The information premiered final night time, as a part of the RGG Direct forward of Tokyo Sport Present 2023. In it, we received a fairly prolonged have a look at the story of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. No, critically, it’s 10 minutes lengthy. There are some main plot beats on this trailer. It’s a mini-film in its personal proper.
Alongside some surprising revelations concerning the state of longtime Yakuza protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, in addition to how Kasuga Ichiban winds up in Hawaii, we get a vital affirmation: that Infinite Wealth can have fairly a big forged.
Everyone’s right here in Infinite Wealth
I had initially nervous that, with the inclusion of Kiryu and the swap in perspective, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth may not see each member of Ichiban’s unique social gathering return. So I used to be fairly psyched to see the entire crew is again, after which some; Ichiban, Nanba, Adachi, Saeko, Joon-gi, and Zhao are all right here.
Seong-hui, the Geomijul chief who was not a celebration member in Like a Dragon 7, additionally seems to be to be becoming a member of the social gathering. There are additionally newcomers Tomizawa and Chitose, and we see some cutscene appearances of collection favorites like Taiga Saejima and, in fact, Goro Majima.
Critically, the Yakuza / Like a Dragon collection was already stuffed with shock cameos that made me bounce a bit in shock. However seeing all of this forged collectively, hanging out? Nanba giving sage recommendation to Kiryu? What seems to be like a celebration break up, as they every sort out their very own issues in two totally different places? I’m actually, critically invested in no matter is going on right here.
Wait your flip
Alongside the story trailer, we additionally received a massive have a look at gameplay for Infinite Wealth too. It’s sustaining the turn-based RPG battles from Yakuza: Like a Dragon, albeit with some new twists. Crucially, now you can management a personality’s motion on their flip, which is a large quality-of-life improve from the prior recreation.
The social gathering can execute particular Kiwami assaults and, in fact, Poundmates is right here to ship the ache by means of summon assaults.
And it wouldn’t be a Like a Dragon recreation with out minigames, proper? Ichiban can play his personal bike-powered of Loopy Taxi, or swipe on the apps in Miss Match, and even go on a photograph scavenger hunt. Plus, a wealth of leisure video games and arcade classics, with the trailer spotlighting Sega Bass Fishing and, in some way, SpikeOut.
All of this collectively makes Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth appear like a frankly huge follow-up to RGG’s new RPG department of the collection, and it’s not far off both. January 2024 is just some months away. Even nearer is November 9, when Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man And not using a Title goes reside, which can have a particular trial of Infinite Wealth. We’re actually not going to be hurting for yakuza motion within the coming months.
