f**king hell. Combat is going to be turn based ONLY. 

 

Don't know if the April 1st footage was a joke or today's announcement is. :doh:

 

Nah I think it's still a joke or something. I refuse to believe it. 

Or maybe it's in a particular game mode or mini game. 

Although I quite like turn based combat as well but I don't think it'll ever translate well to yakuza.

oh for f**k sake!! Was quite happy to see a new Yakuza thread and disappointed once i open it.

 

Lol exactly the same feeling!! Hopefully this is just a bonus mode or something or RGG Studios patch in actual action based combat!!

 

There are series where turn based combat is fun. But the action style gameplay - especially with combat styles is damn fun in Yakuza. Don't want to see Turn based gameplay here of all places.

 

Oh well - will still buy it. I always like Yakuza stories, sub-stories, side content and exploring the city/cities. But just a tad disappointed with this decision.

 

And who knows - RGG might just hit it out of the park with this one. Gameplay has been the same for the past 7 main games + the 4-5 side games. They've tried tons of things from styles to multiple characters. So the change might just get their creativity flowing and they might just make it an amazing experience - even better than the old games!!

Yakuza for me is a combination of Over the top action + Weird side stories + Unique characters. I am not a fan of turn based combat because I suck at it and gets bored easily. If this turn out to be a really good game, I will miss out.

@b!T @Joe Cool While I think so too, I wouldn't get too worried. There is a lot of time for the Western Release. If the turn-based combat is not well received in RGG Studio's main Markets (Japan/China/Korea), we might see the action gameplay patch by the time of the Western Release (With it being released as a free patch for the native markets).

 

I agree, with Yakuza's graphical style - turn based gameplay does not match at all.

 

But I kinda understand where RGG Studios is coming from as well. They said they wanted to try something new. And it's understandable after developing the franchise for around 14 years with 6 main-line games and around 4 spin-offs (Ishin, Kenzan, Dead Souls and Judgement). Add in Yakuza 0 and the 2 Remake Games (Kiwami 1 and Kiwami 2). That's 13 Games over 14 years - almost 1 new game per year. I'm not even counting the remasters (3,4 and 5 HD). And almost all having the same gameplay - no wonder they got bored and wanted to try something new.
