The Games of 2024 – Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
DEVELOPER Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio
PLATFORMS Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, PC
RELEASE DATE 01.26.2024
The zany Like a Dragon series—formerly known as Yakuza—is bringing together its past and present for a new chapter so ambitious, it can’t be contained to Japan. Players will control both original series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and his successor Ichiban Kasuga in two different settings: Yokohama’s Isezaki Ijincho district and Honolulu, Hawaii, with Ichi on a quest to reconnect with his long-lost mother. Fans can expect the classic mix of exploration, minigames, and combat, mostly in the new turn-based RPG style (though Kiryu can temporarily shift back into old-school real-time brawling). Infinite Wealth goes hard on the side content too, with send-ups of Pokémon, Crazy Taxi, and even Animal Crossing, courtesy of a separate, fully customizable island where you can gather resources, befriend villagers, and build your dream home.
