SEGA have announced that Yakuza: Like A Dragon will be launching on PS5 on March 2nd, 2021, a few months after the game launches on PC via Steam, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. To celebrate, there’s some new footage of the game running on PS5 that’s been posted to Twitter.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon, or Yakuza 7 if you prefer, is the next instalment of the long running franchise that also represents somewhat of a new beginning for the series. Replacing the usual main series protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, you play as Ichiban Kasuga as he tries to navigate an unfamiliar Japan after being betrayed by his mentor.
Like A Dragon also switches up the series’ trademark beat ’em up gameplay with RPG-turn based mechanics, with players forming a party of characters to take on the Japanese underworld. Players can even equip Ichiban with a variety of job roles to change his abilities in combat. You also get to have a fight with a mechanical digger, so that’s a thing.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon will be launching on November 10th as a day one launch title for the Xbox Series X/S, along with PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s weird that the PS5 version is being held back by four months, as it’s launching March 2nd, 2021.
In better news, the Xbox version will support Smart Delivery, meaning players who purchase the game for the Xbox One will be able to receive a free next-gen upgrade for the Xbox Series X/S. As for the PS4 users, buying the game digitally will ensure you’ll receive the next-gen upgrade on PS5. The PS5 version will also launch for $59.99 on PS5, if you’d rather wait.
