Like a Dragon: Ishin!

Today Sega released a brand new trailer for the upcoming action game Like a Dragon: Ishin!, which is finally coming next month. 

The trailer focuses on a new mechanic introduced in the game, Trooper Cards, that let you collect cards representing various allies that can be slotted in your fighting styles and unleashed in battle for a variety of effects.

This mechanic is actually a rather radical reimagination of a feature included in the original Ishin, which let the player recruit troops to be utilized in the Battle Dungeon feature designed as a portable progression method primarily played via the PS Vita companion app. Of course, the PS Vita has long departed the realm of the living (at least as a console supported by developers), so the mechanic has been completely overhauled into something that can be used during the main portion of the gameplay. 

You can watch how it works below. Recently, we also saw a trailer about the title's many minigames and another about the "Another Life" feature

Like a Dragon: Ishin! releases on February 21, 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

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 with Takeda Kanryusai, Ito Kashitaro, and Takechi Hanpeita.
