Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have shared the launch trailer for the PlayStation 5 port of Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

The new launch trailer shows off the PS5 port for the latest in the Yakuza franchise, which is available today as a free upgrade to owners of the PS4 original (save data doesn’t carry over, however).

Here’s the launch trailer:

Here’s a rundown on the game, via its Steam page:


Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.

Ichiban sets out to discover the truth behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back, drawing a ragtag group of society’s outcasts to his side: Adachi, a rogue cop, Nanba, a homeless ex-nurse, and Saeko, a hostess on a mission. Together, they are drawn into a conflict brewing beneath the surface in Yokohama and must rise to become the heroes they never expected to be.


Experience dynamic RPG combat like none other. Switch between 19 unique Jobs ranging from Bodyguard to Musician, using the battlefield as your weapon. Take up bats, umbrellas, bikes, signs, and everything else at your disposal to clean up the streets!


When you’re not busy bashing heads, relax by hitting up the local arcade for some classic SEGA games, compete with locals in a no holds barred go-kart race around Yokohama, complete 50 unique substories, or just take in the scenery of a modern-day Japanese city. There’s always something new around the corner.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available on Windows PC (via the Microsoft Store, and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S.
