Today we got our first look at the English cast of Yakuza: Like a Dragon and that only made the wait a bit harder because it is looking to be an exciting off the path game within the Yakuza universe.
This morning, Sega confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon is launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and also Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in addition to PC. There’s going to be a Day Ichi Edition coming, accompanying the HEro and Legendary versions previously announced. A PlayStation 5 upgrade path is also being planned for the Western release and will be announced at a later date.
We also have a confirmed voice cast that includes George Takei, so if you are not officially on board, I feel sorry for you! Mr. Takei is taking on the role of Masumi Arakawa, a powerful patriarch whose dissolution of the Tojo Clan’s yakuza empire sets into motion the conflict at the heart of protagonist Ichiban Kasuga’s story.
The main cast includes the following talent:
Kaiji Tang as Ichiban Kasuga, the protagonist of the story returning from 18 years spent in prison
George Takei as Masumi Arakawa, patriarch of the Arakawa Family
Andrew Morgado as Koichi Adachi, an ex-cop on the search for truth
Greg Chun as Yu Nanba, downtrodden former nurse making amends with the world
Elizabeth Maxwell as Saeko Mukoda, a bar hostess on a mission
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be available in the West on Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, PlayStation 4, and Steam in November 2020.
