yakuza: like a dragon

Publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have announced the western release dates for the current-generation versions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, as well as its PS5 version.

The Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of the game are coming on November 10th, alongside the previously announced Windows 10 (via the Microsoft Store) and Xbox Series X release date. The PlayStation 5 release is set for March 2nd, 2021.

If you pick up the PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon you’ll get a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version entirely free, for both digital and physical copies of the game. The PlayStation 5 version will not get the $10 price bump like some other next-gen titles.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


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.
