SEGA and Ryu ga Gotoku Studio’s Unreal Engine-powered remake of Like a Dragon: Ishin! is coming out very soon on February 21st, and eager fans can now get an early taste with a free “Combat Demo” on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
The demo will allow players to sample the game’s unique multi-style combat system through two intense scenarios – one against some enemies at the Kiyomizu Temple and another exciting fight against three armoured warrior foes.
Alongside this announcement, SEGA is also encouraging players to sign up to the SEGA Newsletter, in return giving anyone who subscribes before March 20th access to two exclusive in-game weapons with the Bonechewer Katana and the Waterdrop Katana.
You can download the demo for each platform below:
We played an early preview of Like a Dragon: Ishin! at Tokyo Game Show last year and enjoyed what we experienced, saying “It’s a game that feels quite different from the mainline Like a Dragon games in a lot of ways, but also comfortingly familiar, not least because it stars approximations of characters you know and love.”
In this historical adventure, 1860s Kyo is plagued by widespread inequality, and one samurai will change the course of history in his search for justice. Take up the sword of Sakamoto Ryoma and venture to Kyoto to find your father’s killer, clear yourself of a framed murder, and restore your honour. In doing so, you will bring an end to the samurai era and forever change the future of Japan.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! launches on 21st February for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
