Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a remake of 2014’s Yakuza Ishin, a spin-off entry in the Yakuza series that has remained a Japanese-only title until now. One of the remake’s major new additions is the Trooper Card system that lets you use special superpowers in combat and during boss fights.
The trooper cards reference characters from all over the series, as well as the aforementioned guest additions. A huge portion of the game will revolve around finding all of these cards to gain new powers for your main character Sakamoto Ryoma.
The developers have also confirmed that this mechanic will be entirely optional due to complaints from players as to its absurdity and that it distracts from the game’s otherwise relatively serious and grounded tone.
We know customizing your experience is important and we're pleased to confirm you can disable blood and the numerical damage display via the in-game options. Also, by not selecting any Trooper Cards, you're able to fight without this particular feature. #LikeaDragonIshin pic.twitter.com/ZHH4WJvrTl
