Yakuza: Like a Dragon has been upgraded today for PlayStation 5, bringing faster load times, improved resolution and performance, and more.
A new comparison video shared by ThePapiGFunk compares the new generation version of the latest entry in the series with the PlayStation 4 Pro version. Load times are slightly faster, and the visual differences don't appear to be massive.
60 FPS support is always welcome for any type of game, but it does not fundamentally change how Yakuza: Like a Dragon plays, as the game is the first entry in the series by SEGA to feature turn-based combat. Even with the changes to the series' formula, the game is a great RPG, as highlighted by Kai in his review.
The mean streets of Yokohama offer the opportunity for a new cast, a new suit, and a new hero. Ichiban Kasuga might not be the role model in the same way that Kiryu-chan was, but this dragon's quest might be the most fun Yakuza title to date!
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is now available on PC and consoles worldwide.
RISE FROM ROCK BOTTOM: Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn't commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most. Confused and alone, he embarks on a mission to discover the truth behind his family's betrayal and take his life back, becoming an unlikely hero for the city’s outcasts on his journey.
