- From the creators of the Yakuza series, heated samurai epic Like a Dragon: Ishin! is out now on Xbox and Windows PC.
- Fight with katana, firearms, fists, and everything in a samurai’s arsenal to avenge Sakamoto Ryoma’s fallen master and trailblaze Japan’s revolution.
- Xbox fans can download the deadly-elegant ‘Poet Immortal’ katana exclusively from the Microsoft Store for free.
Draw your blade and join the revolution! Like a Dragon: Ishin!, the latest game from the creators of Yakuza, is now available worldwide on Xbox Series X|S. Ishin! is a heated samurai epic that draws from real-world Japanese history and politics fuelled by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s over-the-top action combat.
Following the tale of Sakamoto Ryoma, this lone samurai’s fight for justice stands to change the course of Japan’s history forever.
Ishin! takes place in the 1867 Bakamatsu era, Japan. The country is in civil unrest due to widespread inequality, and political tensions are running high. Ryoma’s master falls in a political ploy, and his only lead to the assailant points to the Shinsengumi, the ruling Tokugawa Clan’s elite samurai police force. Vowing to avenge his master, Ryoma flees to the capital and joins the Shinsengumi undercover where his path entwines with that of the revolution.
The Ishin! launching today is a remake of its 2014 predecessor, which was never released outside of Japan. With tightened combat, enhanced graphics, full localization and all-new content, today’s Ishin! is truly the definitive version of the game to play. It’s largely to the credit of vocal Yakuza fans worldwide that the lost chapter of the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio library arrives to Western shores on Xbox and Windows!
Certainly the katana is ubiquitous with samurai, but there was much more to their arsenal in 1860s. Ryoma can wield period firearms, swords and even his bare fists in four unique combat styles. You can seamlessly change your fighting style mid-fight to counter your opponents.
Forged by Sega exclusively for Xbox fans, those that want to be a cut above the rest can claim the Poet Immortal katana, a deadly blade with an elegant luster. Poet Immortal is available to download for free only on the Microsoft Store. Once downloaded, head to the Teradaya Inn, which is accessible from Chapter 2 onwards, to retrieve the weapon from Bakumatsu Bob.
