Among the many things the Yakuza series is known for, its silly and surprisingly deep minigames rank pretty high.
According to Sega, the upcoming Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will include a new minigame called Clan Creator, which will let players form custom clans from a pool of their favorite Yakuza characters and battle them against their friends’ clans.
Yakuza 6’s Clan Creator plays like a top-down real-time strategy game, with AI-controlled fighters brawling with enemy clans on the streets. Players can spend experience points to train their clan “leaders,” which not only include Yakuza characters like Kiryu, Daigo, Akiyama, and Date, but famous names from the Japanese pro wrestling scene. Each leader has their own special skills that let players heal or buff their AI-controlled fighters as brawls play out.
