In our Yakuza: Like a Dragon review, Thomas praised the series for taking a genuine gamble, breaking away from its 3D brawler roots:

Yakuza Like a Dragon is an enjoyable new twist on the series, although it’s not hard to imagine that many long-time fans of the series will be put off by its slow pace. In a day and age where video game companies rarely take risks, Like a Dragon is a refreshing change of pace for a series that risked starting to feel stale.

There has been no new Yakuza game announcements though a PS5 version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon is expected to release in the near future.

That said, series producer Daisuke Sato recently stated that he’d like to localise Yakuza spin-offs Kenzan and Ishin. However, he says, these would need to be remakes and not straightforward remasters.
