Following today’s main launch news.
Now Microsoft has actually officially revealed Xbox Series X and S’ 10th November arrival, publishers are lastly totally free to put dates to the video games pertaining to Microsoft’s next-gen consoles; and now Sega, which had actually formerly devoted to launching Yakuza: Like a Dragon as a Series X launch title, has actually seized the day to validate that suggests a 10th November release.
As for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC variations of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which Sega slapped with a 13th November release date last month, the publisher hasn’t suggested their formerly revealed launches have actually altered in spite of today’s news (although I’m looking for even more information), suggesting they might still get here a little after Xbox Series X and S.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon must make an exceptional edition to Xbox Series X and S’ launch day line-up, having actually currently amassed lots of appreciation on its initial Japanese release at the start of the year. While the series’ familiar mix of police procedural and comical after-school activities stays undamaged for this newest instalment, there are huge modifications to the formula, going far beyond its brand-new lead character Ichiban Kasuga and its brand-new Kamurocho setting.
Most considerably, Like a Dragon trades previous Yakuza entries’ meaty beat-’em up action for a turn-based battle system comparable to that of an RPG. And if you’re questioning how that affects the experience, GamingOverpowered factor Malindy Hetfield was happily amazed when she checked out the Japanese release previously this year.
With launch dates now provided for Yakuza: Like a Dragon on Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, there’s just news of the PS5 variation to go, and Sega states it will have “more release details on all platforms in the coming weeks”.
