Apparently, SEGA wants the game to be a success in the West, just like it is in Japan. In addition to supporting multiple languages in subtitles, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the first game in the series to be fully dubbed in English.
Originally, the studio launched the game for the PS4 in the Japanese country. The game represents a major transformation in the franchise, which will be starring Ichiban Kasuga, instead of Kazuma Kirya. In addition, turn-based gameplay has been adopted for this chapter of the RPG.
PS5 version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be released on March 2nd
It is worth remembering that the title will receive a PS5 version on March 2nd – already subtitled in PT-BR . Users who purchase the PS4 version will be able to make a “free upgrade” to the PlayStation 5. In the new generation, the game has fast loading and improved resolution and textures.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon was released in the West on November 10 for PS4 , Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
