Like a Dragon: Ishin! Unveils “Blade of Vengeance” Trailer and Details On Pre-Order Bonuses
SEGA and RGG Studio today unveiled a new trailer, “Blade of Vengeance,” for their highly anticipated samurai epic “Like a Dragon: Ishin!” The video provides a glimpse into the game’s story and highlights protagonist Sakamoto Ryoma’s journey as he fights for justice after being wrongly accused of murder.
“Like a Dragon: Ishin!” is a remake of “Yakuza Ishin.” The name of the series has been changed from “Yakuza” to “Like a Dragon” starting with “Yakuza 7.” Subsequent games in the series will be known as “Like a Dragon,” with two more installments set to follow after the release of “Like a Dragon: Ishin!” In preparation for the game, players can watch the new “Blade of Vengeance” trailer, which is now available. The game is slated to launch later this February.
In addition to this trailer, SEGA and RGG Studio have announced the availability of a SteelBook Edition for US pre-orders of the standard physical edition, which can be purchased from GameStop or BestBuy. Furthermore, players who pre-order physical or digital editions of the game will receive three exclusive weapons, while those who pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition will receive early access to the game on February 17, 2023, along with DLC items such as the Shinsengumi Captain’s Set, Ryoma Growth Support Kit, Sword Upgrade Materials Kit, Gun Upgrade Materials Kit, Third Division Armament Expansion Kit, and the Dragon of Dojima Skin.
