Yakuza Combat Will Forward Be Turn-Based Going

Following the reveal of Lost Judgment, an interview with Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio director Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Kazuki Hosokawa has surfaced on IGN. Lost Judgment brings Ryu Ga Gotoku back to its action-combat roots, leaving many fans to wonder if that meant the Yakuza series would also return to that style following last year's Yakuza: Like a Dragon.Speaking to IGN, Nagoshi and Hosokawa confirmed that the Judgment series will carry on the studio's action style of gameplay, while Yakuza will continue to evolve as a turn-based RPG. "The Yakuza series has been transformed into a turn-based RPG," they told IGN. "On the other hand, over the years, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has accumulated resources and know-how of making flashy and exhilarating action games that are effortless to enjoy. We decided that we should let our signature action gameplay live on through Lost Judgment." Yakuza: Like a Dragon's turn-based combat Romain Mahut of GameBlog was in attendance at a virtual "Judgment Day" event that followed the Lost Judgment reveal and asked if the studio considered using turn-based combat similar to that of Yakuza: Like a Dragon for Lost Judgment. "For Yakuza: Like a Dragon, we changed the game's battle system from action into a turn-based RPG," Nagoshi said in response. "This was a huge challenge for us, but it was well-received, which we were thrilled to hear. We did discuss the possibility of developing that battle system further for our next title, and while we may pursue the turn-based system even outside the Yakuza series, the conclusion we ended up at was that because this is a different series, the best approach would be to keep them separate and refine what makes each series great. It's my hope that our customers feel the same way we do. That's why we chose 'action' as an important keyword for the Judgment series.  Nagoshi also said on the Judgment Day video he believes that, when possible, a simultaneous global launch is "the right way to go" and that the team has "determined to make every effort to support this for all [its] games moving forward." This is significant as the Yakuza series has a long tradition of Western versions releasing years after the Japanese version. Following the success of Yakuza 0 in the West, the release windows have narrowed, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which debuted last year, still had a 10-month gap between the Japanese and worldwide releases. Lost Judgment's action-oriented combat Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, while Lost Judgment comes to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 24. For more on what we thought about Yakuza: Like a Dragon, check out our review here.

    CS Soapbox: Why Ken Jeong Should Replace T.I. in Ant-Man 3

    With 50% of most living creatures destroyed of existence, a savior was needed by the universe in  Avengers: Endgame . Enter  U Store ’s (Self Storage) resident security dude, who managed to get easy for Ant-Man to capitalize on his return from the Quantum Realm. Scott Lang would continue to greatly help save the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it is well known by us, however, not before Ken Jeong’s security guard freed him from the sidekick is necessary by that warehouse prison-every hero.

    Jeong’s  Endgame  appearance was section of a number of related cameos in the MCU. Before directing  Captain America: THE WINTERTIME Soldier , the Russo brothers done the NBC sitcom  Community . If they were hired by Marvel Studios, they brought some  Community  alum alongside them. 

    Following Danny Pudi’s cameo in  THE WINTERTIME Soldier Community  cameos became sort of running joke in the MCU; everyone from Yvette Nicole Brown (also in Endgame ), Donald Glover, and Jim Rash to Aaron Himelstein and DC Pierson have came out (Brie Larson and Randall Park have even become recurring characters). Now, there’s a chance for Jeong’s security guard to become full-fledged character in  Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

    If you haven’t heard, T.I. will never be returning alongside Paul Rudd in the threequel. The news headlines comes amidst allegations contrary to the rapper/actor and his wife for  “sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, harassment and assault.”  T.I. was formally announced as an ingredient of&nbsp never; Ant-Man 3  so he might not need been the right section of the film to begin with. However, it appears unlikely the writers wouldn’t desire to keep carefully the franchise’s comedic trifecta intact. 

    T.I. debuted alongside Scott’s friend Luis (Michael Peña) as fellow ex-con Dave. In  Ant-Man and the Wasp , Scott, Luis (Michael Peña), Dave, and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) ran a security company astutely named Ex-Con. Having said that, if Scott’s crew will probably remain full require a new quirky character it’ll, and who much better than Jeong’s inaudible security guard having an affinity for JG Ballard’s  The Terminal Beach

    After “Security Guard” got Scott from the storage cage, that they had some interaction offscreen presumably. He told Scott about Thanos probably, days gone by five years, and perhaps they talked just a little shop even. In the end, they’re both in the security game-which is excatly why it seems sensible for Scott, having lost Dave, to create his new friend in to the fold as a hilarious foil to Kurt and Luis. In fact, it creates so much sense, it’s probably already happening.

    With over twenty years of acting credits, Jeong has generated comedic chemistry with much everyone pretty. We have a tendency to associate him with belligerent characters like  The Hangover ’s Mr. Chow, crying “toodle-oo motherf*ckers” within an exaggerated accent. Despite limited screen time, he appears to steal the show always. From appearances in  Crazy Rich Asians Community  as a tyrant hell-bent on Greendale domination, or across from Rudd in&nbsp even; Role Models , and dealing with Peña recently in Tom and Jerry , Jeong is made for larger-than-life supporting roles. However, he didn’t will have to be loud to obtain his point across. Sometimes all it requires is 9 seconds of silence and a Tom Selleck stache. 

    We took notice of  Endgame ’s intrepid defender of storage. So, ditch the hat and present the man a genuine name. Since  Endgame  was the Russos’ last Marvel film reportedly, the move would solidify Greendale Community College’s unspoken hold on the MCU-a subtle reminder of the cinematic universe’s best entries. In  Ant-Man 3  his character could possibly be nuanced, awkward and nerdy (for insufficient an improved word), worth the science fiction he reads. A turn much like when he donned the white coat for his sitcom Dr. Ken . With a villain as infectious as Kang the Conqueror coming, a hero, or rather, a sidekick, is what the physician ordered just.
