Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is an action-adventure game developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and published by Sega.
It is a spinoff release in the Yakuza franchise, and is set between the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, with series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu returning as protagonist.
Ryu Ga Gotoku's upcoming side story and the acclaimed remake will be playable on Game Pass subscribers on Xbox and PC this year.
"Katatoki" is the theme for the upcoming action-adventure title, with American artist J.I.D. working with Radwimps' Yojiro Noda.

Sega and Atlus have unveiled their full lineup for Tokyo Game Show, which runs from September 21 to 24.
Completing the upcoming spin-off will unlock "special content like scenes not included in the main game," says RGG Studio's Masayoshi Yokoyama.
Players can indulge in classic activities like RC racing and Karaoke with new songs. You can also customize Kiryu with various clothes.
Kiryu works with Akame and her intelligence network to take on "risky requests" in the upcoming side story, launching on November 9th.
The developer recently took to Twitter to remind fans that the upcoming brawler will be "available for download" in November.
Working with the Daidoji Faction, Kiryu encounters a mysterious group that knows his true identity and must root them out.
As per a recent panel at Anime Expo 2023, the three characters (available with pre-orders) are seemingly playable in a separate mode.
The character was voiced in English by Darryl Kurylo in 2020's Yakuza: Like a Dragon, who also played the role in the original Yakuza game.
