Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Now Available from SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio

Today SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio launched the action-adventure brawler, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, now available on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Steam. Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is the latest entry in Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s flagship Like a Dragon series.


Once a legendary yakuza, Kazuma Kiryu faked his own death and abandoned his name for the sake of protecting his family. Now, he is thrust into conflict by a mysterious figure attempting to drive him out of hiding. Key gameplay features include:

  • ERASE YOUR PAST TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE: Embark on a gripping action narrative with bone-shattering combat in vibrant locations filled with exciting characters and activities.
  • ULTIMATE COMBAT WITH TWO HIGH-IMPACT FIGHTING STYLES: Dynamically switch between the Yakuza and Agent fighting styles in visceral melee combat. With the Yakuza style, strike fear into enemies by unleashing wildly aggressive moves powered by Kiryu’s unparalleled strength and flair. Or up the ante with the Agent style by delivering blows with absolute speed and precision, while using an array of high-tech gadgets like electrified bind wires to stun enemies then send them flying.
  • ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENT: Whether you’re brawling in the Castle’s Coliseum battle arena, singing a new karaoke song, enjoying a drink at the live-action cabaret club, or racing in the pocket circuit, the world offers a variety of immersive experiences.

Players can purchase the game in two editions, standard and deluxe – the latter which allows players to fight as or alongside three legendary yakuza in the Coliseum battle arena aboard the mysterious container ship known as the Castle.

Completing the Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name campaign will grant players  access to the Special Trial Version of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Players can check out the larger-than-life RPG ahead of its January 26, 2024 launch in two exciting game modes: the exploratory Adventure Mode and narrative-focused Story Mode.
