Operation Backlog Completion 2024

A new trailer for Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is set to be shown on August 18 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET.

The trailer will be in Japanese, but it’s likely they’ll release an English version afterwards.

It will be part of the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio TV #22, the latest in their series of regular broadcasts. According to translations of the video description, it will also have information about upcoming events.

To me, that sounds like there’s a good chance we’ll get a date for the September RGG Summit, since September is coming up soon. June’s RGG Summit wasn’t as exciting as I’d hoped, due to the trailers having been shown at previous events already. Here’s hoping the upcoming RGG Summit has some surprises in store!

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will be out on November 9. It’s digital-only in the west, though I’m still keeping my eyes open for physical imports with English on the disc.

This feels like the point where I should say I’m nowhere near ready to play Gaiden, but I’ve actually made decent progress on my Yakuza backlog. Only Yakuza 6 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon are left from the main series, and I started Yakuza 6 last night. Maybe I will catch up in time for Gaiden after all!

Are you going to watch the upcoming Like a Dragon Gaiden trailer? Do you expect any surprises from the live stream, or do you think any announcements will be saved for the RGG Summit?

  1. It feels like Yakuza games are coming out fast. I only played Yakuza 0 but I enjoyed it a hell of a lot so I’m always interested in more, even if I am lagging really far behind.

    • RGG Studio releases games very fast, about one game a year. Their asset reuse with the cities and stuff probably helps a lot. Gaiden is a shorter side game, though, with the next mainline game coming next year.
