Ishin’s new trailer, “Like a Dragon,” introduces the plot

The latest teaser for Like A Dragon: Ishin exposes fans to the Yakuza spinoff’s tale, introducing players to the main character Ryoma Sakamoto and his quest to revenge his master. Sega initially showed the game last September, announcing a full-fledged remake of the spinoff that debuted in 2014. The original release was the final major Yakuza game before the release of Yakuza 0, which saw the series surge in popularity. A new video introduces the narrative of the samurai spinoff.

Several important disclosures about Like A Dragon: Ishin has occurred in the months building up to its release. Sega has announced that various popular mini-games, including card games, chicken race betting, and even the karaoke mini-game featuring a fresh arrangement of series mainstay “Baka Mitai,” will return in Ishin. With the game set in Bakumatsu-era Japan, Ishin also includes new components such as a farming and cookery mini-game. Sega is getting fans psyched about the narrative of Ishin less than a month before the game’s release.

A new teaser published Monday morning introduces players to Ryoma Sakamoto, the primary protagonist of Ishin, who works as a samurai under the Tosa clan. After Ryoma’s mentor is assassinated by an unknown assassin, he joins the Shinsengumi to find his master’s murderer and exact revenge. The primary cast of Like a Dragon: Ishin includes various characters that have the likeness of fan-favourite characters such as Goro Majima and Haruka Sawamura. The spinoff also has the same voice actors as the original characters.



Ishin will depict the universe of Like a Dragon in a very different setting than earlier games in the series. The present setting of the main series Like a Dragon game has been replaced by Japan in the latter years of the samurai period. Many of these changes are mirrored in the gameplay, with mini-games taking the shape of traditional card games like Koi-Koi and Poker rather than arcades as in earlier titles. With the remake, Ishin will also keep the “card-based fight system” from the original.

Like a Dragon: Ishin’s announcement last year was accompanied by two more big disclosures for the franchise’s future. Like a Dragon Gaiden, a spinoff slated to appear in 2023, will chronicle Kiryu’s travels throughout the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Sega would also disclose the next major entry in the series, Like a Dragon 8, with a release date of 2024 scheduled. Fans of Like a Dragon will have a lot to look forward to in the next year, with various spinoffs and a main-series game.
