Latest Yakuza: Like a Dragon trailer shows off all the crazy stuff you can do

SEGA has released a new trailer for its latest return to Yokohama in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. This trailer is titled “The Quest Begins” and focuses primarily on the many wacky mini-games Like a Dragon’s protagonist Ichiban Kasuga will be able to entertain himself with during his adventure.

I have to say, this is one of the craziest trailers SEGA has released in quite awhile, and it’s awesome. Some of the wild stuff you’ll be able to do in Like A Dragon include kart racing, playing arcades (yay!), batting cages, vocational school tests, karaoke and even managing your own company.

Also, for the first time in the series, Like a Dragon features English voiced renditions of many popular songs throughout the entire series that include:

Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool)
• Hell Stew
• Like a Butterfly
• Machine Gun Kiss
• Spring Breeze
• The Future I Dreamed Of

Yakuza: Like a Dragon releases on Nov. 10 on Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows 10 and Steam. The PlayStation 5 version will release on March 2, 2021. The Xbox Series X and S versions will offer a Smart Delivery upgrade path for Xbox One owners of the game, and PS4 owners will receive a free upgrade to the PS5 version, both physical and digital, according to SEGA.
