by Sage Ashford
SEGA and RGG Studio have revealed another new trailer for Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the seventh entry in the mainline Yakuza universe. Featuring a brand-new English dub cast which includes actors Kaiji Tang as protagonist Kasuga Ichiban and George Takei as Masumi Arakawa, this is the first time a Yakuza game has been dubbed since the original game’s release over a decade ago. SEGA also offered a look into Yakuza: Like A Dragon‘s story:
Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an eighteen-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.
Ichiban sets out to discover the truth behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back, drawing a ragtag group of society’s outcasts to his side: Adachi, a rogue cop, Nanba, a homeless ex-nurse, and Saeko, a hostess on a mission. Together, they are drawn into a conflict brewing beneath the surface in Yokohama and must rise to become the heroes they never expected to be.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon will release sometime in November, available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4. A PS5 version will release at a later date.
