Sega is set to revive the popular Yakuza series, also known as Like a Dragon, with the release of Like a Dragon 8 on November 9th, 2023. However, the company has also revealed a separate title that continues the story of the series’ beloved protagonist from the first six games, Kiryu Kazuma, albeit without his original name.
The upcoming game, titled Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, brings Kiryu back to the gritty and reflective streets of Japan after he fakes his own death. Leaks suggest that the game will feature two distinct fighting styles, including “agent” techniques that incorporate gadgets and evoke memories of Link’s Ultrahand, which is considered by many as one of the best games of 2023. The game might also draw inspiration from Spider-Man, promising a delightful dose of silliness.
Like a Dragon Gaiden appears to be a classic brawler, and it is scheduled for release on November 9th, 2023. If you’re craving RPG-style gangster adventures, you’ll have to patiently wait for the release of Like a Dragon 8 next year.
