Here’s a brand new “overview” trailer for a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, which is set to launch on 9th November 2023, for PC, P4/5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
To celebrate the game being available to the public at next week’s Gamescom 2023 show, Sega has treated us to a 10-minute overview trailer and developer update, which you can check out below:
The trailer gives a little insight into the title’s “gripping story” featuring the legendary ex-yakuza Kazuma “Joryu” Kiryu, “bone-crushing combat, mini-games (did someone say karaoke?) and other exciting experiences”.
Sega also confirmed that if you buy Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, you’ll also get a “special trial version” of the upcoming eighth mainline entry in RGG’s ongoing underworld saga, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, when it releases in early 2024.
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name – which was announced at the Ryu Ga Gotoku Summit last September – follows the story of former gangster Kiryu Kazuma from the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life up until Like a Dragon 8.
Gaiden will be a smaller-scale game than the main entries into the Yakuza series, and will return to the action-adventure brawling gameplay of earlier games rather than the RPG combat of Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Pre-order now, and you’ll get access to the Legendary Fighter Pack featuring Goro Majima, Taiga Saejima, and Daigo Dojima as playable characters in the Coliseum battle arena mode.
