SEGA has announced that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be getting official English dub, unlike the few previous games in the series that arrived in West with Japanese voice-over and English subtitles. Kaiji Tang will play the role of Ichiban Kasuga while George Takei will tackle the antagonist Masumi Arakawa.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam on November 13 as well as PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later point.
Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.
Ichiban sets out to discover the truth behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back, drawing a ragtag group of society’s outcasts to his side: Adachi, a rogue cop, Nanba, a homeless ex-nurse, and Saeko, a hostess on a mission. Together, they are drawn into a conflict brewing beneath the surface in Yokohama and must rise to become the heroes they never expected to be.
