Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth on PS5, PS4 Is Pokémon As Well Now 1

Not content with aping Animal Crossing in its off-the-wall island building minigame, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will also add a Pokémon-inspired experience to its ever-expanding list of things to do. Sujimon, as its known, will see you collecting eclectic characters from all around Hawaii, and training them to create the ultimate team. Your goal is to dethrone the existing champions of the Sujimon battle world: the Discreet Four and the Sujimon Master.

Confirmation comes courtesy of a press release, as translated by Gematsu. “As you progress through the Sujimon battle storyline, a new job, Sujimancer, will be unlocked,” the announcement explains. “Once you become a Sujimancer, you’ll be able to equip your Sujimon and summon them into actual combat. The stronger your Sujimon are, the more powerful your Sujimancer skills will be.”

Sujimon can be acquired after battle or via an in-game gacha system, although no real-world currency will be involved here. Battles are three-on-three affairs, with each Sujimon having a unique affinity. You’ll need to mix and match these to build the ultimate team. As your Sujimon get stronger, they may even evolve – is any of this sounding familiar yet? One unique feature is that you can take your Sujimon back to the aforementioned Dondoko Island, where they can train and help you make money.

So yeah, remember when SEGA said this is the biggest Yakuza game ever? It really wasn’t messing about!
