SEGA has announced that Yakuza: Like a Dragon is officially out today. The game is currently available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and PC via Windows 10 or Steam. SEGA states that a Smart Delivery path is available for Xbox Series X|S if you get the game on Xbox One. It will also be available on PS5, but not until March 2021. Yakuza: Like A Dragon is the latest entry in the long-running Yakuza series. This new series title stars a brand new protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, and is a turn-based RPG rather than the usual beat ’em up style of past Yakuza games. Feel free to check out the launch trailer down below and read some more about the game. You’ll also find a list from SEGA of the various editions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon which are available for you to purchase.
In Yakuza: Like a Dragon, players take on the role of Ichiban Kasuga (played by Kaiji Tang), a rough around the edges member of the yakuza who is on the hunt for the truth after being mysteriously betrayed by his clan after voluntarily serving an 18-year prison sentence for a crime he did not commit in order to protect his patriarch and father-figure, Masumi Arakawa (played by George Takei).
Along the way, Ichiban meets a rag-tag cast of characters including rogue cop Adachi (played by Andrew Morgado), ex-nurse Nanba (played by Greg Chun) and Saeko (played by Elizabeth Maxwell), a hostess on a mission. Together, Ichiban and his crew must rise together to become the heroes they never anticipated becoming.
As Ichiban, players will battle their way through the city of Yokohama with an all-new turn-based RPG combat system for some truly amazing fights. Various mini-games can also be experienced around the city, including kart racing, batting cages, arcades and karaoke. To complete the sensory experience, Shonan No Kaze & Yasutaka Nakata have teamed up to create ‘Ichibanka’, the theme song for Yakuza: Like a Dragon for players to fully immerse themselves.
