Like a Dragon: Ishin will be released in the West in part thanks to the release of Sony’s Ghost of Tsushima.
Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama says so. “We saw how well Ghost of Tsushima did and how this was a very Japanese setting made by Americans. That gave us the assurance that Ishin could do well in America too.”
An older version of Like A Dragon: Ishin was released in Japan in 2014 under the name Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin. The game never came out in the West, although this remake will change that.
Like A Dragon: Ishin will be available worldwide on February 21, 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, Steam, and Microsoft Store. Two more Yakuza games were revealed this week. The game formerly known as Yakuza 8 will be called Like a Dragon 8, and there will also be a spin-off called Like a Dragon Gaiden.
