Sega clarified that those who purchase the physical PS4 disk of Yakuza: Like a Dragon will still get a PS5 upgrade at no additional cost.
The clarification came after the wording of the announcement (including the press release) of the PS5 release date of the game seemed to indicate that only digital copies would receive the upgrade.
Turns out that if you buy the PS4 disk, you’ll still be able to upgrade to the PS5 version, so you won’t be left out.
That being said, we also hear that save data won’t transfer between PS4 and PS5.
You can read the official tweet below.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch in the west for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One Series S/X, and PC via Steam November 10, 2020. The PS5 version will release later, on March 2, 2021.
