Sega To Charge For Yakuza Like A Dragon New Game Plus Mode

In what appears like probably the most Sega transfer ever, the writer plans on charging cash for Yakuza: Like a Dragon‘s New Game+ mode. The hotly anticipated turn-based RPG iteration of the beloved Yakuza franchise released in January of this year in Japan and Sega laid out the game’s intensive DLC plans for 2020 on the Like a Dragon web site. Anyone familiar with other Japanese developer’s DLC practices already knows that the publisher isn’t shy about charging an arm, leg, and more for its DLC. So, the information that the Like a Dragon “Premium Master” New Game+ mode will price gamers cash comes as no shock.

The DLC pack will price a particular worth of seven yen, (or about 6 cents USD) from when it releases on April sixth by May sixth. After that time, the price of the New Game+ DLC will rise to 980 yen, or roughly about $9 USD. Sega employed related worth ways with DLC for Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax, Valkyria Chronicles 4, and different latest titles, but it nonetheless feels brazen to see an organization cost cash for a mode that may be a customary within the JRPG style (to not point out gaming usually) relationship again to Chrono Trigger.

In equity to Sega, the Premium Masters pack is more than just the addition of a chance to play through the game again with the statistics and gadgets of your cleared recreation knowledge. The pack additionally contains further problem ranges, a brand new trophy, elevated job stage cap, gadgets, costumes, and extra. That mentioned, Sega is as much as their outdated methods with the remainder of the Like a Dragon DLC, which incorporates DLC packs for sponsored costumes and a soundtrack pack that may price round $22 USD that lets gamers hearken to previous Yakuza soundtracks in-game.

Sure, it’s no “Dead or Alive 6 charging almost $100 for new costumes and hair,” however all the identical: Sega remains to be Sega.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is out now in Japan and at present has no set launch date for the United States, but the publisher states that it will be sometime in 2020.
