Cosplay Wednesday – Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s Ichiban Kasuga

The Yakuza series is on fire as of late – previous entries have made their way to the Xbox One and PC, Yakuza: Like a Dragon shook up the formula last year (you can read our review of that here), and Judgment is making its way to the PlayStation 5. In honor of this series, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a cosplay of the latest protagonist of the series, Ichiban Kasuga.

With more than 100 cosplays under their belt, pumkinportfolio turned their sights to Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s Ichiban Kasuga with this stunning cosplay. In the future, they are planning to do more of Ichiban’s different job outfits – we’re especially looking forward to seeing his other renditions.
