Last week on the Xbox Podcast, we welcomed Sega of America’s Senior Localization Producer Scott Strichart, who brought a lengthy snippet of gameplay from Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the soon-to-be newest entry in the acclaimed Yakuza saga.
We learned that the game is full of firsts: As opposed to a brawler, YLaD is now a full-on RPG. It’s also the first mainline Yakuza game focusing on someone that isn’t Kazuma Kiryu. Interestingly, it’s also receiving a full English language dub, unlike the other Yakuza games on Xbox.
So join us this week as we welcome Kaiji Tang, the English voice actor for new main character, Ichiban Kasuga, and Strichart returns to talk about this new lead character, how he compares to Kiryu-chan, and why even core Yakuza fans should give the English dub a shot.
