Like a Dragon Gaiden Details Akame’s Story Role, More Characters Introduced

Ryū ga Gotoku Studio released new information and screenshots for Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. The update covers how protagonist Kazuma Kiryu encounters supporting character Akame, as well as introducing more members of the Daidoji Faction that Kiryu is working for at the time of the game.

Following an incident on a mission for the Daidoji Faction, for whom he is working under the code name “Joryu” after discarding his past, Kiryu finds Akame. She is deeply involved with the underground society around Sotenbori and has her own intelligence network among the city’s homeless. As a jack-of-all-trades, she is able to gather information and often takes on requests that others refuse, and Kiryu ends up working with her and supporting her business.

Meanwhile, the Daidoji Faction is led by Kihei Hanawa, who acts as Kiryu’s only contact point with the outside world in his role within the group, though other members also appear. One of these is Yoshimura, a manager who specialises in dishing out violence. He prioritises the faction above all others and has contempt for Kiryu, who has no such allegiance. Another major player in the clan is a wheelchair-bound man who is surrounded in mystery. He exerts storng influence and reminds Kiryu of the promise he made to the group. Finally, the Daidoji Faction’s head priest is one of the few people Kiryu confides in. He can often be found playing Go by himself.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is set between the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. The game will release on November 9, 2023, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It will see players exploring the locations of Sotenbori and Yokohama, and feature its traditional brawler combat with two different fighting styles: Yakuza and Agent.
