Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch for Xbox Series platforms on November 10, publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announced.
Sega previously announced that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store on November 13, and for PlayStation 5 at a later date. However, Sega’s messaging today reads, “Yakuza: Like a Dragon will also launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows 10, and PlayStation 5. Please stay tuned for more release information on all platforms in the coming weeks.” When asked if those versions are still due out on November 13, a Sega representative would only refer to the quoted text. This is also despite the Xbox One and Xbox Series versions of the game being part of the same physical edition SKU, which would imply a simultaneous release.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Rise Like a Dragon
Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-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.
