Secret Agent Man! He might have left the Yakuza life behind, but Kazuma Kiryu hasn’t been sipping mai tais and living it up on some tropical island. In the upcoming title Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man who Erased his Name, find out how he was coaxed out of hiding and what led to his eventual return in Yakuza: Like a Dragon (it’s been nearly 3 years I think we can mention this “spoiler”)
Explore the streets of Sotenbori, and Yokohama. Crack some skulls with two fighting styles, one which harkens back to his previous life and new style which utilizes gadgetry never before seen in this franchise. While quite divergent, you’re still going to have the hallmarks of the series such as substories, karaoke, pocket car racing and enjoying late night entertainment!
The game will launch on November 9th and pre-orders are available on Steam, PlayStation Store and the Xbox Marketplace. Those who pre-order will receive the Legendary Fighter Pack, which will add 3 additional opponents to the fighting arena that fans of the series will be very familiar with, the unpredictable Goro Majima, the stoic Taiga Saejima and the sixth chairman of the Tojo clan, Daigo Dojima! If you don’t want to miss out on these fights and what rewards you’ll reap if you take these opponents down, I recommend you pre-order the game which will retail for $49.99!
