Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth's new map is three times the size of Yakuza 7's Isezaki Ijincho
Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has revealed that Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth’s Hawaii will be a significant step up in playable area compared to maps found in past series entries.
RGG Studio revealed Infinite Wealth's new location, Honolulu City, Hawaii, in a post on X, bringing the franchise outside of Japan for the first time. The developer also claims that it is "more than three times the size of Isezaki Ijincho" from Yakuza: Like a Dragon, making it approximately nine times the size of Kamurocho found in previous entries.
Aside from the massive map, RGG Studio has warned fans that Infinite Wealth will be a "monster class" game, with studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama stating that "if you go at it continuously, you'll get sick" due to the amount of main story and side content to complete.
Infinite Wealth will feature dual protagonists Kiryu Kazuma, a longtime series protagonist, and Yakuza 7 newcomer Ichiban Kasuga, and will take place after the recent spin-off Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. Unlike Gaiden, it will be released on January 26, 2024, and will include both English and Japanese dubs from day one.
