Like a Dragon: Ishin Steam Deck compatibility is confirmed. The official Steam product page for the latest Yakuza spin-off got updated. When it did, it noted that the title is now Steam Deck verified. This is an confirmation that it is completely compatible with the handheld. [Thanks, Wario64!]
This is a formality of sorts. It is possible for games that aren’t officially verified to work on a Steam Deck. However, getting the official verification notice does mean that it will work with the handheld’s controls, be able to read, its menus will work, and that it will recognize it is being played on the system and show the appropriate in-game icons for button prompts.
