Like a Dragon: Ishin! Alex Moukala Trooper Card

Today Sega shared an interesting reveal for the upcoming action game Like a Dragon: Ishin!

Popular music producer, composer, and YouTuber Alex Moukala, well-known among other things for his insightful commentary on gaming music, will appear in the game as a Trooper Card titled "Essence of the Crescendo" promising to "blast away enemies with a symphonic shockwave."

The announcement video features a few comments from Moukala himself alongside a look at how his card works within the title's gameplay, doing exactly what it says on the tin. 

if you're unfamiliar with Trooper Cards, they can be assigned to the various styles and provide activable special skills that can be triggered at will. Recently, we also saw more cameos featuring wrestler Kenny Omega and actor Rahul Kohli, on top of cosplayer Vampy Bit Me.

You can check out the announcement trailer below.

Like a Dragon: Ishin! releases on February 21, 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. If you'd like to know more, you can read our hands-on preview.

In case you missed the news, this is not exactly the same game titled Ryu Ga Gotoku: Ishin! that launched exclusively on the Japanese market in 2014 for PS3 and PS4. It's actually a substantial remake similar to the Yakuza Kiwami games. In fact, the Japanese version is titled "Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin! Kiwami."

If you want to see more, you can enjoy video interviews with the voice actors that were cast for the remake in order to bring back the likeness of several popular characters from Yakuza 0, playing Takeda Kanryusai, Ito Kashitaro, and Takechi Hanpeita. We also saw a trailer about the title's many minigames and another about the "Another Life" feature.
