Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, the team behind the popular and long-running Yakuza franchise, revealed yesterday that it is remaking Like A Dragon: Ishin and releasing it for the first time in the West next year. That reveal trailer looked great, but it was short and sweet.
Now RGG has released a new “Ambush” trailer that showcases over five minutes of Like A Dragon: Ishin, giving us a better idea of this upcoming Yakuza spin-off. Like A Dragon: Ishin was first released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in 2014, but never came out in the West. This new release rebuilds Like A Dragon: Ishin from the ground up, and you can see how awesome it looks in the trailer below:
Like A Dragon: Ishin is set in the late Edo period of Japan, in the 1860s. After completing his special sword training, Sakamoto Ryoma returns to his home in Tosa, where he finds a conflict with a prestigious samurai. You can read more about it in our story here.
Like A Dragon: Ishin is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in February.
