What Is Like a Dragon: Ishin?
Like a Dragon: Ishin is a remake of a Yakuza spinoff, but it’s set well before the events of the main installments. This game takes place in 1867, so think samurai with katanas rather than gangsters with guns (though, to be honest, there are still gangsters with guns).
Though it takes place in a historical era, Like a Dragon: Ishin maintains many of the hallmarks of the Yakuza franchise, like over-the-top story lines and plenty of side quests and mini-games to tackle throughout. Check out our Like a Dragon: Ishin hands-on preview for more details.
And if you’re wondering about the change in the titles for all the upcoming games in the series, take a look at why Yakuza has been retitled Like a Dragon in the West.
