It can be difficult to put into words why the Yakuza series is so popular and has such a strong following from its fan base.
Maybe it’s the powerful gangster-themed drama that unfolds or the excellent and fun combat systems the game normally employs. Maybe it’s the way players can live the life of a powerful Yakuza in a downtown Japanese city or maybe, just maybe, it’s the array of utterly ridiculous, but hilariously fun things the game lets players do in the game. The new trailer, ‘The Quest Begins’, most certainly showcases the latter part of that equation!
“Yokohama features a plethora of fun and hilarious distractions, including kart racing, batting cages, SEGA arcades, high-octane vocational school tests, and the ability to manage and grow your own company! Ichiban and his ragtag crew of friends have endless fun activities to engage with as they try to restore justice to the streets of Yokohama.”
That’s not all, though; the end of “The Quest Begins” features a special surprise. For the first time in the series’ history, Yakuza: Like a Dragon features English renditions of fans’ most beloved karaoke songs from previous entries in the series, as well as several brand-new songs.
The full list of English-voiced karaoke songs includes:
- Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool)
- Hell Stew
- Like a Butterfly
- Machine Gun Kiss
- Spring Breeze
- The Future I Dreamed Of
