Trailer Watch: Kurohyou: Ryu ga Gotoku Shinshou

Translated, the title is Black Panther: Like a Dragon New Chapter. That “Like a Dragon” is the Japanese name for what we call the Yakuza series from Sega. In this trailer for the upcoming PSP game, viewers are introduced to the new protagonist, Tatsuya Ukyo, and how he got himself into the sticky situation that makes up the game’s plot. From Japanator:

In case you need a quick summary of what goes down, Ukyo, the protagonist, is trying to flee Tokyo after having murdered a member of the Tojo Clan. He ends up getting knocked out, and awakes to find himself at what appears to be an underground fighting tournament. He’s then told by a manager that he’ll get a free pass on the murder if he joins the tournament.

The first half of the trailer is in Motion Comic form, which I’m not the biggest fan of. Once the gameplay footage starts at around 2:45, this trailer is pure win, showing off combat as well as various minigames and side quests, including some of the hostesses players can meet in clubs.

Kurohyou: Ryu ga Gotoku Shinshou is scheduled to be released in Japan on September 22, 2010. There has been no word on whether or not this game will see an American release.
