There isn’t much information about Like a Dragon 8 as the trailer didn’t reveal much other than the two main characters. One noticeable difference was Kiryu, who looked much older and had gray hair. This suggests that a lot of time has passed since his disappearance in Yakuza 6. Like a Dragon 8 will also use the RPG elements that were present in Like a Dragon.

It looks like Ryu Ga Gotoku studio hs currently has three official games in development. The remake of Like a Dragon: Ishin! was announced recently during PlayStation State of Play and is slated for a February 2023 release. In addition to that, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Has No Erased His Name was also announced for release in 2024.
