Holy heck. Throughout tonight’s Sony State Of Play livestream, it was introduced that Like A Dragon: Ishin! was heading to the west for the primary time – and heading to PC on the identical time. The Yakuza spin-off set in 1860s Japan was first launched in 2014, and the remake is described as having been “rebuilt from the bottom up”. Watch the trailer beneath.
Set through the late Edo interval, Like A Dragon: Ishin!’s protagonist is actual historic samurai Sakamoto Ryōma. It in any other case follows an identical construction to different Yakuza video games, with melee fight (albeit with extra swordplay) in opposition to giant teams of goons being damaged up by exploring an open world city (albeit with much less pinball and fewer J-Pop idols).
With Ishin on the best way, and if indications of an imminent PC announcement for Judgment and Misplaced Judgment are true, I believe there are solely a handful of Yakuza issues not on PC. These embody Ishin! predecessor Ryū ga Gotoku Kenzan! and the rather more fascinating noncanonical zombie apocalypse spin-off from 2011, Yakuza: Useless Souls.
Builders Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are doing a livestream on September 14th, referred to as the RGG Summit, the place hopefully they will verify Judgment and present extra of Ishin. It’s going to be broadcast at 11am BST/12pm CEST/6am EST.
Like A Dragon: Ishin! will launch on PC by way of Steam in February 2023. It oddly wasn’t the one recreation set through the late Edo interval to be revealed throughout tonight’s State Of Play.
