IGN spoke with Ryu ga Gotoku Studio executive producer Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Kazuki Hosokawa about the future of the Yakuza series, and it sounds like fans who enjoyed Yakuza 7 / Yakuza: Like a Dragon are in for a treat. According to the producers, future entries will maintain the turn-based RPG gameplay that was introduced in the latest installment.
When asked if the Judgment series—which is getting a second installment in the recently announced Lost Judgment—Represents the continued style of earlier, action-centric Yakuza games, the producers replied, "That's right." Thus, the main Yakuza series will continue its newly established focus on turn-based combat.
"We decided that we should let our signature action gameplay live on through Lost Judgment, "they added.
If you haven't given the new standard of turn-based Yakuza gameplay a shot yet, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC.
