Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Shares Video Interview with Chief Producer; No Plans for Other Gaiden Side Stories

Ahead of the launch of Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, Sega and RGG Studio have shared a video interview with RGG Studio Chief Producer Hiroyuki Sakamoto.

This entry’s premise, focus on Kiryu, and the inspiration for his becoming an agent are all explored. Sakamoto also said that there aren’t any plans for Gaiden games exploring other Like a Dragon characters, but it’s a possibility they’ll think about in the future.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name features two fighting styles where players can 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. This entry will also fill in the gap of why Kiryu appeared in the seventh mainline entry and set the stage for Like a Dragon Infinite Wealth.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will feature a special trial version of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.
