Technically speaking, Like A Dragon: Ishin! does not feature any characters from the Yakuza games. Although they look exactly the same, Ryoma Sakamoto is not Kazuma Kiryu. Thanks to a new Like A Dragon Ishin Kiryu Skin, though, you can make them look even more alike. Sega introduced what it’s calling the “Dragon of Dojima” DLC pack, which contains a skin to make Ryoma look like a man born more than a century after he died.
Check out the teaser for it below.
The Like A Dragon: Ishin! Dragon of Dojima DLC trailer shows Ryoma dressed in the trademark slate-gray suit, white snakeskin shoes, and maroon silk shirt worn by Kazuma Kiryu throughout the Yakuza titles. Ryoma enjoys a spot of rock-paper-scissors with a geisha, has his ears cleaned by Haruka, and trades blows with Souji Okita, a Shinsengumi officer who looks the spitting image of Yakuza alum Goro Majima. As it’s a cosmetic skin, he’ll also be able to wear it while doing activities like the Coliseum or Battle Dungeon.
The Like A Dragon Ishin Kiryu skin pack is included with the Digital Deluxe edition of the game. It’s one of six optional DLC packs that are part of the bundle. The other DLC packs include costumes and cosmetic unlocks, as well as items to make early-game progression faster.
The packs included are:
- Shinsengumi Captain’s Set
- Ryoma Growth Support Kit
- Sword Upgrade Materials Kit
- Gun Upgrade Materials Kit
- Third Divison Armament Expansion Kit
- Dragon of Dojima Skin
Additionally, three weapons are included on top of the DLC packs.
- Kijinmaru Kunishige sword
- Tsuyano Usukurenai sword
- Black Ship Cannon
Pre-orders of the Digital Deluxe edition also get early access to the game. For them, it’ll be playable on February 17, 2023 at 3:00 PM GMT.
For everyone else, Like A Dragon: Ishin! launches on February 21, 2023, on the PS4, PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X|S.
