The game plays similar to FF XV but the writing is more GTA mixed with a bit of saints row. If you like RPG's, specifically Dragon Quest, you'll find a fair amount of self aware humor in the writing.

I've never played a Yakuza game before but I was surprised at how much there is to do in this game. It's got It's own Kart racing game and several arcades which feature Virtua Fighter 2 and 5 arcade ports, along with Space Harrier and a few others. There's a business simulator complete with staffing, investing, and shareholder battles. There's a golf mini game and a batting mini game. Ect., ect.

I love it, but if I were to gripe I'd complain that there are a ton of cutscenes and the combat is kind of repetitive, despite the numerous "jobs" (classes, like a mage) you can assign your party members. Each job with it's own weapon sets and skills (spells). And then there's the system of FF like summons, and blah blah blah. You get the point. Lol.

At $35, I'd definitely recommend this. If you hated FF XV though, you probably won't like this.
You are thinking Microsoft first party launch titles, which this isn't.
Yes. All the Day Ichi versions of the game comes with its own steelbook. And then on top of that Best Buy has its own steelbook that has a different design. You get both steelbooks at Best Buy!

Is it really exclusive? My Amazon copy came in a steel case, and I was at Target today and that was also in a steel case. It feels like every retailer got a steel case.

I like it. It's a nice change of pace but, I don't think it's for everyone. I think it kind of starts slow and some people will quit before they get too far in which is a shame.

I've played Yakuza 0 - Kiwami 2. All on gamepass. I fell in love with the series, decided to order the PS4 remastered collection of 3-5 and wait for a PS5.

Anyway, I have this on Xbox and was weary of the turn-based RPG style as well, but it works. It's so fast paced that you may end battles even quicker than you would in the usual beat em up Yakuza. I'm a few hours in and the story has been great, feels like a genuine yakuza game.
