Western players will also be able to play the game with an English dub. Developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, introduced a English voice-over option in last year’s Judgment and is continuing the trend with Yakuza: Like A Dragon. Amongst the voice cast is George Takei, most notably known for playing Sulu in the original Star Trek television series.

A new trailer has accompanied the release date news and gives an insight into the story behind Yakuza: Like A Dragon, which features a brand-new protagonist called Ichiban Kasuga. The trailer also gives fans a taste of how the English dub will be.

Check it out below.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon will see the series step away from its hands-on combat and instead embrace an RPG approach and adopt a turn-based system. Players can expect to be wrapped in a crime-drama and control a team of four members in strategic battles.

Various Yakuza titles are currently available on the Xbox Games Pass. Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of the original Yakuza 2 from 2006, will join the service at the end of this month alongside two other games.
