Yakuza: Like A Dragon: More Than Fighting [VIDEO]

Ryu Ga Gotoku’s RPG-ified game doesn’t force you to just bash the faces of the opponents turn in, turn out (as yes, the game is turn-based).

„In the trailer, the down-and-out Yakuza scrapper, Ichiban Kasuga, describes his video game-esque heroic journey that will take him through an amazing array of minigames in a veritable underworld playground. Yokohama features a plethora of fun and hilarious distractions, including kart racing, batting cages, Sega arcades, high-octane vocational school tests, and the ability to manage and grow your own company! Ichiban and his ragtag crew of friends have endless fun activities to engage with as they try to restore justice to the streets of Yokohama.

That’s not all, though; the end of „The Quest Begins” features a special surprise. For the first time in the series’ history, Yakuza: Like a Dragon features English renditions of fans’ most beloved karaoke songs from previous entries in the series, as well as several brand-new songs. The full list of English-voiced karaoke songs includes Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool), Hell Stew, Like a Butterfly, Machine Gun Kiss, Spring Breeze, and The Future I Dreamed Of,” SEGA’s overview of the trailer says. Video game-esque heroic journey? It looks like the game is breaking the fourth wall here. Also, it’s surprising to see something kept from the original Japanese version (localization tends to cut content).

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which launched in Japan in December on PlayStation 4 (with the number 7 in its title no less) is out on November 10 on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (Steam, Microsoft Store). The PlayStation 5 version follows on March 2, possibly because Microsoft paid SEGA for timed exclusivity. So until then, you can only get the Xbox version in the next-gen.
