Like a Dragon: Ishin! gives samurai guns

More On: Like a Dragon: Ishin!

Like a Dragon: Ishin! seems like a history lesson I want to take. “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 honor. In doing so, you will bring an end to the samurai era and forever change the future of Japan.” I love that the trailer shows your character fighting with a handful of fun weapons, including a cannon. Best part is the game available right now. 

Like a Dragon: Ishin! Offers over the top action and diverse weaponry, giving players both feudal-era firearms and swords and allows you to switch between four different combat styles. Those styles are Swordsman, Gunman, Wild Dancer and Brawler. A deep roster of varied weaponry marks the historical transition between classic sword fighting and modern armed warfare.

Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game will receive the following:

  • Shinsengumi Captain’s Set
  • Ryoma Growth Support Kit
  • Sword Upgrade Materials Kit
  • Gun Upgrade Materials Kit
  • Third Division Armament Expansion Kit
  • The Dragon of Dojima Skin

Like a Dragon: Ishin! is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. Players can purchase the Digital Standard Edition for $59.99 and the Digital Deluxe Edition for $69.99.
