The lights are on
Yakuza franchise creator Toshihiro Nagoshi said that he feels that the next game in the series has to innovate in its action mechanics.Speaking at a Japanese press conference covered by Famitsu and translated by Andriasang, Nagoshi said that he has no plans to remove or drastically alter the "drama" parts of the game. Technology and gameplay, however, are a different story. Nagoshi believes that changes are necessary to make Yakuza 5 appealing to both fans and newcomers, despite this redesign process adding a significant amount of development time to the game.Have you been on the fence about Yakuza? Will modern action gameplay be enough to get you to check out the fifth game?
[GASP] Modernized gameplay in a modern game!? What a concept!!!
never been a fan of this series, glad to see they're finally modernizing the mechanics
I really liked Yakuza 4. It's a super long game with excellent characters and bad ass gameplay and total brawler like fight mechanics. But I'm totally down for developers to try new stuff and what not. I have faith.
I've never played the Yakuza games, but oddly I've always known about them and wanted to. I'd like to think I'll try out the current ones eventually though.
great, I had so much playing 4
A Japanese developer? Modernizing? Hello European and U.S. sales, goodbye Japan sales.
cnt say ive playd any yakuza game so 4give me if i ask wat their definition of modernizing would be??
yes. most games from japan suffer slightly weird controls. fixing that will def fix the game for me.
Yakuza 4 is one of my favorite games, so having a Yakuza 5 in the works gets a thumbs up from me. The fighting mechanics bring a real sense of brawling, so if they update the fighting portion, I still hope they carry over the best parts. The drama portions were so good in Yakuza 4, and I hope to see more stories like that as the franchise continues.
love the yakuza games altho 4 wasn't as good as the others imo while i don't mind the gameplay at all i do think they could improve in a few areas on it maybe open up kamurocho more than just having a few main roads n stuff and maybe have battles real-time of something don't think they necessarily need to change the battle mechanics much tho
Cool. I've never played any of the previous Yakuza titles but I was intrigued by them. If the combat's modernization ends up by working, I might check it out :)
Yay detachable earlobes.
Wow. They have 5 of these things out? I haven't played any of em.
Yakuza 5, already? Are they trying to compete with FF and Dynasty Warriors? XD
Knowing that they acknowledge the other games' lack of gameplay quality has pushed me over the fence and I will probably try this one out.
