New trailer for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Not all is bliss in paradise


It’s hard to believe that SEGA is going to release a new installment of its Yakuza saga. After the resounding success of the main saga and a change that no one expected by turning them into JRPGs with turn-based combat, thus risking their reputation, there were certain chances that people would get tired or bored of these video games, but in the end SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have worked so well, with so much quality in each of its sections and especially with a magnificent and unparalleled story each of the Yakuza installments and related games, that it has been impossible for us to disengage ourselves from their games.

After Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name last year 2023, now comes the turn of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth where Ichiban Kasuga and Kazuma Kiryu and their respective travel companions will be the main protagonists in the exploration of Yokohama and the city of Honolulu in Hawaii. In this new trailer they have the collaboration of @druski to warn you of the dangers of this paradise.

We leave you our review of Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name right here, where they have dispensed with turn-based combat to return to the origins of the saga, in case you haven’t read it before. Hopefully in just a few more days the wait for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be premature on your part.

The success of the Yakuza saga

Yakuza came to fill a position left orphaned by Shen-Mue’ s departure and his dismal failure of the third installment after so many years of fan questing. Its Kickstarter went well but then the sales were not what was planned and the reviews didn’t help either unfortunately. Since its debut in 2005 the Yakuza saga has sold close to 22 million copies in physical and digital, making it currently one of SEGA’s most profitable products.

The saga has had several spin-offs after the main installments and they are arguably more successful and popular than the “main” installments. Actually, even though they are spin-offs you can’t exactly say they don’t belong to the main saga due to their high story content, production values, importance, relevance and longevity. If each installment lasted 5 hours one could understand this concept but this is not the case.

Through Instant-Gaming you can already pre-order Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth from this link for Xbox and from this link for PC. We also leave you the link right here to the Xbox Store Spain directly in case you prefer to buy it from the official Xbox website.

In a few days you can enjoy this new game of the saga that, we clarify, will be turn-based combat again leaving aside the real-time combat Beat’Em Up style of the last installment.
