Sega and Yakuza developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are making a remake Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin!now named Like a dragon: Ishin!for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. The spinoff of the Yakuza series will be released in February 2023, Sega announced during Sony’s State of Play presentation in September.
The trailer for Like a dragon: Ishin! set the stage for the newly revamped game, which will be available to players outside of Japan for the first time since its release in 2014. The game is set in Japan’s Bakumatsu period and mainly focuses on a samurai, Sakamoto Ryoma, who was previously out for revenge “Spark[ing] the greatest revolution in Japanese history,” according to the trailer. Everything takes place in Kyo, a fictional Kyoto.
Yakuza character Kazuma Kiryu will appear as Sakamoto Ryoma, RGG Studio said on PlayStation Blog. It went on:
Like a dragon: Ishin brings familiar faces to tell this epic historical story. Fans will recognize our protagonist as Kazuma Kiryu from previous entries in the franchise. In Ishin, Kiryu is cast as Sakamoto Ryoma, bringing the rest of his crew with him as well. Goro Majima and other yakuza celebrities join Ryoma as friends and foes in this fictional world that trades the flashy streets of Tokyo for the chaotic bustle of 1860s Kyo. These new character dynamics are as exciting as they are unexpected, with a series of mind-blowing twists and turns in a story only RGG Studio can tell.
For gameplay, of course, there are swords, but there is also a gun. “Better yet, wield both a gun and a sword and throw yourself into a frenzy with Wild Dancer style,” wrote David Hinds, Sega of America Global Community Manager, on PlayStation Blog. “And if you’re feeling particularly brutal, smash some skulls with your bare fists brawler style.”
Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin! was originally released on February 22, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Since Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin!Since Yakuza’s release in 2014, the Yakuza franchise based on it has enjoyed widespread popularity outside of Japan – and it makes sense to bring more games from its suite of titles to the current generation of consoles. The latest release in the Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a dragonwas released in 2020.
