The mash-up of Streets of Rage 2 and Yakuza was first released earlier in the year and features pixel art versions of Kiryu and Majima as playable characters, who taking to the streets to stop the violence on the streets by beating people up. The game also supports local co-op.
Sega’s 60th Anniversary has promised that each studio week will feature exclusive interviews, streams, competitions and deep dives into the Sega Archives. RGG Studio previously released an interview with Like a Dragon director Ryosuke Horii.
This is a time-limited release, so be sure to grab your copy from Steam, which will make a perfect chaser to the Western localisation Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which has been released on Xbox Series X and S. The game is also set for release on PS5 in early 2021.
