Well, it looks like Yakuza: Like a Dragon's recently leaked Western release date was indeed accurate. Today, Sega and developers Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have confirmed that Like a Dragon will launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Microsoft and Steam) on November 13, 2020.
This lines up with the date that was first shown on the Microsoft Store last month. As for the next-gen versions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, it will be available for Xbox Series X in November on day one of the console's release, currently just set for sometime in the month of November, and the PlayStation 5 version will come "at a later date."
Accompanying today's release date news, there's also a new trailer showcasing Like a Dragon's many jobs, which change up the way Ichiban Kasuga and his party members approach combat. From bashing folks over the head with guitars as a musician to... well, simply brandishing a gun during roulette as a casino dealer, it's a good look at how Yakuza's beloved eccentricities are weaved into the new turn-based RPG combat.
My personal favorite? The breaker moves, which seem to imply that wearing a bucket hat is a prerequisite for unleashing powerful, supercharged kicks on Ichiban's foes. Why not?
For folks hoping to carry on the Yakuza story with their next-gen system of choice but who aren't sure they'll be getting a new console right away, it's worth remembering that both the Xbox One and PS4 versions will have upgrade paths. On Xbox, Like a Dragon will support Microsoft's Smart Delivery. Sega promises details on the PlayStation upgrade will come later, presumably once we're closer to the PS5 version's launch.
