Yakuza Restoration is a different take on the Yakuza series, it’s set during Japan’s Bakumatsu period and has Kazuma Kiryu take on the role of historical figures. Earlier, we saw Kazuma as Saito Hajime, captain of the third unit of the Shinsengumi.
New screenshots released by Sega show Kazuma as Sakamoto Ryoma. The game will start with how Sakamoto Ryoma died after Bakufu supporters caught up to him. Sega also says Yakuza Restoration will have more elements that make it feel like a JRPG.
