Guns…we’re gonna need guns and more in the latest Like a Dragon: Ishin trailer!

*yeah he technically did in Kiwami 1 during the highway sequence and in the non-canonical Of the Dead side title?but he?s not exactly popping off all the time.

Way before honorable Yakuza Kazuma Kiryu roamed the streets of Kamurocho, Sakamoto Ryoma left his mark during the Bakumatsu Era in ancient Japan. While Kamurocho might be rough, Edo Japan wasn?t exactly a peaceful place either, so thankfully Ryoma has the skills to keep himself above the fray. In a new trailer for the upcoming Like a Dragon: Ishin!, we get a glimpse of what combat skills and techniques the ronin from Tosa seeks to avenge the murder of his adoptive father has to offer.

Slash (Swordsman), shoot (Gunman), go unarmed (Brawler) or even a combination of the first two (Wild Dancer) as you take settle things in the most violent way possible. For those who think this ancient tale will be a dry affair, rest assured it will be packed with as many side activities and quirkiness its modern siblings have to offer.

The game is currently available for pre-order and for those who opt for the Digital Deluxe version, they?ll get to play on February 17th, 2023 four days before the release date as well as a bundle of DLC which includes.

    • Shinsengumi Captain?s Set
    • Ryoma Growth Support Kit
    • Sword Upgrade Materials Kit
