The Quest Begins in Yakuza: Like a Dragon With New Trailer


Ahead of Ichiban Kasuga’s quest kicking off stateside on November 10, SEGA has released a new trailer for Yakuza: Like a Dragon that shows this protagonist’s videogame-like journey in action.

Set in the underworld playground of Yokohama, players will experience minigames like batting cages, kart racing, SEGA arcades, vocational school tests, and even the ability to be a business mogul and manage your own company.

To go alongside this news, SEGA announced that a number of karaoke songs will feature a number of English renditions in its karaoke mode. Hits include Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool – of “Dame Da Ne” meme fame), Hell Stew, Like a Butterfly, Machine Gun Kiss, Spring Breeze, and The Future I Dreamed Of.

See these minigames and listen to this music with the video below:

Voice actors that have lent their talents to the title include George Takei, Kaiji Tang, Andrew Morgado, Greg Chun and Elizabeth Maxwell.
