Yakuza: Like a Dragon Launching Stateside November 13


Releasing with the next generation of videogame hardware, SEGA announced that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will arrive stateside on November 13, 2020.

This dynamic RPG will bring an adventure that takes the intense brawls the Yakuza series is known for and combines it with classic RPG elements. As players venture through the Yokohama district of Isezaki Ijincho, they will utilize such elements as party customization, strategic moves,and a wide variety of skills.

The latest trailer for the game, which can be seen below, puts the spotlight on the protagonist Ichiban Kasuga. Fighting alongside Nanba, Saeko, and Adachi, Kasuga will be able to utilize more than 20 unique Jobs as he envisions himself as the lead character in a turn-based RPG. Nearby surrounding items can be used to attack enemies, and party members can also kick surrounding items to their target.
