Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is much bigger than expected

We are used to the games in the Yakuza series being story-driven, with very little room to wiggle outside of the story other than some mini-games. Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is going to be quite different on that matter according to the Japanese studio Ryu Ga Gotoku. In a recent interview, studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama revealed that the upcoming title is much bigger than anything they have created previously. Not only the open-world in the game will be about three times the size of the previous game's map but Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will keep the fans entertained for much longer. If an average run of a Yakuza game would take about 20 hours, the new title will keep you occupied for about 50 hours.

A huge open world to explore

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will feature a huge open world for you to explore but also plenty of side activities to engage in. The game allows you to immerse into a thrilling storyline starring Ichiban Kasuga and Kazuma Kiryu, but it takes a significantly different approach to gameplay by giving you plenty more freedom to interact with the surrounding world as you please. Also, you have to keep in mind that in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth the action is set in a brand-new location that is included in the series for the first time, Hawaii, which opens up plenty of opportunities to discover.



Overall, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is a risky bet from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, which aims to deliver a more engaging experience, especially outside of the story. It will be an exciting and chaotic trip to new lands that the fans of the Yakuza series will love, as it maintains the unique style of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, with its turn-based combat and all. Of course, you can expect to face plenty of surprises with Ichiban Kasuga as a co-protagonist.

The release of the game is scheduled for January 25, 2024, on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. You can use our comparator to get a cheap Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth CD key already.
