It’s been yet another eventful day in the world of gaming, particularly due to the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer reveal. Aside from that, Bungie released a sweet cake recipe in celebration of Destiny‘s 6th birthday, Toby Fox gave us a slight update on Deltarune Chapter 2 development, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Tetris Effect: Connected have Xbox Series launch dates, and more. Here’s the video game news you might’ve missed on Sept. 9, 2020.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon Gets a Release Date for Xbox Series Platforms
As announced by Sega (and relayed by Gematsu), Yakuza: Like a Dragon will release for Xbox Series X and Series S on Nov. 10. Currently, the platforms of PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC will apparently have to wait until Nov. 13 to play Like a Dragon, with PlayStation 5 release occurring potentially then or later. Sega moved the date up to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series systems, which are due out the same day.
The company also stated it would offer “more release information on all platforms in the coming weeks,” implying the Nov. 13 date for other platforms might yet shift around.

Deltarune Chapter 2’s Development Is “Going Well,” Progressing Faster Than on Chapter 1
As part of a recent Famitsu interview (as translated by Nintendo Everything), Toby Fox provided a quick update on the development of Deltarune — stating that Chapter 2 is coming along well. Fox explained that the general outline of all chapters is complete and that the first draft of all cut scene dialogue is complete, but he warned fans that, despite the progress, it will still be a while before the whole thing is finished. We can also look forward to a “detailed status update” on Deltarune on Sept. 15 — which is the 5th anniversary of Undertale.
Famitsu is out! There's a really brief update about DR in it. However, even if you can't read it, don't worry! I'm planning to give a detailed status update about how the game's development is going on the anniversary.
