Role-playing video game Yakuza: Like a Dragon was created by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and released by Sega. On January 16, 2020, the PlayStation 4 version of the Yakuza franchise’s first core turn-based RPG was made available in Japan and Asia. On November 10, 2020, the game’s western release for the PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S includes additional outfits, the English audio track, and certain previously purchased DLC.
On February 25, 2021, this version then was launched for Windows and Xbox in Asia under the title International[b]. On March 2, 2021, the game’s PlayStation 5 version was made available globally, and on December 10, 2021, an Amazon Luna edition of the game went on sale.
Like a Dragon offers a new protagonist called Ichiban Kasuga as opposed to earlier Yakuza games that centered on the life of Kazuma Kiryu, a man attempting to lead a regular life after quitting the yakuza lifestyle. Ichiban embarks on a personal mission to transform into a “hero” and learn the cause for his betrayal with his friends after spending 18 years in jail only to be deceived by his old employer. Both gamers and reviewers gave Yakuza: Like a Dragon favorable feedback, praising the story, characters, gameplay, original approach to the JRPG subgenre, and presentation.

The Yakuza moniker was last used in a video game outside of Japan Like a Dragon, which is also the first game to utilize the Japanese title globally (albeit as a subtitle). Two games are scheduled to come out after it: Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Wiped away His Name, a side table, in 2023, and Like a Dragon 8, the next mainstream game, in 2024.

Three years have passed since the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life when the game is set in 2019. The emphasis departs from Tokyo or the game’s fictitious reproduction of Kabukich, known as Kamuroch, for the initial time in the Yakuza series. Instead, the IsezakiIjincho district of Yokohama, which is modeled after that city’s Isezakich district, is where the majority of the gameplay takes place.
But the game also includes Kamuroch and Sotenbori, a region from earlier Yakuza games that was modeled by the Dtonbori neighborhood in real life. Yokohama’s criminal underworld is made up of three interrelated groups known as the “Ijin Three”: the local yakuza group, the Seiryu Clan, the Korean Japanese Geomijul Mafia, and the Chinese-Japanese gang, Yokohama Liang.
