I just noticed it will be called "Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon" in the west.
For those who don't know, this series is not called Yakuza in Japan, but Ryu Ga Gotoku (Like a Dragon).

Reminds me of Resident Evil 7: Bio Hazard.
Maybe in Japan it will be called Ryu ga Gotoku: Yakuza.

Wow looks really interesting! Man I need to catch up and play the others!!

If you haven't played 0 yet, I recommend that one highly.

Thanks! That's definitely on my list!!  Have you played the Kiwami 1 & 2? If so, is it significantly different than the originals on PS2?

Most interesting Part will be the Combat system, First Time for the series

Yeah, there are significant changes both to gameplay and story. For example, a certain character in 0 has their story fleshed out more in Kiwami 1, to make more sense after the events of 0. And a new character in 0 is added to Kiwami 2.
For gameplay there's for example the 'Majima everywhere' system. And Kiwami 2 uses the new Yakuza 6 engine, so it looks more impressive.

So, Kiwami 1 uses the old engine? Eeenteresting. I thought both Kiwami's used the new engine.

Yeah, it's because Kiwami 1 released in Japan on January 2016, on both PS3 and PS4. So it used the previous generation engine.
One year later Yakuza 6 released on PS4 only, with the new next gen engine. And a year after that, Kiwami 2 came out.

Thanks for the clarification. In addition to not realizing Kiwami 1 used the old engine, I also didn't know it was released on PS3 in Japan.

Yeah, in Japan both Kiwami 1 and Yakuza 0 were released on both PS3 and PS4.
But when they came to the west, they were only released for PS4, so that's probably why you didn't realize.

Honestly, the RPG combat system has gotten me more hyped for a Yakuza game then ever before lol.

Games were good before... but I cant help feel the same.

Time for something differnt :)
