Those looking for more information about Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will want to mark their calendars for Sept. 19, as SEGA has announced a RGG Like a Dragon Direct for that day.
The stream, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s first dedicated Western broadcast, promises to share “the latest news, trailers, and more” for aforementioned titles and will serve as the dev team’s counterpart to the RGG Summit airing from Japan. It will air on SEGA’s Twitch and YouTube channels at 9 p.m. PT on Sept. 19.
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is just a few months from release, hitting Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on Nov. 9. We have less information, however, about Infinite Wealth, the eighth mainline installment in the Yakuza series. RGG Studio announced in a previous stream that it would be releasing in early 2024.
Previously, we caught up with Like a Dragon series producer Hiroyuki Sakamoto at gamescom to talk about Like a Dragon Gaiden, a spinoff that still bridges the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Infinite Wealth. There, Sakamoto talked about the decision to bring back Kiryu as a protagonist, saying that was always the plan despite the events of Yakuza 6: Song of Life and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
It marks a busy week for direct announcements, with Nintendo announcing a Direct and PlayStation revealing a State of Play for tomorrow as well.
