Like a Dragon: Ishin! is the next version of the popular Yakuza series. However, this game will take place in the late Edo era.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a spin-off version of the Yakuza series for PS4 and PS5 that will be released in 2023. Previously, the game was called Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin, but now it has been re-localized as Like a Dragon. In 2014, the game was also released for PS3 and PS4, although Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin was only released in the Japanese market. The 2014 version is set in Kyoto in the 1800s, and players will follow a samurai inspired by a real samurai named Sakamoto Ryoma.
Also corrected by this strange context, many fans have asked the question Like a Dragon: Ishin is really a spinoff of the Yakuza? This is also completely understandable when a series of games set in modern Japan suddenly goes back to the 1800s. Indeed, Like a Dragon: Ishin has caused a lot of misunderstandings for fans of the series. Today’s Tin Game channel will help you troubleshoot questions about this game!
Like a Dragon: Ishin! and known things
Like a Dragon: Ishin lets you experience the story of the era of the Samurai. Our heroic samurai who is also the main character in this game, Sakamoto Ryoma, is a real historical figure, largely credited with overthrowing the shogunate and bringing Japan into a war radical reform
No more appearance of Yakuza
Yakuza is already a brand that is too familiar to us, the original of the game originated in Japan with the name Ryu Ga Gotoku, which is translated into English as “Like a Dragon”. Recently, SEGA has announced the release of 3 new versions of this Like a Dragon series. It seems, the Yakuza brand will completely disappear and make room for the name Like a Dragon.
The developer side said, Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a great opportunity to bring the Yakuza back to its original brand. In essence, the name Yakuza is a localized name to suit the tastes of players around the world. However, the Yakuza is also ingrained in everyone’s mind, which also explains why many people wonder about Ishin’s background in this series.
Why Like a Dragon: Ishin! A great opportunity to bring the Yakuza back to its original brand? Simply because the game’s setting is in the 1800s, in fact there was no Yakuza at that time. In terms of the nature of the game series, the Yakuza is more about the criminal forces in Japan than talking about the Yakuza directly. Therefore, if the game continues to be called Yakuza: Ishin, it will not make sense because there is no Yakuza appearance in this part of the game.
Features of the game series
Initially Ryu Ga Gotoku approached the international market through the name Yakuza on the PS2 platform. At the time, the game was labeled as “GTA in Japan” but the game was still a heavy disappointment to players of that time. However, the Yakuza also attracted players through Yakuza 0 shortly after.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! will still retain the usual combat mechanics of this series. For those who do not know, the fighting criterion in the Yakuza is simply having hands and eyes. In other words, players will have to take advantage of weapons and attacks to create eye-catching combos. And if in the context of Like a Dragon: Ishin, we will see the beautiful katana slashing and the samurai spirit of a Japanese samurai.
In addition, the developer also said that the melee action with Katana in the game will be very diverse, in order to honor the beauty of the samurai, but the development team will create opportunities for players to fight according to their needs. This style is more.” Surely Like A Dragon: Ishin will satisfy hardcore Yakuza fans when experiencing with a completely new perspective and plot.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! will be released to the general public
In recent shares from the developer of Like a Dragon: Ishin said the game will be widely released in the international market, especially the Western market. Initially the game was judged to be unable to succeed in the US market. However, the success of Ghost of Tsushima encouraged them to release Like a Dragon: Ishin! all around the world.
In fact, SEGA initially assessed that Like a Dragon: Ishin would “die” if it appeared in the US market despite being highly appreciated in terms of plot and gameplay. The original reason is that gamers around the world will have little interest in a game that is heavy on Japanese history and culture.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! will be released on February 21st next year and available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
