Yakuza: Like a Dragon took the spotlight today on Sega’s livestream with Ryu ga Gotoku Studio head Toshihiro Nagoshi, where new gameplay of some new job classes, and three new party members were shown off.
Some of the new job classes shown off include Cook, which uses pans and other cooking utensils to attack; Night Queen, a female-exclusive class that uses a whip to deal highly-damaging attacks; and Fortune Teller and Riot Police, which we took a look at before in screenshots, and get to see in motion here.
Meanwhile, Han Joon-gi is returning in this game, and joins in his Hitman class, a speedy bruiser that can use guns to deal consecutive damage or wide-range damage. Meanwhile, Tianyou Zhao is the leader of the Chinese mafia Yokohama Liumang, and fights using is green dragon blade techniques. He’s a shady person who considers everyone in his group a potential threat, but is also an excellent cook. Just why is someone like him helping Kasuga?
