Sega have just announced Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be coming to Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X at Microsoft’s Inside Xbox presentation.
All footage was reportedly captured on Xbox Series X, but the title will support Smart Delivery (allowing users to buy the game on Xbox One, and being able to play it on Xbox Series X).
The PC release was already leaked on Steam, but the announcement is still a surprise considering the series had been a PlayStation exclusive for such a long time.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
You can find an abridged rundown (via the video description of the announcement trailer) below.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new main protagonist for the first time since the series’ inception over a decade ago — Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member looking to prove his self-worth, and follows him and his motley crew of unlikely allies as they attempt to rise from rags to riches in this modern human drama.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is much more than just a new chapter in the Yakuza series. Much like the new English title itself, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a complete reimagining of the franchise, a landmark to coincide with the series’ 15th anniversary. With the bulk of the game taking place in the large-scale, painstakingly-realized setting of Ijincho in Yokohama, players will explore an entirely new side of Japan never-before-seen in the series. Not only that, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s combat system has undergone a major overhaul, combining Yakuza’s established brawling action with a turn-based RPG battle system.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available in Japan on PlayStation 4, and Holiday 2020 on Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
