Sega and Ryu Ga Gotako have revealed that Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch on January 26, 2024. The story follows both current series protagonist Ichiban Kasuga and former protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
Ichiban goes on a journey to Hawaii to find his mother, who he was separated from when he was younger. Additionally, Kiryu makes the shattering announcement that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
With the limited time he has left, Kiryu wants to make amends for his past being part of the Yakuza. As his strength weakens, Kiryu realizes he has to work together with Ichiban, as apparently every other local gang in Hawaii is after his mother as well.
The game’s newest trailer is absolutely bonkers as it shows Kiryu and Ichiban facing off against a myriad of different threats, including a giant shark and giant squid.
The next game in the series, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased his Name, is set to release on November 9, 2023. It takes place between the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. It will also include a special trial version of Infinite Wealth with scenes that are not set to be in the main game itself. The trial will be available to play after completing Gaiden’s story.
The end of January and the beginning of February 2024 are already piling up on big Japanese game releases, as Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch on the same day as Tekken 8. It’s also a week out from Persona 3 Reload and Granblue Fantasy: Relink, with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth due at the end of February.
