Yakuza Crosses Over into Rainbow Six Siege This Week; Kiryu & Kaoru Skins

Developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios has announced that Yakuza will be crossing over into Rainbow Six Siege 2 days from now, May 24, 2022. Characters Echo and Hibana will receive Kazuma Kiryu and Kaoru Sayama skins, respectively. Since these are cosmetics, no gameplay alterations will be added, but this is still quite a wild occurrence regardless. We’ll keep you updated on further updates regarding this unexpected crossover.

The Yakuza franchise was recently announced to have sold over 2.9 million units during the last fiscal year.

The tweet initially announcing this bizarre crossover is viewable below via the official Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios Twitter account :

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the seventh entry in the Yakuza series and stars actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai, who lend their appearances and voices to the game’s prominent cast members along with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game’s main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon stars a brand new protagonist for the first time since the series began, Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member trying to make it in the world. His story will lead him to form a crew of unlikely allies as he attempts to follow his dreams from rags to riches.
