Sega announced via IGN that the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios developed action RPG Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch on PlayStation 5 alongside the other platforms.
The game was initially confirmed as an Xbox Series X launch title, but will now also be coming to Sony’s new platform. The game will also feature a free upgrade feature where owners of the Xbox One version can upgrade to the Series X version for free. Sega has shared with IGN that a “PlayStation 5 upgrade path is also being planned for the Western release.”
The next-gen version of the game will retain a $60 retail price in the west, which has been the topic of many discussions about the future price of new-gen consoles. The game will also feature an English dub option.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon, will be the seventh entry in the Yakuza series, and will star actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai who will be lending their appearances and voices to the game’s main cast members along with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game’s main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.
