The storyline in Infinite Wealth is set around Ichiban Kasuga who wakes up naked on a beach, and although not much is known about the narrative, it is expected that Ichiban and Kiryu will be dual protagonists. Players will be able to explore the Isezaki Ijincho district of Yokohama and Honolulu City in Hawaii.
The new English-dubbed trailer features Danny Trejo as Dwight, the leader of the Barracudas gang, and Daniel Dae Kim as Masataka Ebina, the captain of the local yakuza syndicate. Both actors were revealed to be a part of the game when the release date of the title was announced back in September.
The trailer showcases several scenes from the game’s storyline and reveals that Ichiban Kasuga is being sent to Honolulu, Hawaii to find his mother, Akane Kishida, who he thought was dead. He then meets Kiryu who reveals that he has cancer.
It also showcases Ichiban Kasuga and Kazuma Kiryu teaming up for battles as well as fighting sharks and giant squids. Players will also be able to enjoy several fun side activities in the game such as surfing.
Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio had previously revealed that the game will feature a turn-based system for all playable characters with full freedom of movement. This is seen during combat and allows players to place themselves in good positions strategically and defeat opponents more easily and effectively. The game will also feature Dondoko Island where players can have their own place and partake in several fun activities.
The new story trailer also revealed pre-order bonuses that all those who pre-order the game will be receiving. The pre-order bonuses include the Hero’s Booster Pack, which will increase the party’s level and job rank by 1, and a Special Job Set, adding the new Lineback and Tennis Ace jobs, which will feature alongside the other jobs from the previous title Like a Dragon. The characters will retain their jobs from the base game and will also have several new jobs.
RGG Studio has revealed that the map in the game will be the biggest in the series and three times larger than the previous title, meaning that places will be abundant for players to explore and a plethora of side activities.
Players can enjoy several returning mini-games as well as some new ones. 20 mini-games have already been confirmed and there could be more.
Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has also said that Infinite Wealth is going to be the largest game in length in the franchise and players will need more than just one or two all-nighters to complete the game. RGG Studio Head Masayoshi Yokoyama that the upcoming title is shaping to be a “monster-class game” and if players try to play the game continuously, they will get sick.
He also revealed that developers are worried that the game’s length will bother many and the studio is trying to create a festive environment around the game to get the players hyped up that the game is well worth their time and they can take weeks or months to finish the title and not beat it at the cost of their health.
