Yakuza: Like A Dragon Looks Like It's Coming To PC
The next Yakuza game has popped up in Steam database, meaning that the upcoming PlayStation 4 title might make its way to PCs.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon has only officially been announced for PlayStation 4, but evidence has emerged suggesting that it will get a PC release, too. The game has received a listing on Steam Database, a third-party site that collects data about games on Steam, and will occasionally reveal a PC release of a game before it's officially announced.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon, the seventh game in the mainline Yakuza series, will introduce turn-based battles and a new playable character (Kasuga Ichiban--read all about him here). It looks like an interesting departure from what has come before.
While Yakuza is a series that has long been associated with PlayStation, the games have recently started to make their way to PC and Xbox One, too. So far, Yakuza 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2 have made their way to Steam; it's unknown whether 3-6 will make their way to the platform. Since Like A Dragon features a new protagonist, it could serve as an entry point for new fans.
This does not absolutely confirm that the new Yakuza is coming to PC, but it seems likely.
There's also been some suggestion that Yakuza: Like A Dragon will get an English dub, unlike most games in the series. The Japanese version, which released in January 2020, has already been updated with a new difficulty option and new game plus mode.
A western release date for Yakuza: Like A Dragon has not been set yet, but it's expected this year.
