SEGA has released new details regarding Yakuza: Like a Dragon! The new information includes Gangster and Military enemies as well as new summons Ichiban may use in the game.
Two types of enemies found in Yakuza: Like a Dragon are Gangsters and Military families. Gangsters range from Color Gangster to Gangster Boss.
Lower leveled Gangsters only fight with fists but higher leveled Gangster wield firearms which may cause high damage. Gunfire can’t be defended against so its important to wield the right equipment and recovery items before battle.
Military enemies range from Military Otaku (yes, this is a Yakuza game after all) to Armynater. These enemies wield bow guns and kukri knives, experts in both close and ranged combat.
Higher leveled military enemies may use grenades, powerful bow gun shots and even laser beams from their eyes!
Two new summons were detailed including Kiyoe Shirakawa and Striking Falcon. Kiyoe Shirakawa’s summon skill is “Madonna’s Cooking,” a pork soup recovery move that heals MP to all characters in the party.
Striking Falcon’s summon skill is “Idaten Dance,” an attack where Striking Falcon mows down enemies with his motorcycle with a chance of inflicting a heat damage status aliment.
