At the 2023 Xbox Showcase, Sega released a new trailer for Like a Dragon 8. The game is now titled Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth and will be released in early 2024 on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4.
The nearly 2-minute trailer shows Kasuga Ichiban waking up nude on a beach, likely somewhere in the USA. This is the first time a main character in a Like a Dragon series game has appeared outside of Japan.
This is the first look at Like a Dragon 8 since its announcement trailer back at RGG Summit during the Tokyo Game Show 2022. This trailer has former series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu teaming up with new main character Kasuga Ichiban in Kamurocho. Taken with the new trailer, it is likely the game will take place over multiple areas, with at least one of the new locations being outside of Japan.
The Like a Dragon series was formerly known as the Yakuza series internationally. Its name has been changed to match the Japanese title of the series Ryū Ga Gotoku. The Yakuza series grew in international popularity from the well received Yakuza 0 released in North America and Europe in 2017.
