Yakuza: Like a Dragon Has Next Gen Crustacean A.I. on Xbox Series X

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is shaping up to be quite the next-gen showpiece on Xbox Series X. Today, Sega gave us another look at the game in action.

If you’re still looking for reasons to get excited about next month’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon release, Sega has some great news for you. In their latest video, the team gave a look at all the next-gen enhancements coming to Xbox Series X on November 10. For the most part, they’re pretty standard; however, the trailer also mentions “next-gen crustacean A.I.” and “optimized protagonist optimism” as new features. Both of which sound incredible. Check it out below.

Okay, so obviously most of this Yakuza: Like a Dragon trailer has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek. I mean, I’m sure the faster loading times will give you “lighting-fast party support”, but I really doubt they’ve made the crabs smarter. Who in their right mind would do such a thing? It sounds terrifying.

Jokes aside, Yakuza: Like a Dragon continues to look like an absolute dream on Xbox Series X. It also has me incredibly excited for whatever comes next. I’m imagining a Kamurocho (or whichever city they choose to use) that feels even more open and lived in after devs have more time with the new systems.

Given how great the series’ open worlds already are, that future game could be jaw-droppingly dense. Obviously, we’ll have to wait and see, but if any developer is going to go over-the-top in building their world, it’s Ryu Ga Gotoku.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon comes to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on November 10. It will then come to PS5 on March 2, 2021. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go finish Yakuza 6 before November.
