Yup, Yakuza Like a Dragon PS5 version will also be added with English voice-overs when launching in the west.
After announced Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions, Yakuza Like a Dragon will launch for PlayStation 5 in the west, as stated by Sega.
The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Humble Store, and Microsoft Store) versions will launch in November. As previously announced, the Xbox Series X version will launch on day one of the console’s release date. The PlayStation 5 version will release at a later date.
The Xbox versions will support “Smart Delivery,” ensuring consumers will only need to purchase the game once to play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the console and that version of the game are available.
A PlayStation 5 upgrade path is also being planned and will be announced at a later date.
