Yakuza Like A Dragon – The Quest Begins
SEGA has released a new trailer, “The Quest Begins” for its one-of-a-kind RPG Yakuza: Like a Dragon. In the trailer, the down-and-out Yakuza scrapper, Ichiban Kasuga, describes his videogame-esque heroic journey that will take him through an amazing array of minigames in a veritable underworld playground. Yokohama features a plethora of fun and hilarious distractions, including kart racing, batting cages, SEGA arcades, high-octane vocational school tests, and the ability to manage and grow your own company! Ichiban and his ragtag crew of friends have endless fun activities to engage with as they try to restore justice to the streets of Yokohama.
This trailer/video may only be displayed if it is behind an age-gate that: (1) is age-neutral (i.e., requires the user to input their date of birth or select it from a drop-down bar; (2) employs reasonable technical measures to keep underage users from re-entering their age after initially being denied access. Failure to implement these requirements may jeopardize your ability to obtain material of this nature from us in the future.
That’s not all, though; the end of “The Quest Begins” features a special surprise. For the first time in the series’ history, Yakuza: Like a Dragon features English renditions of fans’ most beloved karaoke songs from previous entries in the series, as well as several brand-new songs.
The full list of English-voiced karaoke songs includes:
- Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool)
- Hell Stew
- Like a Butterfly
- Machine Gun Kiss
- Spring Breeze
- The Future I Dreamed Of
