Sega announced that the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios developed action RPG Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on November 10, with a PlayStation 5 release revealed to be March 2, 2021.
Players who purchase the PS4 version of the game can upgrade to the PS5 at no extra cost. The standalone version will launch for $59.99. This is a surprising turn of events as the series has mainly been PlayStation dominate in the west, but we are now seeing it come first to Microsoft’s next-gen platform.
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 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, who is 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.
