A Prequel To The Yakuza Series
The setting for the game is in 1988. The storyline follows a dispute regarding a “Vacant Lot” between several illegal organizations. Goro Majima and Kazuma Kiryu find themselves hurled in this fight and at the same time investigate the people behind this dispute.
Kiryu will also be targeted since he’s suspected of murdering someone with connections to a real estate property many Yakuza groups have their eye on. Kiryu will then have to prove his innocence and protect his family from several death threats.
The game will take you back to how Japan looked like during 1988. Locations will be filled with neon light signs streets. The game’s imagery is a beauty despite garbage lining the streets.
However, the game will feel restrictive. As a player, you won’t be able to explore other than where you’re meant to go in the game.
Kiryu and Majima can switch fighting styles when faced with thugs. For instance, Kiryu can switch between Rush, Beast and Brawler. Majima on the other hand can fight between Breaker style, Thug or Slugger.
Upgrading these characters also comes after purchasing abilities from a skill tree. Kiryu and Majima can also enhance their fighting styles by training with several masters.
The Business Edition
Pre-ordering the game means that you’re automatically upgraded to The Business Edition. This edition comes with the physical copy of the game, bilingual cards for Kiryu and Majima, a stainless steel business card holder and a card that exclusively features five game hostesses.
