Following yesterday’s interview with Riki Takeuchi, Sega has released one with Hitoshi Ozawa leading up to the launch of Like a Dragon: Ishin. Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio fully revealed Like a Dragon: Ishin for all consoles and PC platforms with a February 2023 release date. Hitoshi Ozawa played Kuze, who remains one of the most popular characters from Yakuza 0. I got into the series through Yakuza 0 and I’m hoping we get some throwbacks to Kuze’s battle themes from Yakuza 0 in Like a Dragon: Ishin. Hitoshi Ozawa is the voice actor for Ito Kashitaro in the game. Watch the interview below:

Like a Dragon: Ishin is the first Ryu Ga Gotoku game developed in Unreal Engine. The trailer looks gorgeous as expected from the studio, but I’m most impressed by the voice acting and music. Check out the series website here. Following this Like a Dragon: Ishin interview with Hitoshi Ozawa, I’m interested to see who the team talks to next from the returning cast.
Like a Dragon: Ishin releases on February 21, 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC platforms including Steam.
