Free upgrade from PS4 not available until then.
It’s an odd situation, as only the PS5 version of the game will come later. There’s no hold up for the PS4 version, or on PC either.
PS4 owners of the game will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version when it releases next year, just as Xbox One owners will if they later upgrade to Xbox Series X/S.
This begs the question if you’ll just be able to play the PS4 version of the game on your PS5 through the console’s assumed backwards compatibility support – though we don’t know for sure.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon (or Yakuza 7, if you prefer) is something of a departure for the long-running series in that it stars a brand-new protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga, and replaces previous instalments’ meaty beat ’em up action with a turn-based combat system more akin to an RPG.
If you’re wondering how that impacts the experience, Eurogamer contributor Malindy Hetfield came away both surprised and delighted when she explored the Japanese version of the game earlier this year.
