Yakuza: Like a Dragon heading west in November, English dub stars George Takei

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the latest entry in developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s acclaimed action series, will be making its way to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in the west this November, and there’s a brand-new trailer – introducing the full English dub – to celebrate the news.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon (or Yakuza 7, if you prefer) is something of a departure for the long-running series in that it stars a brand-new protagonist in the form of Ichiban Kasuga, and replaces previous instalments’ meaty beat-’em’up action with a turn-based combat system more akin to an RPG. And if you’re wondering how that impacts the experience, Eurogamer contributor Malindy Hetfield came away both surprised and delighted when she explored the Japanese version of the game earlier this year.

Like a Dragon also marks the first time a mainline Yakuza game will receive a full English voice dub to go alongside its localised subtitles (Yakuza’s detective-themed spin-off Judgment received a similar treatment last year), and publisher Sega has revealed veteran actor George Takei will play Masumi Arakawa, a “powerful patriarch whose dissolution of the Tojo Clan’s yakuza empire sets into motion the conflict at the heart of the complex, winding narrative”.
