Yakuza: Like a Dragon lands in the West on November 13th this year. It'll arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with releases for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 to follow. Since Like a Dragon will be a launch title for the Series X, that means we can expect Microsoft's new console on or after November 13th.

What can we expect from Yakuza: Like a Dragon?

The seventh mainline instalment in the long-running Yakuza series will be switching things up a little. Kazuma Kiryu won't be returning as the protagonist in Like a Dragon; instead, the game will focus on Ichiban Kasuga, a member of the Tojo Clan's Arakawa Family. Kasuga is asked to go to prison on behalf of his clan, but when things don't quite go according to plan, he must set out to learn the reason for his predicament and the backstory behind his prison sentence. You can check out the new "How Will You Rise?" trailer for Yakuza: Like a Dragon right here:

In another break from tradition, Yakuza: Like a Dragon will move away from the brawler-style real-time combat of its predecessors. Instead, it'll feature turn-based combat, a change intended to illustrate Kasuga's obsession with role-playing franchise Dragon Quest. The new combat system will come complete with over 20 Jobs for Kasuga and his party members, each of which will change their abilities in battle. Of course, this being a Yakuza game, you can expect all the usual diversions and distractions, as well as the series' signature over-the-top visual style and involved crime narrative.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13th. A release for the PS5 and Xbox Series X will follow, with the Series X release coming in November and the PS5 version hitting sometime after that.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
