Here's a surprise announcement for you: Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is a brand new Yakuza title from RGG Studio. It takes place between Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and explains what happened to Kazuma Kiryu.

It's being described as a slightly shorter experience. Bigger than the Lost Judgment expansion, The Kaito Files, but smaller than a standard Yakuza title overall. It's an action game, meaning that it'll utilise the series' traditional action combat, and it's coming to both PS5 and PS4 in 2023.

In part, Like a Dragon Gaiden is meant to introduce new players to Kazuma Kiryu, who will play a major role in Like a Dragon 8, which is scheduled for 2024.

Are you ready for the return of Kiryu? We mean, er, Joryu? Leave your identity behind in the comments section below.
