Sega has announced a new game by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios. Titled Like a Dragon: Ishin!, the game is essentially a remake of a Yakuza spin-off originally released on PS3 and PS4. Check out the trailer below.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! is set to be a complete remake of the original Ryu Ga Gotoku: Ishin!. According to a post on the official PlayStation Blog, Like a Dragon: Ishin! will be making use of Unreal Engine 4, unlike games like Yakuza 6, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Judgement, and Lost Judgement, which used the Dragon Engine.
Like a Dragon: Ishin!, while starring many of the most notable characters from the Yakuza franchise, instead takes place in an alternate setting. The game is set during the chaotic Bakumatsu phase of Japan’s Late Edo Period in the 1860s, and will tell the story of the end of the samurais and the shogunate.
The game puts players in the shoes of Ryoma Sakamoto who is out for revenge after the murder of his mentor and father figure. Sakamoto goes undercover, using the name Saito Hajime, and infiltrates the police force of the time—the Shinsengumi.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! is slated for release in February 2023.
