Don't be remade! "Ryu ga Gotoku pole" is the "pole" quality that fans are addicted to


The addictiveness of the man, the stubborn view of the world, the laughter and the tears that swallow all the big game. The writer who was completely disappointed with such “Ryu ga Gotoku” played the 10th anniversary commemorative work “Ryu ga Gotoku Goku”. Because it is a full remake of the first work, I am familiar with both the story and the system, but I am overwhelmed by "extreme quality". Deliver the charm of "Ryu ga Gotoku pole" that is still not enough to play for 40 hours.

In the first place, what is "Dragon like"? The legendary polar road, Kazuma Kiryu, the story of the origin

"Ryu ga Gotoku" is a huge hit series that has gained popularity with human drama woven by the poles, a deadly struggle with blood and sweat, and a variety of games scattered throughout Kamurocho. However, if the series lasts for 10 years, many people may end up saying, “It ’s hard to chase from“ 1 ”now…”. Certainly, the “Ryu ga Gotoku” series can be enjoyed without problems even if it is played in the middle. But if you can, start playing from "1"! After all, “1” is the starting point of everything. In the story, “Ryu ga Gotoku 0, place of vows” depicting the past is the first, but the essence of the series, such as the life of the main character, Kazuma Kiryu, a completely recreated entertainment district, and a play element packed in there After all it is "1" that is condensed tightly.

Speaking of “Dragon Gakuza”, this person! Kazuma Kiryu, known as the “Legendary Pole”, will explode !!

Speaking of “Dragon Gakuza”, this person! Kazuma Kiryu, known as the “Legendary Pole”, will explode !!

“1” depicts a story that originated in 1995 with the death of the group leader. At the time, Kazuma Kiryu was envy of the future as an assistant to Tojo Aidojima Gumi. Akira Nishikiyama, who grew up in the same nursing home, also belonged to the Dojima group and enjoyed a young day with Yumi Sawamura, who also grew up in the same facility. However, their fate changes abruptly because Dojima Kumigami struck Yumi. Kiryu, who rushed to the Dojima-gumi office, looked at Nishikiyama, who was obsessed with a pistol, Yumi who threatened, and Dojima-gumi, who died. The next moment Kiryu makes a decision. Instead of Nishikiyama, who has a sick sister, he decides to kill the team leader. Ten years later, Kiryu, who finished his service and returned to Kamurocho, was involved in a struggle over 10 billion that had disappeared from the Tojokai …

Kiryu and Nishikiyama, who grew up in the same facility, are close friends. It seemed that the two would carry the Dojima group as they were ...?

I was also prepared for “insulation” from the group, but the organization gave me the “exam” that left the possibility of return. Why did I have the unforgivable sin of “parental killing”?

If you like Yakuza movies, V cine lovers, and suspense dramas, you should be numb. Tojo has been in prison for 10 years for his best friend, and if he thinks he has finally come out, Tojokai becomes muddy with bloody internal conflict. The former best friend is transformed like a different person, over the tactics that shake the group. Characters such as a young girl who holds the key to the incident, a mysterious information store, a criminal from the former investigation section 1, a suspicious Chinese character, etc. are drawn to the story with only dark characters. However, the “detour” element described below is too attractive to move forward. "I want to know the destination sooner, but I want to play more in Kamuro-cho!"

Everything is “extreme” quality! Added a story about 10 years of Geumsan

In the remake “Ryu ga Gotoku Goku”, a new episode is added that tells you what happened to Nishikiyama during the ten years Kiryu was imprisoned. A movie will be added to the head of each chapter, but it's an unscrupulous thing about Nishikiyama. Since it becomes spoiler, I will avoid details, but the charm of Nishikiyama who is a little human being is drawn carefully, such as brother and sister love that tries to save my sister in intractable disease, refracted heart to Kiryu, pride that can not be thrown away. The volume is not so much, but the reason why "Kinkiyama has become so much" should be communicated. Personally, tension rises in a scene where Nishikiyama, who had divided hair at the center, makes it all back!

Clearly, Nishikiyama's past is convinced that "I'll refract this ...". This is Moe

Moreover, all the graphics have become beautiful, and the degree of empathy has further deepened. Actually, I was playing the HD collection of PS3 version released in 2014, so at first I thought, “Although it is PS4, will it not change that much?” But just a few seconds after launching the game, I was really sorry when I saw the opening movie that played with B'z's song Hiroshi Inaba. Naturally, the sense of detail of the graphics has risen, and when walking in the rainy Kamuromachi, the reality seems to feel the smell of wet asphalt. Each scene is the same as the previous work, so it may be fun to play while comparing.

In addition to buildings and landscapes, the texture of human skin is too real. Many famous scenes such as confrontation with Nishiki are beautifully revived!

From top to bottom! Crazy dog ​​Majima attacks!

