You know my name
Taking place before, during, and just after the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the intriguingly titled Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name tells us all about what Kazuma Kiryu was up to in that time — and it's fair to say he was busy. But before we dig into the details, it's important to note that in its latter...
If you dare
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name has been warmly received on PS5 and PS4, but there’s been controversy surrounding its English dub. While most fans generally prefer to play the franchise with subtitles anyway, SEGA has found success adding English voiceovers to the series in recent years, making the franchise more...
Your very own Funeral of Fists
If you're considering taking a trip to Japan in the coming months and have strong and unresolved feelings about the fate of characters from across Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio's Yakuza / Like a Dragon franchises, then boy, do we have the cultural event for Kir-you. Beware of SPOILERS below. Reported by Japanese-language...
Dubbed, not snubbed
Much to the disappointment of weirdos who play Like a Dragon games with English voices (we're just joking!), Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name didn't feature an English dub option when it released last month. However, developer RGG Studio was quick to promise that English voicework would be added via a post-launch...
The glorious return of Kazuma Kiryu
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name has been out for a week now on PS5 and PS4. The intriguing return of Kazuma Kiryu seems to have gone down especially well with fans of SEGA's series, and so we're interested in knowing what you think of this shorter, arguably more focused Like a Dragon title. We...
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is a mouthful, a hell of a title hailing from a series known for confusing naming conventions, made worse since the Yakuza franchise rebranded as Like a Dragon in the West. It's so confusing that even developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio appears to have gotten mixed up in its latest game and...
Out now on PS5 and PS4, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is yet another chapter in the (ongoing) saga of Kazuma Kiryu. Taking place before, during, and after the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, it's all about what uncle Kaz was up to as Ichiban and his party did battle with corrupt politicians. We really enjoyed this...
Are you new here?
Now look, we know that asking people to play through seven Yakuza / Like a Dragon games just to get the full story is taking the p*ss, but there is something quite funny about SEGA trying to summarise the incredibly colourful life of longtime protagonist Kazuma Kiryu in a trailer that lasts 1 minute and 35 seconds. We can see...
Was made in six months
RGG Studio has shared in a new interview that next week's PS5, PS4 game Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name originally started out as DLC for the next mainline entry Infinite Wealth. Speaking to Automaton, it is revealed by director Masayoshi Yokoyama that Kiryu's latest story began life as DLC, but since the...
It's coming post-release
Those who fell in love with the Yakuza series during the PS3 era will be familiar with playing the games in Japanese, but newcomers may have become accustomed to English voiceovers. If you’re intending to play the upcoming Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name with a dub, however, you may want to sit tight for...
The Yakuza classic
File this one under 'Sh*t We Love to See': the man behind Kazuma Kiryu's Japanese voice got up on stage at Tokyo Game Show and performed a live cover of Baka Mitai. Takaya Kuroda, who's been voicing Kiryu since the PS2 days of Yakuza, put in a belter of a performance which appeared to have just about everyone up on their feet and...
ERASE YOUR PAST TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE
Once a legendary yakuza, Kazuma Kiryu faked his own death and abandoned his name for the sake of protecting his family. Now, he is thrust into conflict by a mysterious figure attempting to drive him out of hiding.
Under the codename “Joryu,” Kiryu embarks on a gripping action narrative with bone-shattering combat in vibrant locations filled with exciting characters and activities.
ULTIMATE COMBAT WITH TWO HIGH-IMPACT FIGHTING STYLES
Dynamically switch between the Yakuza and Agent fighting styles in visceral melee combat.
With the Yakuza style, strike fear into enemies by unleashing wildly aggressive moves powered by Kiryu’s unparalleled strength and flair.
Or up the ante with the Agent style by delivering blows with absolute speed and precision, while using an array of high-tech gadgets like electrified bind wires to stun enemies then send them flying.
Strategically adapt to the situation and leverage both styles to dominate and destroy hordes of enemies.
Whether you're brawling in the secret Battle arena, singing a new karaoke song, enjoying a drink at the live-action cabaret club, or racing in the pocket circuit, the world offers a variety of immersive experiences.
An intriguing informant named Akame also provides thrilling sub-missions, drawing you into an epic showdown that unfolds the more you explore and enjoy Sotenbori and Yokohama.
LIKE A DRAGON: INFINITE WEALTH SPECIAL TRIAL VERSION ALSO INCLUDED!
After completing Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name game, a Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth Special Trial Version will be unlocked for you to enjoy!
