Fans Are Divided Like A Dragon: Ishin’s New Battle As Card Star In Latest Trailer



Welcome to Like a Dragon: Isshin! It has been largely positive since the game was revealed last year. After all, it is a remake of a highly rated installment that was never officially released outside of Japan. We’re all looking forward to another exciting RGG Studio adventure, but for some fans, there’s some concern over one of Ishin’s new mechanics (which was highlighted in the title’s latest trailer).

The ‘trooper card’ system, which doesn’t feature in the original game, actually lets you collect and level up special abilities that can be used in battle. Based on what we’ve seen, these powers are usually over-the-top, with protagonist Ryoma slinging fireballs and laser beams at his enemies.

Now, it’s important to note that Trooper cards don’t change the base combat system of the game. You can still beat the hell out of thugs with your sword, guns, or fists — and you apparently don’t have to equip cards if you don’t want to.

However, there is a concern that combat in general is now balanced around the use of Trooper cards. Boss enemies in particular can now use their own special attacks and abilities, so it stands to reason that if you want to level the playing field, you’ll probably have to equip some cards and go Super Saiyan. There are more obvious concerns that having such crazy tech detracts from the serious tone of the game (in the main story, at least).
