Today Sega shared another reveal about the upcoming action game Like a Dragon: Ishin!
The upcoming samurai title will include a Trooper Card featuring popular streamer Ben Cassell also known as COHH Carnage. It's titled "Essence of Warfare" and it "releases a powerful orb of energy, hurling foes backward."
The video accompanying the announcements includes commentary from Cassell himself, as he professes himself a big fan of the series and talks about his experience with it. Of course, we also get to see the card in action.
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 and musician Alex Moukala.
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 about this upcoming entry in the popular Yakuza series, 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.
