[SGF-2023] Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name: Agent Joryu Reports [VIDEO]

A familiar character under a pseudonym, as an agent in a franchise spinoff… even if it’s not all that familiar at first.


Don’t forget that SEGA has renamed the Yakuza franchise, so the series continues under Like A Dragon. The name Gaiden in the game’s title references it as a side story. Still, the character you control will be familiar, appearing in most previous installments. Here’s the game’s overview by SEGA: “Once a legendary yakuza, Kazuma Kiryu faked his 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.

Under the codename “Joryu,” Kiryu embarks on a gripping action narrative with bone-shattering combat in vibrant locations filled with exciting characters and activities. 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 and then send them flying. Strategically adapt to the situation and leverage both styles to dominate and destroy hordes of enemies. Whether you’re brawling in the secret Castle 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. An intriguing informant named Akame also provides thrilling sub-missions, drawing you into an epic showdown that unfolds the more you explore and enjoy Sotenbori, Yokohama, and the mysterious Castle.”

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will be released on November 9 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Microsoft Store, guaranteed to have Denuvo), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The price is $50. Pre-ordering nets you the Legendary Fighter Pack, allowing you to fight Daigo Dojima, Goro Majima, and Taiga Saejima.
