SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are happy to announce that the latest entry in the RGG / Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Japanese title – Ryu Ga Gotoku 7) is releasing in Japan on January 16, 2020, for the PlayStation®4, with a Western launch planned for 2020. Actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai will be lending their appearances and voices to the game’s main cast members, with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game’s main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new main protagonist for the first time since the series’ inception over a decade ago — Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member looking to prove his self-worth, and follows him and his motley crew of unlikely allies as they attempt to rise from rags to riches in this modern human drama.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is much more than just a new chapter in the Yakuza series. Much like the new English title itself, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a complete reimagining of the franchise, a landmark to coincide with the series’ 15th anniversary. With the bulk of the game taking place in the large-scale, painstakingly-realized setting of Ijincho in Yokohama, players will explore an entirely new side of Japan never-before-seen in the series. Not only that, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s combat system has undergone a major overhaul, combining Yakuza’s established brawling action with a turn-based RPG battle system.

Thats some tasty noodles….Reply
I have to buy this only because of how wrong they did Ichi. And I never played a Yukuza game.Reply
So they are keeping the Japanese name of the series for the overseas release of Yakuza 7??? INTERESTING!Reply
I guess that’s a unique way to differ this game from the other 6 Yakuza games.
Spider webs are shapeless?Reply
Right now it is the greatest time ever to be a ps4 ownerReply
Finally some trailers for the westReply
I’m extremely skeptical of the game. Story looks fantastic as usual, but the turnbased combat is a big yeesh for me. Not a fan unless it gives you a fair amount of choices like Bravely/Octopath. Really hope the combat can still make the bosses exciting.Reply
YO HIS TATTOOReply
strategy gameplay in Yakuza game feels really weird…but hey its Yakuza series..what could go wrongReply
this is how the creators see the worldReply
He wore the same suit for 18 years and did not appear to age one bit? yep he’s definitely kiryu’s successor alright.Reply

This looks awesome Sega but please!!!!!!! bring the Yakuza Samurai games to the west!!! Thanks!!!!!Reply
-> Wears inverted Kiryu suit.Reply
-> Has Nishiki’s voice actor.
*I am content with this man.*
Trailer wasn’t great but I am excited for the game all the same. Story and characters already look pretty interesting so all the game has to do is live up to its predecessors and we gonna have another masterpiece boys.Reply
An ex-inmate gangster, undercover police, a hobo, & a vengeful widow form a party. THIS WILL BE THE PEAK OF “YAKUZA QUEST” LOLReply
18 years passed and the guy looks the exact same lolReply
Turn-Base Yakuza Game. Not clicking that idea but the story look cool.Reply
They should give us the option for english voiceover.Reply
Like a dragon is the translated Japanese title for the Yakuza series,Sega basically went full Capcom.Reply
I hope we have the optional to swap back his short hair cut lolReply
Turn based? Welp, I’m done with this series. Ends at 6 as far as I’m concerned.Reply
This is a big change but i cant waitReply
Yakuza Like a Dragon is just a perfect name to a new game on the series is a shame that they can’t call ryu ga gotoku yakuza in japanReply
Please tell us that hair is customizable….Reply
i hope we don’t have to wait too much for the western release, its coming out in january for japan so hopefully we get it in may or june.Reply
Never played a Yakuza game in my life, although I’ve played my fair share of games. The fans’ praise about the series is what caught my attention.Reply
More PS3 graphics nice isn’t this a new game smhReply
Bring back Spiderman to The MCU!!Reply
This looks very promising 🙂 cant wait for this refreshing storyReply
*flips table and cries*Reply
So is this game named ryu ga gotoku: ryu ga gotoku in japan?Reply
Heh eh. Awesome.Reply
