It’s a great day for Like a Dragon (Previously titled Yakuza) fans today because developer Ryu Ga Gotoku has streamed their latest direct, finally giving players a look at Infinite Wealth, the highly anticipated sequel to Like a Dragon.

Details From the Epic Trailers, Daniel Dae Kim, and Danny Trejo

Daniel Dae Kim
Daniel Dae Kim plays Masataka Ebina, a mysterious new character.

First up, we have the story trailer, which was 10 minutes long. It may seem like a lot, but that’s only a small glimpse into the story, setting up the events and tone for the game.


Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth follows the current protagonist of the series, Ichiban Kasuga, who has travelled to Hawaii in search of his long-lost mother.

From what players learnt from Ichiban’s last game, he was separated from his mother and grew up in Soapland, which set him on his path into the Yakuza.

Series and fan favourite Kazuma Kiryu makes a return this time around with some hard-hitting news that he has been diagnosed with cancer. This is sure-fire way to pull on the heartstrings of all fans who have followed his story over the past 18 years.

Joining Ichiban and Kiryu’s party are all familiar characters from the previous Like a Dragon along with some new additions. Some big names have also made it into the game, with actor and director Daniel Dae Kim cast as the voice of Masataka Ebina, a ruthless captain of a yakuza syndicate.

The type-cast hard man Danny Trejo has also been selected to play Dwight, leader of the Barracudas, who supervises the largest counterfeit goods market in the world. He is aided by his sharp sense of business and even sharper machete.


Next up is a packed 5-minute gameplay trailer, showcasing the combat and all the crazy stuff you can get up to while you’re taking breaks from the story.

The turned-based RPG battle system makes a comeback this time around with new jobs for characters to learn like Samurai, Desperado, Pyrodancer, Geodancer, Housekeeper and a Bruce Lee inspired Action Star. Poundmates, which is the series equivalent to summons, also return with some new additions.

New mini-games have also been revealed. Crazy Delivery sees you delivering food to customers and pulling off the most insane stunts and tricks along the way.

Sujimon Battles is a mini-game where you can use the Sujimon you have registered to train and battle against other NPCs to become the strongest Sujimon manager.


Miss Match is a dating app mini-game similar to the live chat game in Yakuza 6. Classic mini-games are making a return, like fan favorite Karaoke, SEGA arcades, and much more.

Q1 2024 is starting to look packed for RPG fans as the release date for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth has been set for January 26th, 2024. It will be released on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.


If you’re not a fan of the new turned-based system or, like most of us, want to see more of Kiryu in action, Like a Dragon: The Man Who Erased His Name releases on 8th November 2023 and follows Kiryu in a more traditional beat em up style game.

Who do you think is the best protagonist Ichiban or Kiryu? Are you into the RPG style or should it stay action based? Are Daniel Dae Kim and Danny Trejo a good addition to the cast? Get in touch, drop us a comment, and let us know your thoughts.
