SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announced Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch on January 26, 2024. A new trailer was shown during the RGG Summit Fall 2023 livestream, revealing several details about the game’s story.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is the eighth mainline entry in the series, and its also known as Like a Dragon 8 in Japan. Kazuma Kiryu and Ichiban Kasuga will both be drawn into a major plot that takes both series protagonists to Hawaii for the first time.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth Starts 2024 Off Strong
In Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Sawashiro returns to inform that Ichiban Kasuga’s mother, Akane, is still alive in Hawaii. However, Kasuga is quickly drawn into trouble after arriving. This leads to the scene from the initial reveal trailer where Kasuga wakes up on the shores of the beach of Hawaii. It appears that even Hawaii is the site of major yakuza activity for one reason or another.
Kiryu arrives in Hawaii to aid Kasuga, and he will also be aided in Japan by returning characters from Yakuza: Like a Dragon such as Nanba, Saeko, Adachi, Seong-hui, and Joon-gi Han. However, Kiryu will also be fighting yakuza and his own unfortunate illness: cancer. In addition, Kiryu’s identity is revealed to the world once more, so the Dragon of Dojima is truly back in the fold.
