Cabaret Is Back in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name

You Can Take the Man Out of Cabaret…

Next year, our hero himself, Kazuma Kiryu will be returning in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. This game takes place between Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. The story will revolve around Kiryu, the longtime mainstay of the series.

We all know the Like a Dragon and Judgment series as a serious crime drama. However, the side missions and mini-games are silly and wild beyond you would expect from the main story. The cabaret mini-game has been in a lot of the games and you can bet it is coming back in Like a Dragon Gaiden.

Like a Dragon Gaiden

Ryu Ga Gotoku is holding a competition for fans to be in the upcoming game as hostesses. Previously, hostesses have been in-game models, but they will be in live-action footage in this game. Live-action footage has been used in previous titles, namely in Yakuza 0. It involved collecting cards of girls, where you could later watch them in sensual videos. The mini-game ends with either Kiryu or Majima having a runny nose for some reason.

The developers will only accept applicants who live in Japan, so that won’t apply to most people. However, just the announcement of the contest brings to light the cabaret; the most important aspect of the game!

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is expected to launch in 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
