Next Monday (September 28, 2020), Sega announced that the game Yakuza: Like a Dragon has received a new release date.
The game will arrive 3 days ahead of its scheduled debut, for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and Steam platforms on November 10, 2020. Therefore, the game will be released on the same day as the next generation Xbox Series console.
It was also revealed that the game will be released later on Playstation 5 on March 2, 2021. Users who purchase the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version can still upgrade to the next generation console version for free.
We also remember that the game was originally released in Japan on January 16, 2020 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
Remember, this new game has undergone several changes, the biggest of which is the change of the protagonist. We will stop following the adventures of Kazuma Kiryu and continue to Ichiban Kasuga, a member of the Arakawa family, one of the families affiliated with the Tojo clan.
Besides the new location where most of the plot will take place, another aspect of the battle was drastically changed. Contrary to the already known fluid combat, we will have “RPG combat for commands in real time”. In this all-new combat system, Ichiban Kasuga and his companions will engage in immersive and dynamic battles against all types of enemies, using different techniques of attack, recovery, support and more.
Last week it was announced that Sega, in collaboration with 1212 Entertainment and Wild Sheep Content, is producing a live action film based on the Yakuza franchise.
As the popularity of the franchise grows, many are wondering where to begin the story of the famous yakuza Kiryu Kazuma. The game’s story starts with the Yakuza kiwami (remake of 1), but most fans agree that Yakuza 0 is the best game to start the franchise as this is a prologue to the former.
