Announced back in September during a Sony State of Play presentation, Like a Dragon: Ishin is a remake of a Yakuza spin-off title previously unavailable in western markets.

It takes place during the final years of the Edo period when the Tokugawa shogunate ended. In terms of story, it's set in the 1860s and finds Kyo plagued by widespread inequality. But one samurai will change the course of history in his search for justice.

As Sakamoto Ryoma, you are out to avenge your father’s death, clear your name of murder, and restore your honor. In doing so, you will end the samurai era and forever change the future of Japan.

It is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S and will feature only Japanese voiceovers with English subtitles.
