Developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and publisher Sega have released a new video for the upcoming Like a Dragon: Ishin!, featuring a discussion with voice actor Riki Takeuchi.

The video features a discussion between studio director Masayoshi Yokoyama and Takeuchi, where the talk about the actor’s return to the franchise after eight years—since his work in Yakuza 0.

The two also talk about Takeuchi’s work in film and anime, and go on to talk about the new character in Like a Dragon: Ishin!—Takeda Kanryusai.

Like a Dragon: Ishin! is slated for release on February 21. The game will be coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
