Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the next game in the long-running crime/bike-throwing series, and the first of the post-Kiryu era, has been out in Japan since January. We finally got a Western release date today though, with the game due on most systems in November.


That’s Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and, best of all, PC (previous PC releases have been massively delayed), along with the Xbox Series X and PS5. But only Microsoft’s next-gen version will be out alongside the console’s launch, with IGN announcing that the PS5 version will be releasing, “at a later date”.

Alongside the standard Japanese audio, Like a Dragon will also have an English dub that’ll feature George Takei.

Genuinely happy the series has gotten it’s western audience back to a place that warrants an actual english dub....but god, please I hope they keep the Japanese dub in the game as an option
