SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio launched Yakuza: Like a Dragon on PlayStation 5, bringing new star Ichiban Kasuga and his eccentric team of outsiders to Sony’s next-gen. Owners of the PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free. Purchase options include three versions: Standard, Hero Edition and Legendary Hero Edition.
To celebrate the launch di Yakuza: Like a Dragon on PlayStation 5, all owners of this latest installment of the Yakuza series can download the Legends Costume Set DLC for free on all platforms until April 2. This costume set includes eight different player groups that pay homage to Yakuza’s fan-favorite characters, including Goro Majima’s elegant tuxedo, Kazuma Kiryu’s cool dress, Daigo Dojima’s streetwear, and more.
Subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese and Russian have also been added to the game, adding to the already solid set of localization options that include a full English vocal track (optional) and subtitles alongside the original Japanese track.
In Yakuza: Like a Dragon, players take on the role of Ichiban Kasuga (played by Kaiji Tang), a truth-hunting yakuza member, after being mysteriously betrayed by his clan, after voluntarily serving 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, to protect his patriarch and father figure, Masumi Arakawa (played by George Takei). Along the way, Ichiban meets a cast of quirky characters including rogue cop Adachi (played by Andrew Morgado), ex-nurse Nanba (played by Greg Chun), and Saeko (played by Elizabeth Maxwell), a flight attendant on a mission. Together, Ichiban and his crew must unite to become the heroes they never imagined they were.
As Ichiban, players will make their way through the city of Yokohama with an all-new, truly amazing turn-based RPG combat system. They will be able to experience various mini-games around the city, including kart races, arcades and karaoke.
