RGG Studio has announced an official Like a Dragon event in Japan, comprising a funeral service for characters who have passed away in the Like a Dragon series.
The first exhibition of the Like a Dragon series will be held at PARCO FACTORY (Ikebukuro PARCO main building, 7th floor) from December 30, 2023, to January 15, 2024. After Ikebukuro, the exhibition will travel to Nagoya and Sapporo at a later date.
The exhibition theme is In Memoriam of the Lost Men, focusing on characters who lost their lives in the Like a Dragon series. The exhibition continues with a funeral service and a cenotaph.
In the funeral hall zone, visitors can offer flowers, given at the entrance desk, to the image of a character of their choice. There will also be a number of original merchandise based on the theme, such as acrylic stands, and acrylic charms of the characters featured.
You can view more details about this strange event via Famitsu but note that spoilers are present for characters who have passed away in the Like a Dragon franchise.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch worldwide on January 26, 2024, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
The developer previously shared that “Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth delivers a one-of-a-kind RPG experience with combat boasting greater depth, quality of life refinements, and improved gameplay favoring speed and strategy. The playable party now has full freedom of movement while fighting, allowing you to strategically position yourself and your allies to take down foes more effectively.”
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth’s story centers around Ichiban Kasuga, who wakes up on a beach without clothes. Details of the narrative are currently scarce, but players can look forward to returning protagonists Ichiban and Kiryu being dual protagonists.
Further, the title will be turn-based like the previous mainline outing, Yakuza: Like a Dragon. The game will feature Dondoko Island, a locale where players can develop their own house and partake in several slice-of-life activities akin to a simulation title.
