Yakuza: Like A Dragon Pre-Order Info (Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4, And PC)

The newest Yakuza game will release in the West later this year on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Comments

Microsoft's latest Inside Xbox stream revealed a slew of third-party games coming to its next-generation console, Xbox Series X. Among them is Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which is now confirmed to release on Series X as well as Xbox One, PS4, and PC later this year (it released in Japan back in January). While we don't have a set release date for Yakuza: Like a Dragon yet, we know it will be a launch title for Xbox Series X, and it's available to pre-order now if you want to secure your copy early.

Like a Dragon supports Xbox Smart Delivery, which means buying the game on Xbox One will get you the Series X version automatically. The game also has cross-save support, so if you start playing on Xbox One, your progress will transfer over to Series X.

While Yakuza has traditionally been a PlayStation-exclusive series, there's been no official mention of a PS5 version just yet.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the eighth mainline title in the Yakuza series and the first one that won't follow Kazuma Kiryu as the protagonist. Instead, you'll play as Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking yakuza grunt who goes to prison for a crime he didn't commit to make himself a hero in his clan--only to be released 18 years later and find that no one is waiting for him. Kasuga realizes he's been betrayed by the man he trusted the most and sets off on a journey to discover the truth behind the behind his family's betrayal and take his life back.

Unlike previous games in the Yakuza series, which feature beat 'em up battle mechanics, Like a Dragon introduces turn-based RPG-style combat with a four-person team. However, you'll still take on side quests and enjoy side activities like "Dragon Kart," a Mario Kart-style racing game. Check out our full Yakuza: Like a Dragon preview for more information on what to expect from the game.

Below, we've rounded up everywhere you can currently pre-order Yakuza: Like a Dragon. So far, the only available edition is the Day One Edition.
