Sega has released a new video showcasing the battle system for the upcoming Yakuza 0.
This time around, Kiryu and Majima each have three unique fighting styles that can be used to beat down enemies with extreme prejudice. Players can also invest in various abilities to ensure that Kiryu and Majima are the meanest business men to walk the streets! Kiryu’s Brawler is a well-balanced mix of light and heavy attacks that is perfect for any situation. Want to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee? The rapid-fire Rush is the perfect style to flurry enemies into unconsciousness. If raw strength is what you’re looking for, Beast is all you need. Kiryu will even automatically pick up environmental weapons (like bikes and signs) to use as bashing tools!
Not to be outdone, Majima’s balanced Thug puts great emphasis on bone shattering takedowns, throws, and counter attacks. Want to bring a bat to a fist fight? Say no more fam. Make every fight a real home run with Slugger style! Oh wait, you feel like breakdance fighting? Breaker will both put on a dazzling show and serve up a hot plate of pain for hapless enemies.
If you’re in a rush and can’t be bothered to fight every single person that steps up, just make it rain with some cash to get them to immediately stop in their tracks to collect. But watch out! “Mr. Shakedown” can appear out of nowhere and take all your money if you’re not careful
Yakuza 0 will launch January 24, 2017 for PS4.
*In Case You Missed It- It was also announced that Yakuza 6, and a remake of the original Yakuza game will also come to the west; you can read about that here.
