Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has announced that the first playable demo of Like A Dragon: Ishin (aka Yakuza Ishin) will drop at TwitchCon on October 9 – 7, 2022.
Like A Dragon: Ishin is scheduled for release in February 2023 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. The game originally launched in February 2014 for PS4 & PS3 and was never released outside of Japan, much like 2008’s Yakuza: Kenzan.
RGG Studio announced following the game’s reveal that Like A Dragon: Ishin will not feature an English dub, and also explained why the studio decided not to remake Yakuza: Kenzan over Ishin, as seen below:
From all of the fan feedback we have received, many fans wanted an Ishin remake more than Kenzan. We also believed that Ishin was more popular, and if we wanted to bring in the Kenzan remake, we would want to change the storyline a little bit, and that would take a lot of time and would be budget-consuming. It really needs good timing for us to consider a remake of Kenzan.
