Pick Up Your Katana with a Like a Dragon: Ishin Combat Demo

People can now test out the latest Yakuza game, Like a Dragon: Ishin, with a Combat Demo. Sega announced it will appear on various storefronts on February 16, 2023. However, this is a self-contained and isolated trial. This means there will be no opportunities to carry over save data. There are also chances to get free DLC weapons by subscribing to the Sega newsletter.

The goal of this Like a Dragon: Ishin Combat Demo is to show off the different fighting styles Ryoma Sakamoto can use in the full game. It will feature two locations, one of them being Kiyomizu Temple, and different sorts of opponents. Sega also noted it would probably take about 20 minutes to see every element in its fights.

As for the two weapons, it showed off what they are and look like. Both the Bonechewer Katana and the Waterdrop Katana are optional swords for Ryoma. As long as someone signs up for the newsletter before March 20, 2023, they can get those add-ons.

Like a Dragon: Ishin early access begins for digital deluxe owners on February 17, 2023, the game will head to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on February 21, 2023, and the Combat Demo will appear on February 16, 2023. The full game also includes a skin that lets someone dress as Kazuma Kiryu.
