Yakuza: Like A Dragon gets November launch date alongside Xbox Series X

Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have announced that Yakuza: Like A Dragon will be releasing slightly early on the Xbox Series X and S.


We’d already known that Yakuza: Like a Dragon was coming on November 13, 2020, but today’s Xbox news has brought along a welcome surprise for those looking to play on the next generation of Microsoft consoles. Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have announced that Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S players will be able to play the game a few days early as Yakuza: Like a Dragon launches right beside the new consoles.

Sega announced the special release date for Xbox Series X and S editions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon in a press release on September 9, 2020. While other editions of the game will launch on the originally posted November 13 date, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S editions of Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch on November 10, 2020, the same day as the launch of the consoles. Effectively, players on Xbox Series X and S will get to play the full game a few days early if they want.

It’s been a big day for Xbox with news coming fast and furious about the launch of the new Xbox Series X console. We recently got an official price and release date, as well as the reveal of the new Xbox All Access program, which bundles a console, Xbox Game Pass, EA Play membership, and Project xCloud together in one package for a low monthly price. Yakuza: Like a Dragon launching on November 10 isn’t too much of a head start on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, but it’s still arguably another nice little bonus for Xbox Series X and S players to consider ahead of the console’s release.

As we inch closer to the launch of Xbox Series X and the release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, stay tuned for any final details, or check out our other Like a Dragon coverage for more info.
