Yakuza 8 Is Called Like A Dragon 8 And Kiryu Is Back Alongside Ichiban
- Yakuza: Like A Dragon 8 is the eighth mainline installment in the popular and long-running Yakuza franchise.
- It is a direct sequel to 2020's Yakuza: Like A Dragon, which starred a new protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, and turn-based RPG mechanics rather than brawler combat.
- The former protagonist of Yakuza, Kazuma Kiryu, is back as the protagonist in Like A Dragon 8.
- Ichiban tells Kiryu it's Hero time before the trailer cuts to both of their faces, revealing that some time has passed, with both characters looking at least a little older than when we last saw them.
- Like A Dragon 8 is due out PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime in 2024.
