Today Sega released a gallery of screenshots and artwork alongside details of the upcoming game of the series formerly known as Yakuza, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.
We get the introduction of the full main cast of the game, most of which will be familiar to veterans of the series, especially those who played Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
On top of that, we also take a look at some gameplay mechanics and locations.
We start with the introduction of the members of the cast. Keep in mind that it includes spoilers if you have not played Yakuza: Like a Dragon and possibly even Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, as it describes the situation of known characters at the beginning of Infinite Wealth.
Cast: Kazuhiro Nakaya
The first hero of the story
Kasuga carries on Masumi Arakawa's legacy of rehabilitating former yakuza back into society, intent on not letting anyone fall through the cracks.
Shocked to learn that his mother is alive in Hawaii, he goes in search of her.
There, on that small slice of paradise, he once again crosses paths with the legendary yakuza—Kazuma Kiryu.
Cast: Takaya Kuroda
The second hero of the story
Once a legend in the yakuza world, Kiryu now lives in secrecy as an agent for the influential Daidoji that operates in both the political and financial circles.
On a mission for the faction, he pays a visit to Hawaii where his fate once again intersects with Ichiban Kasuga.
Cast: Shinichi Tsutsumi
He was once a powerful brawler under the command of Masumi Arakawa.
Right now, he's supposed to be serving time for a murder conviction,
but due to certain circumstances, he finds himself reuniting with Ichiban Kasuga, his fated rival.
Cast: Ken Yasuda
Former homeless in Yokohama and a comrade of Kasuga.
Nanba enjoys a peaceful albeit mundane existence working in an office at a medical equipment manufacturer.
However, like Kasuga, he is oblivious to the sinister hand about to dismantle his idyllic life.
Cast: Ryo Narita
A young man who forms a bond with Kasuga after they ride the same plane to Hawaii.
His proficiency in programming comes in handy when Kasuga faces a computer dilemma.
Despite his gentle and refined demeanor, he remains composed in critical situations.
Cast: Satoru Iguchi
A Hawaiian local who drives taxis for a living.
When Kasuga visits Hawaii, he ends up riding in his taxi.
Eric's fluency in Japanese and his charming, friendly nature instantly strikes up a rapport with Kasuga.
Cast: Akio Otsuka
Former detective and a comrade of Kasuga.
Having started his own security firm, Adachi is making strides towards achieving his dream.
He also assists Kasuga in helping former yakuza members reintegrate into society.
Cast: Sumire Uesaka
Cabaret club hostess and a comrade of Kasuga.
Current manager of the cabaret club left behind by her benefactor. She is determined to keep the business afloat despite the economic downturn.
Saeko is unexpectedly approached by Kasuga, with whom she once escaped the jaws of death...
Cast: Yuichi Nakamura
Member of the Korean mafia in Yokohama, Geomijul.
As Seonhee's right-hand man, he secretly works towards rebuilding the underworld of Yokohama.
While instructed by Seonhee to refuse negotiations with Kasuga and the others, he can't go a day without worrying about them.
Cast: Nobuhiko Okamoto
A man who once led the Yokohama Chinese mafia, Yokohama Liumang.
He has now passed on the reins to Seonhee and displays his exceptional culinary skills in the city.
However, the sharp gleam in his eyes has not dimmed in the slightest.
Cast: Anju Inami
A woman who devotes herself to cleaning and housework.
By chance, she meets Kasuga who happens to be in Hawaii.
Beneath her composed and dignified demeanor, Fujinomiya harbors a deep-seated secret...
Cast: Hana Takeda
The resilient leader of Yokohama's most powerful gangs, the Liumang and Geomijul.
She was once enemies with Kasuga and his comrades, but they eventually became allies.
Believing that they must distance themselves from the underworld to live proper and respectable lives, Seonhee ends up breaking contact with them.
Cast: Hiroki Hasegawa
A man who works as the captain of the Seiryu Clan.
Due to the chairman currently being incarcerated, he has become the de-facto leader.
When Kasuga visits the organization's office, Ebina introduces him to a certain someone.
We also get to take a look at the location in Hawaii, which looks like a "paradise on Earth." However, the city of Honolulu also has a dark side. The stronger the light, the darker shadow it casts. Specifically, the screenshots show the Anaconda shopping mall and a location at night.
More images show the Taxi service, which is a bit expensive but instantly transports you to your destination, which you can select via the map.
Another means of mobility is the electric "OKA Surfer," which is basically a Segway. It has a feature that automatically drives you to your destination and you can even customize it, but it'll stop working if the battery runs out. We also get to take a look at the Trolley car, which will stop at popular tourist spots.
Lastly, we take a look at the Seiryu Clan in Yokohama, with Masataka Ebina in control, since the chairman is in jail.
You can check out all the screenshots below.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be released on January 26, 2024, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Incidentally, as a bonus, Sega also released a trailer of Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name introducing our hero, Kazuma Kiryu. The game releases on November 9.
