It's hard participating in this after having Wolfenstein:Youngblood and Yakuza 7 in my top 5 for so long. Loooook what happened. Youngblood turned out to be a piece of shit. Yakuza 7 is going to charge money for difficulty selection and new game+. Stinky garbage. I may need another month off and some therapy.

I liked Youngblood personally. It wasn't a great game, but it was a good game imo.

Where are people getting this thing about Sega charging for Yakuza 7's new game+ and hardest difficulty mode from? The only thing I could find about it was this, that said it is most likely free DLC:

During today's Sega Nama Broadcast, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios head Toshihiro Nagoshi confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be receiving a "New Game Plus" option and harder difficulty mode as DLC. New Game Plus is pretty self-explanatory, but the harder difficulty will be specifically for players that have already completed the game. As you enter the next cycle, you can increase the challenge so you don't sleepwalk through the game.

Nothing was confirmed about price or whether the western version would include this as a standard feature. In the past, Yakuza titles in the west have come with all post-launch DLC included or as free updates. From what was described, everything here is merely extra bells and whistles to an already complete game.

Like a Dragon does already have free DLC, though. Following the release of the game in Japan last month, Sega began giving out free updates for seven weeks. It stands to reason that this new difficulty option and New Game Plus mode will fall into that category. Considering this is the last update and is planned for February 27, that is likely the case.

It was all over Youtube in February. I saw it first via a Yongyea upload. As of May, NG+ costs $9 USD in Japan.

I cant find anything that indicates it has been made free since then. Perhaps the western release will be different, but again, I can't find anything that points in that direction.
