Kicking off Comic-Con @ Home, Sega of America launched Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s new “Heroes of Tomorrow” Trailer, which showcases the explosive, dynamic RPG gameplay of protagonist Ichiban Kasuga and his ragtag party. Ever want to see a group of middle-aged “heroes” battle massive construction vehicles, take down thugs with an uppercut from a facial wand or summon a tempest of pigeons? Yakuza: Like a Dragon has you covered – it’s like no other RPG before it.
Also revealed in today’s announcement is the English voice cast of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which features, among many talented actors, esteemed TV and film actor George Takei. George Takei plays the role of Masumi Arakawa, a powerful patriarch whose dissolution of the Tojo Clan’s yakuza empire sets into motion the conflict at the heart of this complex, winding narrative. Yakuza : Like a Dragon will also feature full EFIGS subtitle support.
The Yakuza: Like a Dragon “Heroes of Tomorrow” Trailer is now live – check it out to see and hear the talented English cast in action, as well as details on the new pre-order editions available now.
SEGA also announced today that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch on PlayStation 5 in the West, in addition to the previously announced Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This offer comes in addition to the previously announced support for Xbox Series X Smart Delivery, ensuring players only have to buy the game once, and will be able to play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the console and that version of the game are available. A PlayStation 5 upgrade path is also being planned for the Western release and will be announced at a later date.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be available in the West on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in November 2020 (Xbox Series X will release on day one of the console’s release date, and the PlayStation 5 version will release at a later date). The previously announced Day One Edition will now be called the Day Ichi (“one” in Japanese) Edition.
