Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

Releasing in 2024 and still crossgen... This is going to be one long ass generation.

Yeah this is what crossgen is. It's taking longer than usual to transition to the new generation, and it will probably take even longer transitioning from PS5/Series to PS6/Series Next.

Yes, Also Kiryu hair has turned grey and for some reason brought him back as 2 team protagonist, It's gonna be RPG again and Kiryu own party is legacy team.

I made a thread as well, but I locked mine and copied it into your OP since you created it a few minutes before me, and someone had already replied in yours, etc.

The cross gen is a bit surprising on Like a Dragon 8 (2), but I'm looking forward to another RPG with Ichiban and this time including Kiryu as a protagonist.

Thanks hugs. also Kiryu own team is team legacy I think?

I wonder if they'll be turn based again. I haven't actually gotten round to the new turn based one yet, but it definitely appeals to me a lot more following that shift!



So we have Ishin in february, Gaiden and 8.... loving it. I believe Gaiden will be action and 8 turn based.

Still doing cross-gen in 2024 for games like this seems like a clear waste of resources since software sales on the PS4 and especially Xbox One are gonna be minuscule by then. I really hope this is just Sega being stupid and there's pretty much nothing else of note still cross-gen by then other than sports titles. It wouldn't surprise me if the PS4 and Xbox One versions end up getting cancelled later on.

For the game itself I would like to try this series at some point, it seems full of silly fun.
