Get to know about the upcoming adventure game Like a Dragon: Ishin! That’s because SEGA and RGG Studio released a new trailer which features new combat styles and diverse weaponry in the game.

The trailer shows Sakamoto Ryoma defeating opponents using his samurai sword and trusty gun through different combat styles, including Gunman Style, Wild Dancer Style, and Brawler Style. You can watch the trailer below:

Bring Back Honor

The game is set in 1860s Kyoto, a period plagued with widespread inequality. During this time, a samurai in search of justice changes the course of history. Players take on the role of Sakamoto Ryoma and journey to Kyoto. He hopes to find whoever killed his father while also clearing his name and restore his honor. In doing so, Sakamoto Ryoma not only brings an end to the era of the samurai but also changes the future of Japan forever.

What to Expect

The game is a remake of Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin!, which itself is a spin-off game in the Like A Dragon series. However, unlike the original game, this new version is getting a worldwide release.

Features of Like a Dragon: Ishin! include:
