Yakuza: Like a Dragon Gets a New Trailer and Current-Gen Release Date

SEGA has revealed a brand new trailer for Yakuza: Like a Dragon, showing off more of the RPG action and gameplay, while announcing a November release date.

November 13th. That’s when gamers will be able to get their hands on the next Yakuza game, Like a Dragon for the current generation platforms (it will also be an Xbox Series X launch title and coming to PS5 at some point). The news comes this morning alongside a gameplay filled trailer for fans to enjoy:

An experience like no other, Yakuza: Like a Dragon brings dynamic RPG gameplay to the streets of Yokohama, Japan, with an adventure that combines the intense brawls that the Yakuza series has been known for, with the strategic depths, party customization, and massive variety of skills that you’d expect from a classic RPG.

In less than 2 minutes, the new How Will You Rise? trailer takes players on a journey through the streets of Yokohama, Japan, the new setting for Yakuza: Like a Dragon. In the video, we see Ichiban Kasuga, the first main new protagonist in the history of the mainline Yakuza series, alongside some of his loyal party members, Nanba, Saeko, and Adachi, as they swap between just a few of the 20+ unique Jobs available throughout the game. In what can only be described as a meta worldview, Ichiban envisions himself the lead character in an RPG and his ensuing skirmishes take on the form of turn-based battles. If you’ve ever wanted to don a chef’s hat and sprinkle enemies with a dash of pepper to finish them off in style, we’re happy to say that no game other than Yakuza: Like a Dragon will offer you that experience.

Will you be picking up Yakuza: Like a Dragon this November?
