The minigames are a massive part of the appeal in any Yakuza title, and it looks like SEGA will be bringing back a classic for the upcoming Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. Those of you who follow the series closely will know that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is currently holding a competition for models to appear in the title – and it’s since confirmed on its Western social media accounts that this is all related to the return of an iconic distraction, the Cabaret Club which first debuted in Yakuza 0.
The new title will see you take control of series stalwart Kazuma Kiryu once more, and will depict the time between Yakuza 6 and the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, so it’s probably safe to assume that the stoic star found a little spare time to run his own cabaret club on the side. For those of you not familiar with the minigame, it’s basically a management mode, where you recruit hostesses and pair them up with paying customers in order to increase your rank – and, of course, income.
No further details have been announced at this stage, but winners of the aforementioned competition will also cameo in Like a Dragon 8 as well. Pretty cool!
