Unlike previous Yakuza series games that focus on Kiryu Kazuma’s escapades, Like a Dragon: Ishin sees players take on the role of Sakamoto Ryoma, a legendary historical figure credited with overthrowing the shogunate and bringing reformation to Japan.

The game takes place in 1860s Kyo, a fictionalized version of Kyoto. It’s here where players will get to see their favorite characters, Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro, make an appearance in the feudal setting. 

Like a Dragon: Ishin gameplay

Like a Dragon: Ishin features the same over-the-top action as previous titles, but with an added twist. Instead of simply brawling your way through the city streets of Kyo with the Brawler style, players can purely focus on utilizing melee and ranged weapons. 

The Swordsman style sees Sakamoto Ryoma cleave through waves of enemies, while the Gunman style equips a deadly revolver for ranged combat. If both the styles above don’t take your fancy, then the Wild Dancer style enables players to wield a gun and sword.

So, there you have it, that’s everything we know about Like a Dragon: Ishin. Make sure you check out our other game release date hubs for all the latest news and updates.
