Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth trailer & story
Although it is light on the details, the Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth trailer confirms that it is a follow-up to Yakuza: Like a Dragon and in a new and interesting setting.
Again starring Yakuza: Like a Dragon protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, the trailer shows the former member of the Arakawa Family waking up naked on a beach in Hawaii.
Merely showing a bit of a strut on the beach before the reacting locals alert him to being out in his birthday suit, even Ichiban himself has no idea what's going on.
Revealed during the recent Like a Dragon Direct, we got to see a massive trailer showing off the story for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Not only does it still focus on Ichiban Kasuga, but also the returning original Yakuza protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu.
Gameplay reveal trailer
Alongside the above story trailer, the Like a Dragon Direct also gave us a look into Infinite Wealth's gameplay with a namesake reveal trailer. Along with the classic crazy RPG action, the latest Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will also reacquaint us with the wacky adventures and side activities we've known the franchise for.
Dondoko Island reveal trailer
If we thought the Like a Dragon franchise couldn't surprise us anymore, Microsoft's Xbox Partner Preview Showcase did just that with the Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth's Dondoko Island reveal trailer. Essentially a Like a Dragon: Animal Crossing mode, Dondoko Island is set to be your "vacation within a vacation where cosy DIY lifestyle awaits" as you create and manage your own island resort.
From buying or crafting furniture with crafted materials, building your own home, and making new friends, to customising the whole island to attract tourists, you'll be able to develop your personal island resort in your town way.
