Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have released a new trailer and screenshots for Yakuza: Like a Dragon dubbed, “The Quest Begins.”

Here is an overview of the trailer, via Sega:

In the trailer, the down-and-out Yakuza scrapper, Ichiban Kasuga, describes his video game-esque heroic journey that will take him through an amazing array of minigames in a veritable underworld playground. Yokohama features a plethora of fun and hilarious distractions, including kart racing, batting cages, Sega arcades, high-octane vocational school tests, and the ability to manage and grow your own company! Ichiban and his ragtag crew of friends have endless fun activities to engage with as they try to restore justice to the streets of Yokohama.

That’s not all, though; the end of “The Quest Begins” features a special surprise. For the first time in the series’ history, Yakuza: Like a Dragon features English renditions of fans’ most beloved karaoke songs from previous entries in the series, as well as several brand-new songs.

The full list of English-voiced karaoke songs includes:

  • “Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool)”
  • “Hell Stew”
  • “Like a Butterfly”
  • “Machine Gun Kiss”
  • “Spring Breeze”
  • “The Future I Dreamed Of”

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is due out for Xbox Series platforms, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store on November 10 in the west, followed by PlayStation 5 on March 2, 2021. It first launched for PlayStation 4 in December 2019 in Japan.
