Yakuza: Like A Dragon PlayStation 5 Version Available Now

Yakuza: Like A Dragon is out now on PlayStation 5, bringing several improvements and a limited-time free costume pack.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon's PlayStation 5 version is available now with a free upgrade for existing owners of the digital or physical PlayStation 4 version. New players can choose from three different editions, which we've outlined elsewhere.

The free upgrade for the physical version requires a PS5 with a disc drive, while the digital version can be upgraded on either PS5 console. Note that, at the time of writing, the PlayStation store is telling owners of the digital Yakuza: Like A Dragon they're ineligible for a free upgrade. However, PlayStation Support said the issue is being worked on.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon on PlayStation 5 benefits from better resolution and frame rates along with reduced load times. It does not make use of the DualSense's haptic feedback, though.

From now until April 2, all Yakuza: LAD players on any platform can download the Legends costume set for free. It includes:

  • Majima's tuxedo
  • Kiryu's suit from Yakuza 0
  • Makoto Date costume
  • Daigo Dojima streetwear
  • Haruka Sawamura costume
  • Taiga Sawajima costume
  • Kaoru Sayama costume

Yakuza: Like A Dragon was one of our top RPGs of 2020, thanks to its "uplifting and hopeful story told with heart, supported by satisfying RPG gameplay and a host of entertaining side-missions and minigames."

If you're just getting started on your Yokohama adventure, you won't be going alone. We've got all the Yakuza: Like A Dragon guides you'll need to make Ichiban Kasuga's rag-tag band the city's new heroes.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
