Next Mainline Yakuza Game Like A Dragon 8 Announced, Releasing In 2024


The RGG Summit 2022 revealed a bunch of new and upcoming games from the Yakuza series, now known as the Like A Dragon series, to match its Japanese name.

One of the big reveals is Like A Dragon 8, the next mainline Like A Dragon game starring Ichiban Kasuga, and the sequel to the 2020’s Yakuza Like A Dragon.

It’s a short teaser, but it confirms Kasuga is back and alongside him is series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu. Though Kiryu looks starkly different, especially that new hair. The two are seen walking through the streets of Kamurocho with Kasuga.

Like A Dragon 8 will continue to have turn-based JRPG gameplay, as introduced in Yakuza Like A Dragon.

For fans of the traditional beat-em-up brawler fighting the series is known for, there are two more games that feature that. Like A Dragon: Ishin! and Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name are releasing in 2023.

Like A Dragon 8 isn’t coming out soon. It’s targeting a release in 2024 for the PS4, PS5, PC (Steam, Microsoft Store), Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
