Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth Story
Like A Dragon 8 is the first mainline title since the release of Like a Dragon 7 in 2020 which marked a new beginning from the series. The story continues the tale of wannabe hero and all-around good guy Ichiban Kasuga who is now hailed as the hero of Yokohama. But just like the previous protagonist Kiryu, Ichiban just can't escape the Japanese Underworld.
First, he loses his job, his reputation gets tarnished and after following a clue that might lead him to find his long-lost mother sends him all the way to Hawaii of all places, he gets robbed. The guy can't catch a break. But Ichiban like always knows how to pick himself up.
This marks the first time the series leaves Japan and is set in the vibrant isles of Hawaii. Here Ichiban has to contest with the local thugs, Yakuza all the way out there, and whoever set him up. But he isn't alone, his friends and former protagonist Kiryu Kazuma are there to help him out.
Kiryu himself seems to be in trouble as the aging Yakuza legend is trying to rectify and make sense of his journey so far. To find out more, check out the new Story Trailer by RGG Studios.
Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth Gameplay
After Judgement, Lost Judgement, and the upcoming Like A Dragon Gaiden made a return to the action combat of the old day, Infinite Wealth will continue the new Dragon Quest-inspired combat from Like A Dragon 7.
Characters will once again be able to select from an array of colorful jobs and abilities and team up to take on the degenerates of the underworld. But you're not here for the combat, you're here for the minigames and surreal nonsense. And don't worry, Infinite Wealth got those.
Ever wanted to be a Ubereats delivery rider? Surf? Fight a gigantic shark? Maybe you want to collect all the local degenerates like Pokemon and become the greatest trainer in all of Japan and Hawaii. And that is just the pinnacle of what we assume will be a stuffed Yakuza game.
