Yakuza: Like a Dragon will mark a new era for the long-running series. The game was announced during an Inside Xbox stream as one of many third-party games coming to Xbox Series X–but Sega has finally announced that the game is coming to PlayStation 5 as well. In addition, you’ll be able to play the new Yakuza adventure on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Sega has also announced Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be a launch title for the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4, and PC November 10 (the PS5 release date for Yakuza: Like a Dragon is March 2, 2021). Yakuza: Like a Dragon is up for preorder now if you want to secure your copy early.
Like a Dragon supports Xbox Smart Delivery, which means buying the game on Xbox One will get you the Series X version automatically. The game also has cross-save support, so if you start playing on Xbox One, your progress will transfer over to Series X. Sega announced a PS5 upgrade path is also planned for the Western release and will be announced at a later date, so if you preorder on PS4, you can count on having a PS5 copy as well.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the eighth mainline title in the Yakuza series and the first one that won’t follow Kazuma Kiryu as the protagonist. Instead, you’ll play as Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking yakuza grunt who goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit to make himself a hero in his clan–only to be released 18 years later and find that no one is waiting for him. Kasuga realizes he’s been betrayed by the man he trusted the most and sets off on a journey to discover the truth behind the behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back.
Sega announced Yakuza: Like a Dragon will feature English voice-overs for its worldwide release, with an English voice cast that includes actor George Takei as Masumi Arakawa, patriarch of the Arakawa Family.
Unlike previous games in the Yakuza series, which feature beat ’em up battle mechanics, Like a Dragon introduces turn-based RPG-style combat with a four-person team. However, you’ll still take on side quests and enjoy side activities like “Dragon Kart,” a Mario Kart-style racing game.
