Like a Dragon Gaiden’s New Agent Fighting Style Revealed

RGG Studio revealed more details about Kiryu’s new Agent fighting style in Like a Dragon Gaiden. At the RGG Summit Summer 2023, Executive Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama detailed the fighting styles in the game. The first of these styles is Yakuza Style, which is Kiryu’s typical style from other games in the series.

However, there is also a new style in Like a Dragon Gaiden. It’s called Agent Style, and it is representative of Kiryu becoming an agent for a secret organization. It’s inspired by spy movies, giving Kiryu gadgets to fight with against foes.

As seen in the Like a Dragon Gaiden Summer Game Fest trailer, Agent Style gives Kiryu a wire that he can use to grab enemies and objects from afar. He can command a fleet of drones that can be used for distraction and other forms of crowd control. There’s also a glimpse of an exploding cigarette that Kiryu casually throws into a crowd of goons.

Yokoyama also confirmed that Like a Dragon Gaiden will mainly be taking place in Sotenbori, based on Osaka. Sotenbori previously appeared in Yakuza 0, Yakuza 2 and Yakuza 5.

The RGG Summit also featured the first look at a cutscene from Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. The scene features Ichiban and Kiryu having a heart-to-heart about marriage.

The RGG Studio team announced that more details on both Like a Dragon Gaiden and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be revealed at another RGG Summit event in Fall 2023.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will release on November 9, 2023. It will release for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
