with contemporary setting
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: A rarity
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Interesting direction for the Yakuza series
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I disagree
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: A massive step back in every sense
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: The Ryuu ga Gotoku series was meant as a spiritual successor to Shenmue
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: And the whole point of Shenmue was a type of real-time free-roaming that felt like a movie
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: And now they are going back to JRPG shit?
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: It looks better than the average JRPG, but it's not the way forward for anything
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Well, I meant it's interesting that they decided to make a turn-based game for an action series, but yeah
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: As much as I'm loving the Dragon Quest vibes I'd agree, it's definitely not an evolution
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: This is a mutation lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Jesus, this Pokemon gag is going extra hard
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: The references go over my head because I've never even tried these games
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Yup. As much as I love Dragon Quest I understand it's a pretty niche thing, especially for westerners. It's practically a household name in Japan
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Pokemon too
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Yeah
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Them Japaneses love their JRPGS
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I know and have played Japanese games that even Japanese people don't know
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: It's just that I was never attracted to JRPGs and Pokemon
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I know all of them by name and that's it
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I have played maybe a couple hours of 5-10 of them
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I'll say this looks more interesting than any of them
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: It's funny as hell, that's for sure
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: At least the story and dialogue are not inbred puerile dreck
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: It's extremely self-aware
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Its world is very interesting too
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: JRPG settings are bleh
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Those are real girl pics lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Some of them are pretty good. Like Shin Megami Tensei
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Yes that looks good
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Hell yeah. Gimme that JAV lmao
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: I still suspect the story and dialogue will be inbred puerile dreck
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I've played SMT 1, 2 and Nocturne. I thought they were pretty damn good. You're basically recruiting religious and mythological figures from worldwide cultures in order to kill God lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: It was Pokemon before Pokemon, with demons, fairies and gods
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Dragon Quest Monsters also came out before Pokemon
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: He's right, you know
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Take THAT, Kume! You hypocrite fuck!
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Wow, this game is actually making a lot of poignant commentary on Japanese culture
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I dare say it's quite...philosophical...
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Hell yeah, look at all them cuties
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: And this is illegal?! A travesty!!!
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: The city is like being there
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Yakuza is so good at making you feel like you're in Japan.
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I've still never been there...
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I gotta try making a trip before I die lol
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Shenmue was the original Japan simulator, and Yakuza continued it
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Yeah! I remember being blown away by the Sonic figurines you can get from the gashapon/vending machines. I was so happy when I finally got Knuckles, my favorite Sonic character lol
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: And the full Space Harrier game you can play at the arcade
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Your money gets cut in half when you die, just like in Dragon Quest
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Itadakimasu
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I wanna go to Pound Town!
Prime Gamingmentalconflux
: Sounds legit
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: OH SHIT! It's CJ from San Andreas!!!
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Gary Buster. POUNDmate.
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Hell yeah!!!
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: All black people have this ability
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: LMAO!!!
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: He sounds like an actual black person speaking japanese. He's straining his enunciation.
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Dude, I love this game lol
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: Maybe shubn can share his library with you
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I'll ask him
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: He's legit, shubn
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: The Cult is legit, period
BroadcasterInsomniaCult
: So many great people, I am glad to have them
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: I'm glad to be a part. It's an honor, seriously
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: A pimp who truly loves his girls. Wow...
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: What. In the fuck.
ModeratorCULTxArchonus
: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is proud.

@CULT|Archonus I can share my Steam library with you if you want. I had shared it with other CULT members some time ago, but I believe it's linked to the computer it was set up on, which means the ones who changed computer probably don't have access to it anymore.

CULT|Archonus
I would deeply appreciate that!

CULT|shubn
That being said, if you've never played Yakuza before, I'd recommend Yakuza Kiwami, Kiwami 2, and 0 instead. I was reading the Twitch chat while playing, and I believe icy said this one was a step down from the previous ones, and that's also how I feel. Yakuza never had a great combat system in the first place, but I feel going turn-based was a mistake. In fact, it was originally an april fools' joke, but then they decided to go with it and redesign the entire game's combat six months before release.

CULT|icycalm
I've read these remakes are inferior in some ways to the originals
I quoted some tweets on my Twitter about it
Maybe I can find them
If it's true it's a shame, because I was planning to try the series with the remakes

CULT|Archonus
I'm familiar with the Yakuza series. And I'm aware that going the JRPG route isn't the right way to go with the series. But I can still appreciate it for what it is. I'm a weirdo, dude, lol. I just like things for strange reasons. I love me some Dragon Quest and I'm pretty sure I'd like this game.

CULT|icycalm
Plus this is a spinoff so you don't lose plot continuity if you jump straight to it
Can't seem to find the tweets
The poster must not have mentioned yakuza, gotoku or kiwami

CULT|shubn
By remakes you mean Kiwami and Kiwami 2, right?

CULT|icycalm
Yep, that's what they are, no?

CULT|shubn
Yeah

CULT|icycalm
Remasters I guess

CULT|recoil
The Kiwami games are legit remakes. There’s remasters for 3, 4 and 5.

CULT|Ciaróg
You haven't played the latest Dragon Quest have you Archonus? It's on game pass and all my weeb friends said it's great but if they had good taste they wouldn't play so many JRPGs in the first place so I don't know whether to trust them or not.

CULT|Archonus
I don't play many JRPGs at all. I just really like Dragon Quest
No, I haven't played the latest Dragon Quest, tho I plan to
I think the last JRPG I really enjoyed was Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, and I played that a loooong time ago

CULT|icycalm
It's on Steam now
Good time to check it out, for me

CULT|ExiledOne
I remember being interested in Yakuza Inshin awhile back but I never bought it.

CULT|Archonus
As a fan of Dragon Quest, the reason to play a Dragon Quest game is because you like Dragon Quest lol. It just has it's own charm. I don't really know how to explain it. I just enjoy the series.

CULT|icycalm
I've had a sealed copy of the original US Yakuza on PS2 for like 15 years
But it's in storage so never got to play it

CULT|Archonus
The artstyle definitely has a lot to do with it, and I know for damn sure that's an "acquired taste". But it's also the way the series has these slight little adjustments to Western RPG customs and traditions. The way the Japanese handle that stuff. It just has its effect on me.

CULT|shubn
I haven't played Yakuza 1 or 2, only Kiwami and Kiwami 2, so I can't compare them into detail, but I recall some people complaining about a few combat animations not being present in the remakes, and maybe also a small area from 2, so if this is what this is about, I think Kiwami and Kiwami 2 added and improved so much compared to what I've seen of the originals that these people might be nitpicking.

CULT|icycalm
Yes the complaints I saw were roughly what you said.
Good to know. I'll play Kiwami then.

CULT|Archonus
Speaking of JRPGs, I'd like to try that Lord of the Rings: The Third Age game. It's supposed to be a clone of Final Fantasy X. And that sounds just absurd enough to play lmao

CULT|Ciaróg
Getting off topic here but I played that at launch and it's good for what it is. Or at least 12 year old me thought so.

CULT|Archonus
The Third Age?

CULT|Ciaróg
Yeah.

CULT|Archonus
Then it's decided. I simply must play it. I'm even more of a Tolkien fan than a DQ fan. MUCH more. I fucking love that man.
He INVENTED ELVISH!!!!
AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE!!!
In fact, he invented multiple languages for the Elves. And the Black Speech for the followers of Melkor, specifically designed to sound as horrible as possible.
But that's enough of that lol...
I can't wait for our next War for the Crown session...
