It seems the push for Yakuza on the Xbox consoles has reached a new turning point.
During the Xbox Series X reveal, Yakuza: Like A Dragon was announced to be a launch title for the new Xbox console and for Windows. This isn’t the first time a Yakuza title has made an appearance on the Xbox line. Yakuza 0, Kiwami, & Kiwami 2 are all available on Xbox Game Pass.
First you go to prison for a crime your boss committed, then once you’re finally free, he shoots you. Some guys just can't catch a break. Rise from rock bottom and take Yokohama by storm in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. #InsideXbox @RGGStudio @SEGA https://t.co/kzL0HWX3Y4 pic.twitter.com/N70T5tUiWo

Xbox’s new Smart Delivery entails that if you buy the game on Xbox One, you’ll immediately get it free if you upgrade to the Xbox Series X.
Don’t worry PlayStation stans, the series won’t be leaving its original console as it will be on the PlayStation 4, but no word if it’ll be coming to the PlayStation 5 (but I’ll go on a hunch and say it will).
Yakuza: Like A Dragon will follow the story of Ichiban Kasuga , who takes the fall for his family and goes to prision for 18 years. Once he gets released, he goes on a quest in Yokohama to find why his own family betrayed and left him for dead. The series will deviate from its classic beat em’ up to a JRPG.
