Over the last five years, there has been a huge boom in popularity for the Yakuza series, putting the franchise in a healthy position in the western market. As a result, SEGA has invested extra money into the latest game in the series, Yakuza: Like A Dragon, bringing the first English dub option to the franchise in 15 years.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon previously released in Japan back in January for the PlayStation 4. However, the game will be making its way to the rest of the world, complete with an English dub in November, just in time for the release of next-gen consoles. This week, a new trailer for the game dropped, showing off all the combat classes available:
As we can hear in the trailer, this also gives us a small feel for the English voice acting. Yakuza: Like A Dragon also features 20 different ‘Jobs’, each with their own unique finishing moves for combat, as well as other abilities.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon is releasing outside of Japan on the 13th of November for PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game will then be made available on Xbox Series X at launch, with a PS5 release date set to be announced later on.

KitGuru Says: Yakuza: Like A Dragon is very different to other games in the series, with completely new gameplay systems and combat, shifting it from an action game to a turn-based RPG. Are any of you planning on picking this one up later this year?
