Someone Got A Rhythm Game In My Yakuza Restoration

By Eugene . January 13, 2014 . 2:27pm

Remember when we broke the news that Yakuza Restoration was going to go anywhere with you via a Vita app that synced with the game? Sega have demonstrated the feature in a new video, which you can watch below.



As mentioned in our last report, this feature works by uploading your save data from your PlayStation version to the cloud and then down to your Vita. Not exactly perfect, but that’ll have to do. Nonetheless, what you get in the app is a very meaty, chunky piece of katana-wielding flesh.



Like the Another Life section, where you’ll be able to harvest and cook your foods. Cooking involves a mini-rhythm game in order to slice and dice properly.



The big piece fans should be interested in though is the Battle Dungeon. Here, you’ll fight waves of pirates and other foes. The thing to note is that the cards on the right side of the screen correspond to different skills which you can access easily just by tapping on them to swap between.


Finally, the gambling mini-games section, where you’ll get to choose from various mini-games. They go through a round of mahjong and you can earn money from this that goes back into your live game.


Yakuza Restoration will be out on PlayStation 3 and 4 as well as have the above Vita app February 22nd.

    Safe to assume this won’t be seeing the light of day in the West?

      Unfortunately. I’d love to see it over here as much as Yakuza 5, but unless XSeed surprises us or something, it’s probably not happening.

      Don’t know. Sony did show interest in bringing this one to the West, and since it’s one of the big JP title for the PS4, the chance is high.

      Don’t stop believing.

    Cooking game, even Kazuma Kiryu and Hello kitty can do it.

    They made Haruka’s campaign in Y5 based on a rhythm game.

    I think it would be more interesting as a spin-off. They had a few good ideas for gameplay there.

      Sadly Haruka is not Anime moe enough to carry her own game and would get eclipsed by the likes of Hatsuni Miku, [email protected], Dream C Club and any other Anime rhythm games…

      • Luis Camargo

        Haruka alone would not carry the game, but I think the gameplay itselft and songs could. Add some Yakuza-like story mode and charm in it (Majima-like) and it might work.

          I liked it, Haruka’s chapter was refreshing after 30-40 hours of punching people. I liked it way more than Saejima’s hunting game at least.

          Heck, they made crappy shooting mechanic in Yakuza into a full game and it was horrible, but still got published.
