Step back into the shoes of Kazuma Kiryu as the former Dragon of Dojima returns to the stage in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, releasing later this year for consoles and PC. You can check out the newest trailer from the Summer Games Showcase above.
From developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios:
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name follows the story of Kazuma Kiryu, operating under the codename “Joryu.” Once a legendary yakuza, he faked his own death and abandoned his name for the sake of protecting his family. Now, he is thrust into conflict by a mysterious figure attempting to drive him out of hiding. Thrilling sub-missions will draw you into an epic showdown that unfolds the more you explore and enjoy Sotenbori and Yokohama.
ERASE YOUR PAST TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE: Embark on a gripping action narrative with bone-shattering combat in vibrant locations filled with exciting characters and activities.
ULTIMATE COMBAT WITH TWO HIGH-IMPACT FIGHTING STYLES: Dynamically switch between the Yakuza and Agent fighting styles in visceral melee combat. With the Yakuza style, strike fear into enemies by unleashing wildly aggressive moves powered by Kiryu’s unparalleled strength and flair. Or up the ante with the Agent style by delivering blows with absolute speed and precision, while using an array of high-tech gadgets like electrified bind wires to stun enemies then send them flying.
ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENT: Whether you’re brawling in the secret Battle Arena, singing a new karaoke song, enjoying a drink at the live-action cabaret club, or racing in the pocket circuit, the world offers a variety of immersive experiences.
Players who pre-order the game will receive the Legendary Fighter Pack, which introduces the following legendary yakuza to square off against in the Battle Arena:
- Goro Majima – The Mad Dog of Shimano
- Taiga Saejima – The Slayer of Eighteen
- Daigo Dojima – 6th Chairman of the Tojo Clan
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will release on Nov. 9, 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
