Like a dragon: they were Welcoming the new era with Sakamoto Ryoma, who is finally going global as he would have liked in February 2023.
Welcome everyone! Today is a very special day. Not only for RGG Studio, the masterminds behind Yakuza: Like a Dragon, but for all of our fans around the world who have been eagerly awaiting the legendary lost chapter from the creators of Like a Dragonseries.. We’ve read your Twitter comments, seen your fan content, and are so excited to announce that the action-packed samurai title of the legend, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, will be launched globally in February 2023.
The hero of Japanese history finishes the samurai
Like a Dragon: Ishin is a historical thriller and adventure uniquely set in Kyo in the 1860s, a fictional version of Kyoto. While other games tell past stories in Japanese history, Ishin lets you experience the story of the disappearance of the famous samurai era. Our hero, Sakamoto Ryoma, is a true historical figure who is largely credited with overthrowing the shogunate and taking Japan through a process of radical reform.
Like a Dragon: Ishin brings familiar faces to tell this epic historical tale. Fans will recognize our hero as Kazuma Kiryu from previous entries in the franchise. In Ishin, Kiryu is cast as Sakamoto Ryoma and brings in the rest of his crew as well. Goro Majima and other Yakuza celebrities join Ryoma as friends and foes in this fantasy world that trades the garish streets of Tokyo for the chaotic hustle of Kyo in the 1860s. These new character dynamics are as exciting as they are unexpected, with a series of incredible twists and turns in a story that only RGG could tell.
Four deadly combat styles and stabilization thermal actions
In Ishin, you can slash enemies with a deadly blade using Swordsman style or shoot your enemies with a pistol using Gunman style. Better yet, use it Both A gun and a sword and get into a rage in Wild Dancer style. And when you feel extra brutal, crush some skulls with your bare fists using Brawler style.
but that is not all. It wouldn’t be an RGG Studio title without amazingly silly thermal routines. Summon a tiger to crush your enemies, shove pickled plums down your enemies’ throats, and use a full cannon to blast your opponents. Ishin’s thermal actions will leave you itching to reveal new moves at each stage of the game.
On Unreal Engine 4 for the first time
Like a Dragon: Ishin is the first RGG studio title to be built on Unreal Engine 4, providing stunning graphic quality to Like a Dragonfranchise. Development on Unreal Engine 4 unlocked new textures and other graphic details that make Ishin’s thrilling story one of the most cinematic in RGG history.
