Ishin, out February 2023 – PlayStation.Blog

Hi there! Today is a very special day. Not just for RGG Studio, the brains behind Yakuza: Like a Dragon, but for all of our fans around the world who have been eagerly awaiting the most legendary lost chapter from the creators of the Like a Dragon series.. We’ve read your comments on Twitter, seen your fan content, and are beyond thrilled to announce that the legendary action-packed samurai title, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, will launch worldwide in February 2023.

A hero in Japanese history brings about the end of the samurai

Like a Dragon: Ishin is an action-adventure historical thriller set uniquely in 1860s Kyo, a fictionalized version of Kyoto. While other games tell stories from earlier in Japanese history, Ishin lets you uncover the story of the demise of the iconic samurai era. Our hero, Sakamoto Ryoma, is a true historical figure widely credited with overthrowing the shogunate and leading Japan into sweeping reform.

Like a Dragon: Ishin calls on familiar faces to tell this epic story. Fans will recognize our protagonist as Kazuma Kiryu from previous entries in the franchise. In Ishin, Kiryu takes on the role of Sakamoto Ryoma and also takes the rest of his team along. Goro Majima and other Yakuza celebrities join Ryoma as friends and foes in this fictional world that trades the flashy streets of Tokyo for the chaotic bustle of 1860s Kyo. This new character dynamic is as exciting as it is unexpected. , with a series of stunning twists in a story that only RGG studio can tell.

Four deadly combat styles and fascinating heat actions

In Ishin you can slice your enemies with a deadly blade using the Swordsman style or shoot your enemies with a revolver using the Gunman style. Better yet, brandish both a gun and a sword and go into a fury with the Wild Dancer style. And when you’re feeling extra brutal, smash skulls with your bare fists using the Brawler style.

But that’s not all. It wouldn’t be an RGG Studio title without some epically absurd heat action. Summon a tiger to maim your foes, shove pickled plums down your foes’ throats, and wield an entire cannon to take down your opponents. The heat actions in Ishin will make you want to discover new moves at every stage of the game.

On Unreal Engine 4 for the first time

Like a Dragon: Ishin is the first title from RGG studio to be built on Unreal Engine 4, bringing stunning graphical quality to the Like a Dragon franchise. Development on Unreal Engine 4 has unlocked new textures and other graphical details that make Ishin’s gripping story one of the most cinematic tales in RGG history.

And more…

There is a plot more to come regarding Like a Dragon: Ishin and we can’t wait to share more details. From exquisite mini-game content to unique in-game features that immerse you in the historically accurate world of Kyo, the best is yet to come.
