Earlier this month, Yakuza: Like a Dragon received a release date that meant the Xbox Series X would get some exclusive access. Yakuza: Like a Dragon was set for the launch day of Xbox Series X on November 10 and three days later on PC and other systems. Now, Sega has announced that all versions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, excluding PS5, will launch on November 10. This is a move to align the current gen and PC launches with Like a Dragon‘s next gen debut.
This is of course good news for PC players, as we now get to play the game three days earlier. It’s unclear whether the initial three day gap was due to delayed messaging and release dates for next gen consoles, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise us. Either way, it’s great to see parity for most systems, and if Microsoft’s messaging about systems is to be believed, they shouldn’t care too much about losing the exclusivity period.
The day and date
The PC version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon is coming to the Windows Store and Steam. There’s no word on an Epic Games Store or a GOG launch as of yet. Like a Dragon marks the fourth PC release in the series, following Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. Those three titles released sometime after their PlayStation 4 counterparts, and we welcome a day one launch on PC.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the seventh mainline game in the series (eighth, if you include Yakuza 0). It’s also the first Yakuza game to launch simultaneously across multiple platforms including PC. Yakuza: Like a Dragon brings dynamic RPG gameplay to the streets of Yokohama, Japan. It’s an adventure that combines intense brawls, crushing drama, and that over-the-top nature the Yakuza series is famous for.
