Characters of the Gameplay: Yakuza: Like a Dragon
There are many new and playable roles in the game Yakuza: Like a Dragon. This is the first time in the Yakuza series when Yazuma Kiryu isn’t a protagonist. We are introduced to Ichiban Kasuga playing in place of Kiryu. There are two female fighter characters in the game, Eri Kamataki, and Saeko Mukoda. The party of the player-controlled characters includes Joon-gi Han, Tianyou Zhao, Koichi Adachi, and Yu Nanba. Yakuza: Like a Dragon allows the players to call the characters like Yazuma Kiryu, Taiga Saegima, and Goro Majima to assist them in a battle.
The Plot of the Gameplay: Yakuza: Like a Dragon
The plot is a masterpiece by Masayoshi Yokoyama. After a lot of Yazuma Kiryu, our new protagonist has a new story for us. We will be following, or here playing, Ichiban Kasuga, the protagonist in Yazuka: Like a Dragon. Ichiban is released from 18 years of imprisonment, which he mistook as glory. He was tricked to get into prison, and now it is his time to take revenge on the one who tricked him. Ichiban makes friends with Koichi Adaichi who later dies in the gameplay. In his quest, Ichiban Kasuga tries to maintain as much peace as possible, but he ends up losing the ones who hurt him. At the end of the game, we see our hero attending the final rites of the game’s antagonists. He even declines a good opportunity to stay in his city and look over the peace.
