This week, SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio launch their highly anticipated samurai epic Like a Dragon: Ishin! for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One. The game is available in stores now.
In this historical adventure, 1860s Japan is plagued by widespread inequality, and one swordsman will change the course of history in the sunsetting era of the samurai. Follow the tale of Sakamoto Ryoma, a dishonored swordsman in search of his master’s assassin to clear his name, whose actions set in motion a revolution.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! Key Features:
- Over the top action and diverse weaponry: Engage in visceral combat that combines feudal-era firearms and swords as players switch between four different combat styles: Swordsman, Gunman, Wild Dancer and Brawler. A deep roster of varied weaponry marks the historic transition between classic sword fighting and modern armed warfare as players train and upgrade skills to unlock even more powerful abilities.
- Trooper Cards: Players can collect and level up Trooper Cards – items that grant temporary power-ups or special abilities, such as new attacks or stat boosts. Several of these cards feature cameo appearances from special guests like wrestling icon Kenny Omega, actor Rahul Kohli, and more. All special guest Trooper Cards are available worldwide on all platforms as free downloadable content.
- Historical samurai epic: An optional in-game glossary supplements context to the historical basis of the people, places, and events featured within Like a Dragon: Ishin!
- Old meets new: Like a Dragon: Ishin! expands upon its 2014 Japan-exclusive predecessor with localisation support, all-new content, exquisitely remastered graphics and enhanced capabilities for modern platforms in Unreal Engine 4.
Players can purchase the Physical Standard Edition for AUD $99.95
