Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a launch title for Xbox Series X
The upcoming action game will release on additional platforms
SEGA has announced that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be releasing as a launch title on the next-gen Xbox Series X. It will also be available as simultaneous release on the Xbox family of devices, including Xbox One X, Windows 10 PC, and PlayStation 4.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will support Xbox Series X Smart Delivery immediately on release, ensuring players only have to buy the game once and will be able to play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the console and that version of the game are available. Cross-save functionality between Xbox One and Xbox Series X is also supported.
The game introduces a new main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family. After serving an 18-year prison sentence, he returns to society to discover that the clan he once belonged to has been destroyed, its few remaining members are being hunted in the streets, and learns that his former patriarch may be the man responsible for it all.
Like a Dragon introduces a new dynamic RPG combat system that takes the genre somewhere it's never been before - present-day Japan.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is planned for launch in late 2020.