In the "Ryu ga Gotoku" series, a battle involving a story breaks out, and you can get involved with a chimp or yakuza just by walking in the city. Each time the series is repeated, the attacks become ridiculous, and the laughter rises so much that it is too merciless. In "Pole", such a battle system has been further evolved so that four styles can be switched freely. These are the orthodox “chimpira”, the “rush” that emphasizes speed, the power-type “breaker”, and the ultimate style “Dragon of Dojima”. Experience value accumulates as you fight, and you can enjoy growing elements such as RPG, such as increasing the skills that can be used in each style and increasing the maximum HP.

By spending the experience gained, the ability of each style can be strengthened. It is up to the player to decide from which to train

It is also possible to fight using signs and motorcycles on the street (but not "rush"). With the “Crusher” style, it will automatically grab nearby objects and swing around!

If you accumulate heat gauge by damaging enemies or using items, you can launch an intense attack "heat action". Just watching it hurts!

However, only “Dragon of Dojima” is special. Rather than assigning experience points, the skills that can be used increase by fighting with certain people. One of the biggest keys is Goro Mashima.

Speaking of Majima's older brother, the most popular crazy dog ​​in the series No.1! Anyway, I have a lot of blood, but on the other hand, I don't hate the fact that each time I repeat the series, it's called Ochame or strangely cute. In the "pole", such a Majima appears out of nowhere and is equipped with the "Everywhere Majima" system that challenges Kiryu. In addition to encountering a lot in the city, hiding in a huge pylon or car, showing a face with a leopard from a manhole, sticking to a glass window by reading at a convenience store, pole dancers and hostesses Hesitate to seduce you and do whatever you want. While I thought “I like Kiryu-chan”, I was worried that “I ’m lonely?” The stalker-bare persistence is frustrating at first, but you can't master the “Dragon of Dojima” style without repeated battles with Majima. One day, you'll find yourself looking for the shadow of a mad dog, "Brother, where …?"

Brother from the manhole Mashima is, hello. Even so, my brother, Nori nori

At first, “Dragon of Dojima”, which is weak and apt to be mottled. If you meet the conditions, you can also learn Mashima's actions

You can play, eat and browse! Explore the red light district, Kamurocho

The great attraction of the “Ryu ga Gotoku” series is Kamurocho, which was carefully created. If you have a local intuition, it will be even more fun to wander around the city. Moreover, you can actually play mini-games at play spots such as billiards, darts, bowling, arcades, and halls. There are also adorable play like CERO D (for those over 17 years old) such as the cabaret club and the too sexy card game "Insect Queen Mesking". In addition, you can eat at real shops such as Yoro Falls and PRONTO, and you can browse “Famitsu” and “Manga Goraku” at convenience stores, and there are lots of elements you want to detour around! The main story should be ridiculous and run around.

Just look at this gate and the tension will rise. Neon is calling Kiryu-chan tonight

"Insect Queen Mesking" fighting sexy insect fairies. Collect cards, build decks and defeat rivals! Or, I can only say that this kind of game is popular among children …

Speaking of "Dragon Gakuza", cabaret club! Can you spend a hot night if you nominate your favorite hostess and get along with conversations and gifts? Sense of immorality to go to Miss Kyaba, leaving the incident open

In addition, various sub-story occurs when walking in the city. There are some things that supplement the main story, but most are just episodes away from the main story. Kiryu became a match-selling girl (?), Kiryu, a detective, and an information shop's three uncles competed for the most important sluts, and there were many weak sub-story stories that were far from the serious story, This is a good chopstick rest.

When I walked with Haruka, I met a man who wanted to die. Of course we can't overlook!

My personal favorite is a sub-story of Shinichi Shinohara, a judo artist added in the “pole”. Shinohara himself plays that face and that physique completely. Moreover, it was a stick reading violently, and at first it was trembling with its too much acting ability, but for some reason it gradually became habitual, and finally, “Because there is no strange little play, it's refreshing! The same was true of the Devil's Magical Doo! ” You can enjoy exciting and funny episodes such as eating two cows, and you can also fight in the underground arena, so be sure to experience it.

Summary

In an old novel that I read before, there is a passage called “My Shinjuku-gai, an energetic new ground that seems to have gathered all the hormones of Tokyo,” and I was greatly confused by its hot air. For me, “Ryu ga Gotoku” is like this passage. The energy of Kamuro Town is transmitted to Bing, this excessive feeling is unbearable, and just running around the town raises the tension. If you like a world view like gleaming neon, an amusement district full of desires, the death battles of the Hans, a stubborn pole, it's definitely an addictive series.

Moreover, if it is “Pole”, graphics, stories and systems have evolved, so even those who have never played the series will enjoy it without resistance. In addition, series fans should come to the relationship between Kiryu and Nishikiyama by playing “Pole” again after “A place of vows like a dragon”. Furthermore, if you have the latest trial version “Ryu ga Gotoku 6”, which is scheduled to be released this fall, you won't be able to play. That's why I'm wandering around Ochoi Kamurocho!
