Yakuza: three games announced with a cult character that will drive fans crazy

Fans of the Yakuza franchise are going to be abuzz after all these announcements. SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have revealed the existence of three separate projects.

Ryu Ga Gotoku, the Yakuza studio, is on fire! In a special broadcast, the developers were able to uncover their secret work.

Yakuza 8 turned into Like a Dragon 8

We will see it with other titles, but the license abandons its cult name for “Like a Dragon”. Yakuza 8 is therefore called Like a Dragon 8. Ichiban Kasuga, the protagonist of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, will be back with a cult character from the license: Kazuma Kiryu. The latter has a new haircut, which is apparently justified, and has his own band.

Ryu Ga Gotoku announces that it is already the most ambitious episode of the series. But be patient because the release will not take place before the beginning of 2024. The turn-based RPG mechanics will be taken over, but that was already done.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name

Before this eighth numbered opus, SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku will release Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. A spin-off that takes place between Yakuza 6 and 8 which will focus on the fate of Kazuma Kiryu between these two parts. It’s going to be a more classic action-adventure title, not a turn-based RPG, and it won’t be as massive as a normal episode. It will still be an important trip made for the fans of the first hour.

The release is planned for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC (SteamMicrosoft Store) in 2023.

A release date for Yakuza Like a Dragon: Ishin

After the announcement trailer, Like a Dragon: Ishin, the remake of Yakuza Ishin, unveils a long video. With, as usual, an exquisite atmosphere. Moreover, Like a Dragon: Ishin is no longer expected for a vague “2023” but for the February 21, 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC (SteamMicrosoft Store).
