SEGA is set to unleash their newest installment in the Yakuza franchise. Once again putting players into the shoes of the legendary Ichiban Kasuga, you will be able to explore the beautiful and warm tropical beaches of Hawaii while gathering a party of zany characters. The flight to Hawaii lands in just a couple of days, and here you will find the Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth release date and time countdown for PT, ET, and UK GMT so you know exactly when it comes out to play.

Before it unlocks, make sure you preload. This will allow you to begin playing the very second its countdown has finished. To preload you will need to pre-order, and, if you’re committed to purchasing the game, you should know that new game plus requires you to at least buy the Deluxe edition. This is a very controversial move, but some contrasting good news is that the game boasts a 90 on Metacritic which aligns with our 9/10 review.

Whether you’re buying the Standard, Deluxe, or Ultimate edition, the release date and time countdown for Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth remains the same.

Is there a Like a Dragon Infinite Wealth demo

The good news is that there is a Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth demo. The bad news is, at the time of writing, it’s not available for anyone to just download. Rather, the demo is included with the previous spin-off game, 2023’s Like a Dragon Gaiden The Man Who Erased His Name.

To access the demo, you must complete Like A Dragon: The Man Who Erased His Name to its credits. You can then play a 15 minute game trial of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth with a scenario exclusive to the demo. Progress from the demo will not carry across to the full game, so don’t worry too much if you don’t feel like playing the Special Trial version. Fortunately, Like A Dragon: The Man Who Erased His Name is on Game Pass and is a must-play before Infinite Wealth so get to it!

Will Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth have an English dub

Yes, Sega has confirmed that Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch with an English audio dub, via one of its recent story trailers.

The previous spin-off game, Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Forgot His Name only launched with a Japanese dub with English subtitles. However, a patch was launched a few months after its initial release that added an English dub to the game. Infinite Wealth players who want to hear the game in English from the off won’t have to wait as long – and as a bonus, the English voice dub will also include Hollywood actors Danny Trejo and Daniel Dae Kim in its voice cast.

Kazuma Kiryu’s last adventure will feature a unique mix of quests alongside unforgettable moments at every step of the journey. Will this broken man get to live his last days in peace?
