Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio celebrated a great success with Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Fans now wondered if the Yakuza franchise will keep the turn-based gameplay of the title or if it will return to its roots. IGN got to the bottom of this in an interview with Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios Executive Producer Toshihiro Nahoshi and Producer Kazuki Hosokawa. When asked if Judgment will continue the classic Yakuza gameplay while Yakuza is now a turn-based RPG, they replied:
“That’s right. The Yakuza series has been turned into a turn-based RPG. On the other hand, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has acquired the resources and knowledge to create exciting action games that are just plain fun. We decided that we Let our action gameplay live on through Lost Judgment. “
The Yakuza series will henceforth be an RPG and fans of the old Yakuza gameplay can enjoy Lost Judgment.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon was the first turn-based RPG in the Yakuza series. The title is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC. We also really liked the RPG format, so we forgave in our test a rating of 9/10.
The sequel to Judgment, the detective game hit of 2019, was announced by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio just yesterday.
