Dante Kiryu :p
Edit: he looks emo :(

neutralgamer1992445d ago

Damn they shouldn't do that to kiryu. Also this could mean we get the remake for kenzen in 2024-2025 to fill in the gap

-Foxtrot445d ago

I don’t understand why he’s back as a dual protagonist

Let him move on and keep him to cameos, Ichiban was a great character he could lead the series going forward

If enough time has passed for Kiryu's hair to be all grey, why does Kasuga still have the failed punch perm? Also Kiryu's hairstyle looks... really weird lmao. I wonder if it's a wig since he was in hiding.

Happy to see Kiryu back! Still clinging to PS4 in 2024 is...disappointing. I suppose these games always look great anyway though. Name change is odd

Nyxus446d ago

It looks like they're going with the Like a Dragon name going forward for the series. Makes sense in a way, having the same tile for the series worldwide.

porkChop445d ago

Technically the name for the series was always Ryu Ga Gotoku in Japan, which translates to Like a Dragon. They only called it Yakuza in the West because it would be easier for new players to understand. So now they're embracing the true name of the franchise.

andy85445d ago

Oh I know, it just seems odd to change it so deep into the franchise. Especially with the series becoming more popular now on the Yakuza name. If they called it Like a Dragon 2 I'd understand it more but Like a Dragon 8 sounds strange 😂

VersusDMC445d ago

A lot of Yakuza coming!

Ive played Yakuza 0, Kiwami 1 and 2, Yakuza 3, 4,5 6 and Like Dragon. What is this Like a dragon Ishin, Like a Dragon Gaiden? If you know, can you fill me in on them and how they relate to the Yakuza games? And why does it look like Kiryu is in Like a Dragon Ishin?

VersusDMC445d ago

Like a dragon Ishin is a feudal japan story that reuses character models and their same voice actors as different characters. No story relation. Its a non canon spin off like Yakuza Dead Souls. Its a stand alone story.

Like a dragon Gaiden is canon. It is the story of what kiryu was up to between Yakuza 6 and his return in Like a Dragon 8.

I absolutely cannot wait for this. One of my all-time favorite series!

masterfox188d ago

trying to avoid any youtubers / influencers ignorance and hipocrisy annoyance in my youtube feed and now is in our games , hmmm f#%%ing great! :/

Abriael188d ago

Yeah, she must totally be a bad person because she's a youtuber right?

What a shallow take.

masterfox188d ago

and who said is a bad person?, I just dont like the hipocrisy and ignorance coming from them, and try to avoid them. And thats a right I have to like or dislike, same as you simple as that.

Abriael188d ago (Edited 188d ago )

You haven't read a word of the article have you? Who told you she's a hypocrite or ignorant?

She's a massive fan of the franchise and she has been for 7 years of her activity. She likely knows more about it than you do. Hell, when she worked for Hololive her stage name was Kiryu Coco.

Again, a horribly shallow take. You certainly have the right to like or dislike whoever you like, but when you do without knowing a single thing about them, the problem is on your side, not theirs.

gold_drake188d ago

usually id agree, but japanese "youtubers" are different.

good on her for winning tho

AgitUzumaki188d ago

The one with red dress is a pornstar. Ai Sayama, she’s a pretty good.

Amplitude188d ago (Edited 188d ago )

Ive played all the Yakuza games but in a super wack order and with over a decade of time spent between it all. Playing through them all again now in order to get the full plot and just finished 0. Hopefully 8 is out by the time I finish this. Best series honestly
