Yakuza: Like a Dragon might have a new main character, but this doesn't mean that we have to say farewell to older protagonists such as Kiryu and Majima. In fact, it's series head honcho, Toshihiro Nagoshi, who reveals in the latest Sega Nama cast that we will see many familiar faces, people who are still considered to be a major part of the Yakuza universe, and he also revealed that Ryu ga Gotoku Studio can't pretend like the previous games haven't happened:
"Guys like [Goro] Majima and [Taiga] Saejima will appear. Daigo [Dojima] and such... I wonder if that's it. The amount of screen time each character has is a bit different. It'd be weird if they were always there, wouldn't it?"
"The timeline goes on, so no matter what we have to tell stories such as, 'What happened after the Tojo Clan?' or 'What happened to Kamurocho?' Those parts become connected stories, and even though Kiryu will obviously have a smaller role since there is a new protagonist, we thought it was important to show how he's doing for fans. Pretending the story up until now didn't happen just because there is a new protagonist wouldn't be right, so that's not the case."
Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be released for PlayStation 4 sometime next year.
