The way they made the trailer they tried showing a lot of contents which are present in the game. 



Anyone who has played Persona and looking to play something similar kind ; then you should definitely try this game. Story is good and gameplay is same as P5R.

It's a good game, but I always felt it was Persona - Wannabe after Persona 5's phenomenal success. Story-wise and character-wise, frankly, other Yakuza games themselves have done far better (Namely Yakuza 0 and Yakuza 5), and I would rate Persona 5's story, characters and villains far above this. Nothing comes close to the vileness displayed by Kamoshida, Futaba's Trauma and so much more (Not to mention the friendships and Confidant Bonding) in this game. Confidant Conversations and Romances are also unnecessary and badly implemented here - unlike in Persona 5 where each interaction was carefully planned out and written in an amazing way to tell the proper story of a character.

 

It's a good game, but don't raise people's hopes that it's close to Persona 5. It's not and if people go in with that expectation  - they will be disappointed. I would rate this story close to Yakuza 1/Kiwami 1, considering that it follows so many of the exact same story beats. Good, but nowhere near the best of what even the Yakuza Team can do.

Haha, yeah obviously. Persona 5 is the benchmark setter. This game just follows that style like you mentioned wanna be. That’s what I meant. But I am myself being a persona fan I can relate so much of persona style in this game. Humor, Emotions, dialogues  and other twists and turns and other small things. And obviously it can’t reach the heights of yakuza 0 (from story perspective and characters... Kiryu kills everything) but this is still a great game. I am thinking of playing it second time New Game+ with different Jobs. And once you play this game you can’t go back to older yakuza games because they will feel outdated. And to be honest I liked this game more than FF7 Remake. :)
