“The Quest Begins” in Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is just over a month away so what better time than now to release a new trailer? Appropriately titled ‘The Quest Begins’, it gives us a closer look at some of the many minigames that will be providing many hours of fun on the 10th November.

I hope you stuck around to the end! Because yes, that was Baka Mitai with English lyrics. This is only one of several songs featuring English lyrics for the first time. The full list contains some classic Yakuza karaoke classics – though selfishly not Judgment – as well as a couple of new ones:

  • Baka Mitai (I’ve Been a Fool)
  • Hell Stew
  • Like a Butterfly
  • Machine Gun Kiss
  • Spring Breeze
  • The Future I Dreamed Of

Karaoke was always going to be a given being a Yakuza game. But we also got a quick glimpse of a few more minigames that will feature in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Darts, batting cages, kart racing, SEGA arcades and what appeared to be vocational tests are just some of the delights on offer. You can also grow and run your own business in the typical Yakuza way, which is to say it will be anything but conventional.

This latest trailer also helps to explain new protagonists Ichiban Kasuga’s psyche a little better. Having played videogames since a child, all he wanted was to be the hero like the ones he played. And now in some weird meta storytelling, he is.

There were also short snippets of some of the summons including a crawfish invasion and a giant chicken. Could fan favourite Nugget from Yakuza 0 be returning?

One thing is for certain though, and that is the 10th November cannot come soon enough. Featuring a brand-new city and protagonist, this is an excellent place for newcomers to jump into Yakuza, and all the absurdity it brings. Stick around on TheXboxHub as we continue to countdown to Yakuza: Like a Dragon when it releases on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
