Like a Dragon: Ishin! shows its combat

The Yakuza series is so popular in the East that it has been the origin of spin-offs. Like a Dragon: Ishin! is one of those. The game was released in Japan for PlayStation a while ago, and it was received with joy by the fans of the series following the life of Kazuma Kiryu. We will soon enjoy a version for the Western market that brings some novelties. Like a Dragon: Ishin! follows the endeavors of swordsman Sakamoto Ryoma and it's set in Japan during the latest years of the Edo period. It's a specially convulsing time in a country whose society is drastically transforming and leaving behind the samurai era. 

In Like a Dragon: Ishin!, Sakamoto Ryoma will seek vengeance after his father is murdered, and he will have to fight to clear his honor. The game is deeply focused on combat and features an action-based system that will let the protagonist face his opponents with spectacular martial-arts movements. You will also be able to use a sword and a gun to fight against your enemies, which allows you to swap between several fighting styles. Each of them is appropriate for different situations, but they are all quite effective. You can watch how the combat in Like a Dragon: Ishin! looks in a new video released by SEGA that shows Ryoma using some of these styles in battle.



Although Like a Dragon: Ishin! doesn't bring anything new to the table in terms of story, it's an adventure full of action that the fans of Yakuza will love. The change of scenario feels quite refreshing in a game that uses the story of Japan as an excuse to deliver an experience full of action. The game will launch next February on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, and you can buy Like a Dragon: Ishin! cheap already with the help of our comparator.
