YouTube Video Reveals Yakuza 8’s First Glimpse
Are you desperate to get back into the intense fighting and deep-seated eating experiences of the Yakuza series?
You’re in luck, as a YouTube video first reported by Famitsu gives us a glimpse at the potential stars of the Yakuza 8 movie.
Three of the most respected players in the game, Yu Nanba, Koichi Adachi to Ichiban Kasuga, are all set to make a comeback.
Are you curious about who you might see in the next Yakuza Adventure?
These images were taken by Mikuru Asakura, a Japanese MMA fighter. He takes a tour of Sega Sammy’s offices. Part of the tour is in the main offices of the developers, where you can see glimpses of the characters.
The fascinating revelation from the short shots of the characters is Ichiban Kasuga. He seems to have chosen a different look and has ditched his afro in favour of a more slicked-back ponytail.
Although it isn’t Kazuma Kiryu changing from a white suit to a tropical shirt in his many attempts at retirement, it’s an impressive switch-up for the respected ruiner of bad guys’ faces.
Other than these images, information on Yakuza 8 is scarce. GamesRadar Last year, it was reported that the game would be set many years after Yakuza: Like a Dragon. It will still feature the same turn-based combat system the series adapted in that game.
If you are looking for a new Yakuza experience and have completed all the games in the series, you can try Fallout New Vegas. Kazuma Kiryu will be slaying bloodthirsty criminals instead of Japanese gang members.
No matter if Kiryu Vegas appeals to you, follow us to receive Yakuza8 updates whenever new information is available about the game.
