Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Aug 182023

The new trailer for Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name came out this morning as expected.

I only watched bits and pieces of the trailer since I don’t want too much of it spoiled for me, but what I saw got me pretty excited.

(And terrified – this looks like it could have some intensely emotional moments. Please, let Kiryu rest. Let him go home and be happy.)

Aside from the story, the trailer also shows fun things like outfit customization for Kiryu, a coliseum that lets you build a team for large-scale fights with apparently different playable characters, and the live-action cabaret club, which I’m sure won’t be awkward at all.

What might be even more exciting is the announcement that Gaiden includes a demo for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. The demo, or playable teaser, will be unlocked once you beat the game and has unique scenes that won’t be in the full game. That’s even more reason to be excited for Gaiden!

Finally, while it hasn’t been shared by the English account yet, the previously-announced Fall 2023 RGG Summit has now been confirmed for September 20. They’ll probably talk about Gaiden and show more of Infinite Wealth, but I can’t help but hope for some surprise announcements!

Even though I didn’t watch the whole trailer, I’m more excited than ever for Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name – and even more determined to catch up on the series so I’ll be ready to play it when it comes out on November 9!

If you’re like me and have been waiting for physical Gaiden import news, Play-Asia has listed Asian multi-language PS4 and PS5 copies that include English. VGP confirmed they will have it as well. Now… to decide if I should get the PS4 version or if I’ll have a PS5 by then…

Anyway, what are your thoughts on the latest Like a Dragon Gaiden news?
