Yakuza: Like a Dragon gets November release date, shows off daft Job combat classes

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the latest entry in developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s acclaimed action series, finally has a proper release date in the west; it’ll be heading to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 13th November, and there’s a new trailer – showcasing its ridiculous Job classes – to celebrate.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, if you’re unfamiliar, marks a considerable departure for the long-running series; while it retains the gleeful side quests and activities of previous instalments as players explore the streets of new setting Kamurocho, there’s a brand-new protagonist in the form of Ichiban Kasuga, and it trades the meaty beat-’em up action of old for a (surprisingly successful) turn-based combat system similar to that of an RPG.

As part of the latter, players are now able to adopt over 20 different Jobs, which essentially function like classes, opening up a range of new abilities that can be deployed in battle.
