Like a Dragon 8 Announced, Kiryu Kazuma Returns

Wednesday, September 14th, 2022

Like a Dragon 8 has been formally revealed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio for an early 2024 release. It will follow the turn-based RPG action of Yakuza: Like a Dragon but will feature 2 protagonists in the form of Ichiban Kasuga and a returning Kiryu Kazama, now looking particularly more aged since his last appearance in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

The Yakuza name has been officially dropped in Western territories, with the much more literal ‘Like a Dragon’ now being the franchise name going forward. The same applies to Like a Dragon: Ishin! and Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name which was also revealed today.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Launches on PS5 Alongside Free PS4-to-PS5 Upgrade

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021

The PS5 version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon lands today! This version of the title offers 4K resolution support as well as a locked 60fps framerate. Loads times should also be dramatically reduced across the board.

PS4 owners can now also upgrade to the PS5 version free of charge. Simply navigate to the game’s page on the PS5 dashboard and select “Upgrade” on the right-hand side of the screen. Unfortunately, saves cannot be transferred from PS4 to PS5, so a new game will have to be started from scratch.

Persona 5 Royal Launches West on March 31st 2020 for PS4, Atlus USA Rebrand as Atlus West

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

Persona 5 Royal, the updated version of Atlus’ hit RPG Persona 5, now has a release date for both America and Europe – it’ll launch on March 31st 2020, exclusively for Playstation 4. There’s also a new trailer to announce it.

Royal adds a slew of new content to the original game, such as an extra ‘semester’ of story content, new areas to visit, alternate endings, and new features including a ‘Thieves Den’ that you can customise to your own tastes. There’s also several brand-new characters, including the new Phantom Thief, Kasumi.

In addition, Atlus USA is technically no more. Instead the division is now known as the much more inclusive Atlus West, to reflect that Europe now gets Atlus games on time. After years of Atlus being the butt of jokes about forgetting Europe exists, it’s been quite the transformation this past year or two, and we’re happy to see it continue.

To recap: Persona 5 Royal launches on PS4 on March 31st 2020 in the West. There won’t be a PS3 version, unlike the original game. There’s also a selection of lucrative (and fairly expensive) limited editions, including a Day One edition with a Steelbook.
