Like a Dragon 8 Is Called Infinite Wealth, and It Packs Naked & Confused Ichiban

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth 8 reveal trailer Ichiban Kasuga naked confused at the beach

At the Xbox Games Showcase, Sega and RGG Studio showed up to reveal the first real trailer for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, the new name for turn-based RPG Like a Dragon 8, and it is arriving in early 2024 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth reveal trailer consists entirely of protagonist Ichiban Kasuga waking up completely naked at the beach and being really confused about how he got there and what’s going on. That’s basically the whole trailer.

I know what you’re thinking, and yes, you are absolutely right — this will definitely be the game of the year in 2024. We already knew from RGG Summit 2022 that the game will star both Ichiban Kasuga and Kazuma Kiryu as dual protagonists, and Atlus and RGG have reiterated this formally now with a bit of PR, saying “an unexpected chain of events sets two legendary ex-yakuza, Kasuga Ichiban and Kazuma Kiryu, on a larger-than-life adventure as dual playable protagonists.” Additionally, Kiryu is about to star in his own spinoff game releasing later this year, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name.

RGG Summit Summer 2023 will reveal further information about both of these Like a Dragon games, plus hopefully some surprises.
