Yakuza: Like A Dragon Is Coming To Xbox Series X At Launch With Smart Delivery
Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the all-new saga in the long-running series, is coming to Microsoft's next-gen console.
The lineup of games coming to Xbox Series X is beginning to come into focus, and among them is the latest game in the Yakuza series. As part of Microsoft's new Xbox 20/20 and Inside Xbox stream, the company revealed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon (commonly referred to as Yakuza 7) will release on Xbox Series X--and it'll be a launch title, no less.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon launched in Japan earlier this year and has already been confirmed for PlayStation 4, but you can now expect to be available on Xbox platforms. Sega will offer Smart Delivery support, so buying the Xbox One version will entitle you to a free copy of the Series X version. Cross-save support will be offered, so you'll be able to carry over any progress you make on Xbox One to Series X, should you be eager to get started.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon may be the next in Sega and Ryu ga Gotoku's storied franchise but it's a fresh start for all players. With the Kazuma Kiryu's story wrapped up, you'll now step into the shoes of Kasuga Ichiban, a former Yakuza member who comes back from jail to find that his gang abandoned him.
While the series has traditionally been a high-octane action game, Like A Dragon takes a turn for turn-based RPG gameplay. You can expect a higher level of absurdist humor and gripping melodrama that that Yakuza is known for. We have a detailed breakdown of Yakuza: Like A Dragon based on preview content from the Japanese version; check it out if you want more on the game.
Yakuza has been primarily a PlayStation franchise but it has been making its way to PC, and also to Xbox One with Yakuza 0 now available on the platform and Xbox Game Pass.
We don't yet have an exact release date for Yakuza: Like a Dragon on Xbox Series X, as the system itself is still without a precise launch day beyond "Holiday 2020." But with the confirmation of the game's appearance on the console, you can start making plans for what you'll spend your time playing on day one.
