I knew that diving into the ninth main title in the long-running Yakuza/Like a Dragon series was going to be a hell of a trip, both emotionally and from a gameplay perspective, but anything my fanboy brain could have possibly conjured up truly pales in comparison to the actual experience Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have delivered here. The developers had previously hyped up the game’s overall runtime, informing fans that, due to the copious amount of content stuffed into this meaty package, extended play sessions could lead to problems concerning burnout or fatigue. And, believe me, they certainly were not kidding.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is positively bursting at the seams with memorable moments, side content, and character interactions, alongside a central storyline of epic proportions set within several locations to explore – including the sandy shores of Honolulu, Hawaii. The majority of the plot takes place here, as our unflinchingly loyal and righteous protagonist Ichiban Kasuga embarks on an international quest to find his mother who was last seen somewhere in the area.

Through Kasuga’s eyes, as a direct result of his child-like wonder and overactive imagination, a trio of otherwise unremarkable thugs and criminals may shapeshift into something decidedly more fantastical.
Hawaii is incredibly gorgeous, by the way. Faithfully realised and crawling with sights to behold, the map is easily one of the largest in the entire series to date.
Your ultimate goal as a Sujimon trainer is nothing less than ascending the ranks of the underground Sujimon fighting arena and becoming the best trainer out there – like no one ever was.
