Yakuza: Like a Dragon

It’s the dawn of a new Era in the Yakuza franchise as Sega finally released Yakuza: Like a Dragon in the west.

Western gamers will finally get to experience the adventures of Ichiban Kasuga, brand new hero for the franchise, stepping in the rather challenging shoes that Kazuma Kiryu used to wear.

The game also sports a brand new genre, with JRPG gameplay that first debuted as April Fool and then turned out to be true in what’s arguably the best troll of the history of video games.

You can check out the launch trailer below.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is now available in the west for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One Series S/X, and PC via Steam. The PS5 version will release later, on March 2, 2021.
