Sega released Yakuza: Like a Dragon on Xbox Series, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC today and to celebrate they have the brand-new launch trailer for your viewing pleasure.
The trailer is probably one of the best I’ve seen this year and it’s set to the song “Here Comes the Hotstepper” by Ini Kamoze. Yakuza: Like a Dragon will also be coming to the PlayStation 5 on March 2, 2021. Give that trailer a watch below and stay tuned for our final review on the game.
In Yakuza: Like a Dragon, players take on the role of Ichiban Kasuga (played by Kaiji Tang), a rough around the edges member of the yakuza who is on the hunt for the truth after being mysteriously betrayed by his clan after voluntarily serving an 18-year prison sentence for a crime he did not commit in order to protect his patriarch and father-figure, Masumi Arakawa (played by George Takei).
Along the way, Ichiban meets a rag-tag cast of characters including rogue cop Adachi (played by Andrew Morgado), ex-nurse Nanba (played by Greg Chun) and Saeko (played by Elizabeth Maxwell), a hostess on a mission. Together, Ichiban and his crew must rise together to become the heroes they never anticipated becoming.
As Ichiban, players will battle their way through the city of Yokohama with an all-new turn-based RPG combat system for some truly amazing fights. Various mini-games can also be experienced around the city, including kart racing, batting cages, arcades and karaoke. To complete the sensory experience, Shonan No Kaze & Yasutaka Nakata have teamed up to create “Ichibanka,” the theme song for Yakuza: Like a Dragon for players to fully immerse themselves.
