Ichiban Kasuga is back after serving his time. Yakuza 6 marked the exit for Kazuma Kiryu. The new protagonist is not the only new element in the game. The game departs from the previous Yakuza ‘beat ’em action’ games by introducing turned based RPG style combat. The game has also moved from Tokyo to Yokohama. It will also feature Kamurocho and Sotenbori, Osaka.

‘Yakuza: How will you rise?’ trailer dropped some hours ago, giving us some a look at the gameplay. Although it is no secret since it has already released in Japan, we get a glimpse of the English dubbed mainline version for the first time.

Also, it introduces some new characters like Koichi Adachi, Nanba, and Saeko Mukoda.
