All Character Cameos in Like a Dragon Ishin
Where have I seen them before…
Like a Dragon Ishin offers one of the more interesting experiences available in the Ryu Ga Gotoku library of games, and not just because it’s set in the past. Most every key member of its cast is a well-known character filling a new role, albeit with the same general personality they’d have in a typical Yakuza title. Keeping track of every single one that pops up can be a challenge though, which is why we’ve created this guide covering all the character cameos in Like a Dragon Ishin for your easy access.
All Characters and Main Series Counterparts in Like a Dragon Ishin
It should be noted that while Like a Dragon Ishin is a remaster of the 2014 title of the same name, it has some notable changes in terms of its characters.
Several key figures in the story have been completely remodeled and revoiced using characters from Yakuza 0, Yakuza 6, and Yakuza 7. Likewise, characters from Yakuza 0 have been inserted into Like a Dragon Ishin for the first time via side missions and new content. As a result, characters from Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 who once made cameos are no longer present.
We’ve listed each character that appears down below along with the name of the character from the main series who fills their role.
