Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the seventh installment in the Yakuza series. It’s no secret that the beloved game series is always looking to innovate and refresh its unique brand of open-world action-RPG/crime drama. With the upcoming launch of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has added a twist to the formula that could potentially have lasting implications for the entire series – Infinite Wealth.
Infinite Wealth, which debuted as part of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, is an in-game economy system that allows players to invest in-game currency into businesses, apartments, and more to increase their wealth. In doing so, players have the ability to accumulate enough money to purchase in-game items, which in turn gives them the tools they need to progress further in the game.
The new Infinite Wealth system has the potential to revolutionize the entire Yakuza experience. With the freedom to invest in-game money, players are no longer limited to relying on story missions and grinding to progress through the game. Instead, they can now use their capital to strategically purchase items, upgrade their apartments or businesses, and even purchase rare items to give them the edge in the game.
This opens up a previously unseen level of freedom for Yakuza players, who can now control their own fate by investing wisely and watching their fortunes grow. With access to increased resources, players can take on harder missions with better equipment, and use their newfound wealth to purchase more powerful weapons and rare items.
The implications of Infinite Wealth go even further than just in-game progress. With the ability to make money in-game, Yakuza: Like a Dragon could become a permanent lifestyle for fans of the series, who can now create their very own virtual wealth. Whether it be through simple apartments or big businesses, players can build up a virtual portfolio that will remain in the game for them to access whenever they play.
The potential of Infinite Wealth to rethink and revolutionize the Yakuza experience is incredibly exciting. It promises to give players a completely new way to experience the series, and could even make Yakuza: Like a Dragon an ongoing adventure that players can return to again and again as their virtual fortunes grow.
